Default Is 125k miles on a Ranger alot?

I am really considering that Ranger with a 125k on it. Its a clean truck. I am just wondering how much longer would I expect it to keep running? I hear of people putting new engines/trans in, then I see the guy with 280k on the orig motor/trans.

So whats to be expected? Try to get one under 100k, or is 125k nothing?

Default Re: Is 125k miles on a Ranger alot?

i got mine at 98,000 miles and its at 107,000 now. my dads 86 has 170,000 miles on it original everything. but he does the oil and keeps the maintenance up like you should. If the guy took care of it changed the oil all the time you should be good. if a auto check the tranny fluid and make sure its all clean. my buddys 99 2.5 has 175,000 miles on it and original everything. so 125,000 i say is nothing

Thanks guys. I am going to bring it to my mechanic who will take a look. I dont see any history of oil changes or anything in the car fax, but then again if you look at my cars thats missing to as I do my own oil change etc.

My truck has 207k on it. When I bought it 5 years ago it had 160k. As long as you keep it up you'll have no problems out of it.

Its really not alot, I mean alot of companies buy these truck for "flet Trucks" they know they get alot of miles and run good. So keep that Ranger, mine only has 99.000 but i know its going to last a long time.

3.0 Motor, automatic trans. Just worried the trans might not hold up as lot of people are getting it rebuilt.
