Default Re: How many miles do you have on your Ranger?

Both '00 and '06 3.0's have 220k miles on them today. The only major problem I've had was the need to have their auto tranny's rebuilt($2400/ea) a year ago. Both of them have oil pan/timing chain cover leaks(?), rusting on the inside door jambs and around the front radiator area and having to replace wear and tear parts but otherwise both served and is still serving us well. There were a couple of problematic areas of the trucks but feel it was due to "made in China" parts such as the water pump and ball joints replacements as they didn't last a year. "sigh""smh". I'll never buy/use "made in China" ever again if possible, got an oem water pump to replace the "junK' but no luck getting an oem ball joint as my installer told me it's all made in China, in which I don't know if it's true or not. lol

the mechanic mentioned I must be a die hard fan of Ford and I told em I'm somewhat happy with them but of the oil leak problems and had gotten a Tacoma. His reply, Tacos are expensive and what do you expect with over 200k miles on them, pretty much all vehicles with that mileage would.

Now you see another problem.. Mechanics are kind of dumb. They will sell you bad parts, then give you a poor excuse like "they are all like that". Try looking for a better shop.

I had gotten a flyer from a bigger shop for 1/2price wheel alignment and they caught me with the front end problems. You know I should have known better but my cheapskate nature got the best of me.

yeah, I'm back to a trusty mechanic shop I trust.

KemoSabe, my 2011 XL just began his teen years a few days ago!

I think it's somewhere around 100,070 at the moment. I thought the odometer would add the 1 to the right of the rest of the numbers, but instead it just dropped the decimal, leaving the right portion blank.

Perhaps that's so it has room when it reaches 1,000,000?
