Default Re: The "what do you hate about your Ranger today" thread

That my four banger doesn't have just a bit more power. I like the 30+ MPG but I went over a 9700' pass last month in second and third gear. A small turbo along the lines of what Ford is doing with their eco-boost engines would be great.

The 3.45 gears. They suck when trying to get up to speed on the freeway.
