Default Hate my ranger!!

No disrespect to anyone here but I totally hate my ranger. I have an 05 ranger with the 3.0 v6 and find it severely underpowered to me. The things I hate about it are the seats are horrible. I have a sensitive kidney from kidney stones and it pains my kidney to sit in that seat. The seats are so stiff to me, it's like siting on concrete. It gets horrible gas mileage. I asked everyone I know who has a full size truck what they get in mpg and consistently they said about 18 mpg. I only get 18 mpg in my truck so why not just get a full size truck and get the same gas mileage? The inside of the truck is just not ergonomically correct for me. I have a tilt steering wheel and if I put it in the position that I like, it blocks the view of the dash and my speed. I have the extended cab and I can't stand how I have to move the seats forward and the back rest all the way forward to try and squeeze anything back there. If you do get anything back there, good luck getting it back out. I was hesitant to get the truck in the first place and will surely end up trading this in because I just can't stand it. I hate it! Sorry for the rant. I know people on here love their ranger, it's just not for me.

The truck is 6 years old, you could swap the seats for some explorer electric/heated/leather ones?

Not every vehicle is for everyone. Given your kidney condition, you may want to look into some sort of pillow or pad to sit on. Any vehicle besides a luxury car likely will not support your back as you see fit. As for mileage, your truck is as aerodynamic as a tractor, and has the weak v6. 4cyls in this truck don't get much better mileage. If you want good mileage, get a small car. My buddy has an F150 with the smaller v8, 4.6. He only gets 15mpg on a good day. Make sure your tires are properly inflated, make sure the engine is running properly, and go easy on the right pedal. This should help a bit.

----------

Guys, get off of the defensive side, and lets try and help his issues. This truck can still be useful for him, he just needs a bit of help.

Perhaps the tie wrap mod would him feel like the truck is torquier

you know what!?!? Its reasonable to believe that he test drove this truck before he bought it, the seats are the same, the performance is the same and extra cab is the same. Perhaps he shouldnt have bought it and if he got it from a relative then sell it and buy something that suits you. I grow weary of so many people who buy cars and then bitch about it and do nothing. If you are worried about performance and size then why the hell did you buy a Smart fortwo.....
