A better question would be what do I not hate about my ranger?

But on a serious note, I hate that it's not an f150

What do I hate about my ranger today?

1. I just bought it and haven't made my first payment yet

2. RUST! Undercarriage, rocker panels...eek

3. Haven't made my first payment yet...did I mention that

4. PO broke the domelight because the passenger rear door wouldn't latch on the bottom so the door ajar light came on and so did the dome light. Cut wiring to latch and replaced light. The new latch is on the list, but...RUST, bolts are gonna need to be cut

5. Replaced upper control arms, all shocks and lower ball joints already. Did alignment after...did I mention I haven't made my first payment?

6. I have a quarter tank of gas left have only gone 140 miles. Im pretty sure the suspension ailments are responsible for this. After the suspension work and alignment it feels peppier and more solid. I have a new fuel filter and spark plugs waiting to be installed sometime soon, but Id rather spend time with my Mustang at the moment.

Are there emission standards for a jet ski? The government sticks their nose into too much, including auto companies designs and requirements. This puts many limitations on manufacturing standards.

Whether dealer or private party, he may have purchased 'As-Is', and unless he received a great deal, a better walk through probably should have been performed.
