Default Satisfied Or Unsatisfied

Just wondering if everyone is satisfied with there ranger or unsatified.

Myself, My Ranger is great. Great gas mileage, great for hauling and pulling when I need to. I love everything about it. Modding It is easy and fun. Overall I would expect for me to get another ranger in a year or so, most likely 4.0 4x4 when I get settled job wise.

completely satisified. modding is great and really makes it your own, I love
-My 4L SOHC power and performance and its fuel econo isnt that bad
-I love my manual tranny and clutch feel
-Love the look of the sport with the fenderflares
-Love the 6ft bed and the supercab extra space
-Interior is simple but easy to use
-Sound system is decent

What I dont like
-the Oem exhaust sound, but I will change that soon enough
-Dont like the look of the OEM shifter (but thats cosmetics)
-Dont like the OEM seats for long trips.

The minuses arent big deals so I really love this truck

Very satisfied. I am on my fifth one -- hence my user name fifthranger. I don't know why people make a big deal out of gas mileage, for instance, because it is proven that one can get more mileage per tank by doing simple things like keeping tires properly inflated, changing the air filter and/or oil change regularly, and watching speed. I rarely haul, but I like the truck look and feel. I drive conservatively, but that is not to say that drivers behind me feel like they are following grandpa. I have a 3.0 liter V6 and I think I do pretty well on gas mileage. I try and fill-up when I get below a 1/2 tank, and I know I get better mileage than my previous 4.0 liter V6 4*4 when I had to fuel twice a week.

Yes, satisfied. I'm glad I got the power package with a manual trans, and having the 2.3 is great too, since its usually just me in the truck, and for hauling stuff, I only take the aluminum cans in from the church once a week.

Satisfied? I'm satisfied after I take a shit, or eat a good breakfast. I like my Ranger just like I like my Chevy, but I wouldn't say I am satisfied with either...They both have a lot of things I would change, we'll put it that way.

you can still be satisfied with the overall truck still. I'v owned a Jeep and chevy and im proud to say I wasnt satisfied at all. Both cars were the biggest money pits ever. on both cars both trannys went out. about everything inside both cars BROKE. jeep 140k-SOLD with bad tranny for $2000. Chevy is at 68K with a bad tranny still running- G/F drives it now.
