i no longer own a ford ranger truck - sold it because it was always causing issues, so anyways, was wondering if theres anyway that i can get my account on here just deleted out?? I don't forsee me buying another ford ranger or ford vehicle again, so its just a waste of space all the threads and posts i've made.

thanks...

Space is plentiful so that is not necessary. You are always free to hang around here, Ranger or no Ranger.

if you got sick of the ranger and the F-150, what makes you think a dakota or colarado will be any different? for one the colorado is one of the worst rated trucks as far as reliablity and they are about as strong as a pop can. just sayin, doesnt sound like youll be happy with anything you buy.

^why we thought you may have been "sick" of your ranger.

Surely you knew going up to the f150 would have a gas mileage issue. If you were not "sick" of your Ranger why would you even look at Dodge or Chevy. I mean if we are talking full size trucks maybe but when it comes down to Colorado/Dakota vs Ranger there is no contest IMO.

the ranger had always had an issue plus the other prob, so this thing I got was the only truck i could find with a manual shift transmssion. I don't buy cars with auto shift if I can help it - they get worse mpg than manuals.... I was told this one was a goood truck, etc etc but after driving more yesterday I cannot find any of these f-series that don't have that horrible ride and drive... So has to be the truck or type of truck - because the other trucks (the GMC's) don't have this type problem..

come take this dam thing i have for a drive - 20 miles feels like you've ridden on the back of a mule.... even the driver door and the little tiny side door even rattle all time.... Of all the vehicles I've owned (close to 50) this has to be the worse one I've ever owned next to an 05 Cadillac dts...

the vibration starts out at low speed and keeps on the faster you get... but the dealer refuses to look at it - so i'm stuck with the POS unless i send it back to the bank as a repossession - which is porbably what is going to happen... I've been to over 15 car dealers and nobody is interested in giving me over $5000 for this truck on trade in...

indecisive, upsidedown individual.







every vehicle has it's quirks and having owned 50, you should already know this. it sounds like you find something wrong with every one. nothing is good enough to you....you keep it a month, then say goodbye.

i'm retired, and much older than you.... I don't keep one too long, but back when I was driving regularly I put about 50-75k miles per year on a vehicle - so after 8 or 9 monts I traded for a new one again... I've only been driving used cars and ford products since I retired and GM stopped making the RWD B/D body sedans....

Driving at highway speeds are almost dangerous unless the road is very smooth, the vibration is too bad from 35-75 that even the seats vibrate, the bed shakes, the hood shakes, the doors rattle, and when you get to a curve in the roadway, you have to slow to almost a crawl or else the truck will walk with you... The bed shakes constantly at any speed... Its had 2 new sets of tires on it and still the probelm is there. Within about 5-10 miles of driving after balancing the tires out, the tires are thrown completely out of balance again...

Something definately wrong but the car dealer wn't do anything so whatelse to do but just let the bank have it back (get bad credit), or eventually find something else out there to buy....
