Chevy is at 68K with a bad tranny still running- G/F drives it now.
In that sense, I could clearly state that I am unsatisfied with my Ranger then. But like you said i need to be satisfied with the overall truck, not just the mechanics of it. Personally, I am on the fence since like I said, there are a lot of things I would change about it and until I make those changes, then I won't be completely satisfied.

Mechanically, I have put more time into my Ranger then my Chevy, but it also has 100,000 more miles. I have definitely put more money into my Chevy, though, lol. The mod bug bit HARD.

Sure. I could unstand if you buy a used vehical that was just beat to hell that could differ the circumstances. I do research on vehicals i'm about to buy. My step father is a privite investigator so he can view the cars background and all that. and both jeep and chevy were clean and clear and still ended up in the dump. So still with my ford. =)

I'm satified with my 2011. My '98 is fine for what it is but I wasn't satified with it because it wouldn't do everything I wanted it to do. That was my fault though for getting less vehicle than what I need.

I love my Ranger, and am very satisfied with it, but whatever it is that makes it run like shit when it warms up can suck eggs.

Ive always been a ford fan and ive always heard great things about rangers so i got a 2001 ranger xlt 4x4 with the 4.0l v6 and i have to say im not very satisfied. Every time i turn around theres another problem. Its turning into a huge money pit. But im not sure if its the ranger itself, or if its just because the guy who owned it before me treated it like shit. Im sure that once i fix everything thats wrong with it, i will be satisfied. But for now im not satisfied.

well.... after replacing the whole rear suspesntion (leafs, shocks, nuts and bolts, the whole subang) 2 months after i bought it.... id have to say....I am very satisfied, my 2.5 liter is bullet proof, i beat the piss out of it and nothing big has broken, just basic maintiance and what has broken (besides the rear suspenstion) has been my fault. only grevence is the 2wd in wisconsin not fun for half the year...as long as i can find them, i plan to buy and drive as many rangers as i can hopefully they will bring the new ranger to the US
