Well I searched and searched all forums,spoke with Ranger owners and formed my own opinions. Every person you talk to will give you their "own opinion". Ask them to back it up, aside to the OP in this thread, ask how many people saying bad things about the Ranger actually own one. Admittedly, there were some problems with the first batch and particularly with the automatic versions. The van has been in Trinidad for about 2 years and I think Ford has a handle on things with no issues.
If someone chooses not to maintain at the firm, do their own "mango tree" mechanics (not you OP - generally speaking) and something goes wrong, how can the vehicle be blamed ?
I know persons who had problems and I know persons who are very happy and not an ounce of headache. I think it's all person dependent and how they manage their trucks.
One could argue that the other pick-ups undergo the same treatment and they do not present the type and volume of problems experienced by the fords. As for your statement suggesting that Ford has a handle on the situation, what have they changed/modified to rectify all the problems.

Now they need to do something about the cheap feel of the interior as well as the area around the clutch. With my size 11 steel toe boots, I found it was difficult to send the clutch fully down or even far enough for a smooth shift.
Honestly, my pickup of choice is the Mitsubishi Sportero, even though I'm a Toyota guy. Loads of power and torque for a 2.5, especially the new high output 2.5's, and is very reliable. There are also a lot of creature comforts such as speed sensitive wipers, steering wheel audio controls, sunroof, opening rear windshield, graphical display for fuel consumption, speed etc.

Please note these vehicles aren't designed to run on our "nasty" diesel , because of the poor fuel quality the EGR valve often sticks open and dumps exhaust back into the intake! The first mod I did was to eliminate it!
