I got my 1999 ford ranger sport back in 2003, with 36K miles on it and now it has 229K miles...Its been up the mountains and to the coast, up to Reno nevada and down to michoacan mexico.... through the frigid cold to the scorching heat... This truck is a beat it down truck... And it will just keep going... keep up with its maintenance and I will take you where you wanna go... when it rains and play with my truck in the mud and it never gets stuck... I trust my ranger (my toy) more than my 2003 mach 1(my baby)... This truck is awesome...

I have the 4x4 XLT supercab flair side. I bought this Truck used with 78,000 miles on it, I now have 105,000+ on it. It has delivered for anything that I have needed for it to do for me. I now take it up to college with me and it doesn't mind the extra driving. My friend has needed to haul stuff numerous times and my Ranger has help him get the job done with no problems! Mine has the AM/FM CD & Cassette, everything power, great inside & out!

Well, I bought this truck a few years ago, have put about 90 thousand miles on it since without anything going out. Purchasing it with 73,000 on it. It's not the most powerful truck when you stomp it but for just touching it lightly it does pretty well for a 4 cylinder automatic. I have pulled many trailers that exceeded the factory pulling copacity just by putting on a stage 3 hitch. The engine runs like a charm. When I change my oil every 5 thousand miles it comes out clean(light coloured). And after comparing the price of this truck to others in it's class this is the best value truck to buy used. Plus it has the highest payload of any compact truck and can be built up to high comercial standards for about 1000 bucks, this is the work truck of the rest of the world no other truck in the U.S. is sold in other almost every country as a work truck. with a couple new shocks and springs it is rated at over 2 tons

I was looking for a reliable small truck for the weekend jobs around the house and to assist with family and friends. The Ford Ranger is strong, reliable with enough room to have the kids tagalong to the lumber yard, nursery etc. Just big enough withough being a full size truck.

I have a 99 supercab XLT and it has been a real workhorse. When I bought it in 99 I never thought I would still have it 16 years later. Totally reliable over that time for me and has been indispensable for hauling any and everything. Only real issues I have had of late has been with some peripheral parts just getting old and deteriorating (door look actuators and cruise control buttons). It has never been in a shop for repair and it is exceedingly easy to work on. I am looking forward to 16 more years with my buddy and really wish Ford had not discontinued the model.

XLT Extended Cab / Auto / Off Road Package 4x4 -This truck has been dependable and trouble free. Bought it with 20K miles and now has 130K. No major repairs ever. Doesn't leak or use any oil. Good work truck, hauled a bunch of firewood, but drives comfortable. 16.5 mpg in town, 18.5 to 19 mpg on the road. Highly recommend, buying another Ranger soon. Best value for the money in this truck class.

Great Truck

by from Pasadena, CA on July 29, 2014

I love the truck and how it handles. It doesn't get fantastic gas mileage but runs on ethanol e-85 which is 50 cents cheaper per gallon. It has been very reliable and looks great.

I currently own a white 1999 Ford Ranger, 2wd 4cylinder engine regular cab. It's nothing fancy, it has 60/40 bench seats, pleather, am/fm radio no cd or cassette, hand-crank windows, AC, 15inch American Racing rims, UWS tool box, Bed liner, less than 30% tinted windows, and BF Goodrich tires. My father bought back in 2000, when I was just a boy, as a company truck and gave it to me with about 86,000 miles on it as a teen. Five years later and I have put the odometer on up to 118,300 miles and let me just say in my time of owning this vehicle it has been wonderful. It's seen me through college, it's gone offroad (NOT MUDDING IT WOULD GET STUCK lol), it's hauled furniture, bricks, lumber, sand bags, etcetera, and the only work I've ever had to do was change the battery, spark plugs, oil/oil filter, and routine tire rotations all of which I can do myself (except the tire rotations). I absolutely love my truck and maybe because it's the first vehicle I've ever owned but it's been wonderful. It's taken dents in the side and I pulled them all out with a plunger of all things I mean I've done maybe two or three patch jobs that look like nothing ever happened! It's just an easy to work with truck that I highly recommend to anybody who is looking for an affordable vehicle for their son or daughter, or even as a good work truck. I've made good memories in my Ranger and honestly I plan to drive it till the wheels fall off. My only qualms would be that the gas mileage isn't outstanding, I'd say I get 15-17 mpg and trying to accelerate up to speed on the interstate with the 4 cylinder model takes a minute. I would say with gas prices fluctuating between $3 to $3.5 it costs me about $45 to fill it up completely from almost empty. Which isn't all that bad but if you drive back and forth to work or school like I do during the week you're looking at filling it up once every week. But seriously I'm happy with the vehicle and am glad that the problems are so minuscule. Hope this helps!
