Default Ranger Reliability @ Consumer Reports

Since there are several questions and threads about Ranger reliability, I thought it would be good to post Consumer Reports Chart on Ranger - years reported reliability.

Obviously the report is old because the latest model featured is 09
Hopefully it will help those making a decision.

EDIT, I opened the 2wd thanks to TenSilver's suggestion

looks like the 07 would be a good trade up for me

i think its funny to see such a difference in reliability between 01 and 09 considering the drive trains have remained unchanged in almost 10 years. thats why i take consumer reports ratings with a grain of salt.

Can you expand the 2WD section and post that up?

Thanks youcalif!
Interesting that the 2WD drive system was rated better than the 4WD drive system. Unless I'm reading it wrong.
Maybe its the mountain climbing y'all do with the 4WDs?
