I dig it. Easy to drive. Simple vehicle with little to no hassle

2008 Ford Ranger XL

It's a simple truck. No power doors, no power locks. Reliable and easy to service. It is such a common vehicle that I can find parts and knowledgeable mechanics anywhere. It is a small truck and easy to maneuver. The biggest drawback is storage. The spaces in the cab are useless. The door handles have broken off twice already. Some components are cheap plastic.

I have enjoyed having this truck. I cannot wait to get the newest addition.

2008 Ford Ranger XL

I have had it for 10 years. It just started giving me problems in 2018. Overall good truck. 16 gallons to the tank. Around 30 to 40$ to fill up depending on the gas prices. We haven't had any trouble with the transmission. Just under the truck. It does to quiet a bit. We just moved cross country. Took 7 fill ups with the tow cross country.
