The fact that I don't have rear jump seats and 4x4 package. Could really use those two things and it would be all that and a bag of chips!

Don't even know where to start. I hate the fact that its 2wd with the 3.0. The belt squeaks like no other, the driver side front tire goes flat all the time, and its black, which is almost impossible to keep clean. But I wouldn't trade it for anything, except maybe a Level II.

On my old ranger:

the tailgate falls off if you open it
the bumper crumples more each and every time you step on it
two of the tires on it are hard as a greased stone
the exhaust leaks and I couldn't figure out why
the bed has holes in the inside
the rear window slides itself open
the drivers door sticks
the drivers door also won't close the whole way unless you wind up and REALLY slam it
the armrest latch is broken and replaced by a looped seatbelt
the shifter knob pops off
the interior smelled like feet
the front valance is hanging on by a thread
the clutch was overly touchy
the whole body had a twist to it from front to left (but is in alignment, and not doglegged)
the headliner is falling down
it gets only 1-2 mpg better than the 3.0
the 2.3 with 3.45 gears and 28 inch tire combo is a PIG under 25 mph
sometimes it stalled out when cold and wouldn't start for 15 minutes
snow driving = no driving
the back end broke loose any time you tried to turn

My new ranger:

the fact i haven't fixed the few small rust spots yet
the 3.0 is . . . adequate

Seat torn
No AC
Turn signals don't work under 20 degrees
Speakers cut in and out
Headliner falling down
Interior light doesn't work
Plus the ton of repairs it still needs

I love my truck!! But if I had to complain about some thing, it would be the MPGs. 12-15 MPG hurts. But then Again it is a truck, and I spose if I really cared about MPGs id drive a Prius... But some things are damn near impossible to do in a Prius. ( offroad, pull a boat, break 50MPH, keep your man card)

I hate the fact that my Ranger still doesn't have a hand held SCT tuner.

The driver side door lock actuator is bad, and it gets dirty just sitting in my driveway.

Other than that it's perfect!

The inside handle or the outside handle? If its the inside handle. You can always roll your window down to open the door then roll it back up
