I Love My Escaps
NOV
07

I own a 2005 Escape… bought it used in early 2006. I have driven it across the country from Oregon to West Virginia… from West Virginia to Las Vegas Nevada… from Nevada to Oklahoma… from Oklahoma back out to Nevada… from Nevada to Washington State and then back to Nevada… from Nevada to Alaska where I currently reside and have never had one single breakdown.

While living in Oklahoma someone slim jimmed my daughters vehicle and broke into it and sold her purse. They came back and attemped to do the same to my Escape… first trying the front drivers door and then the rear passenger door… to my delight they were unable to get in.

I want to thank Ford for making such a wonderful vehicle and to let them know that their locking system on the doors is old method “Slim Jim” proof! I can not think of anything I would wanted different about this vechile other than to add more insulation as to not hear the tire noise as much. LOVE MY FORD!

First of all, I have been "Ford" since I was a little kid -- decided at age 11 that I was moving to Dearborn to work for Ford as soon as I could, and I did in '66; retired in '96.    I've had 3 Mustangs, 2 Broncos, 2 Escorts, and then bought a 1986 Ranger.  I am on my 10th Ranger now -- a 2011 4x4 Supercab like the first 9.  I did not know you were discontinuing them, so waited too long to order one to my specs.   My dealer had to find me an '11, but could only find an automatic; I hate automatics.   But more than that, I hate that Ford discontinued the Rangers and also that they have discontinued offering manual transmissions in everything but a few small cars. I loved all my 4x4 Rangers; they always got me through deep snow out here in Colorado.   I camp in my Ranger under a camper shell.   My two shelties ride in the  back behind my front seats, but they could use more room.   I want Ford to make the larger 4-door Ranger available in the United States.   I am strongly thinking about going to a Tacoma if Ford doesn't announce the Ranger is coming back (my Ford dealer also sells Toyotas, but  I hope I do not have to go that route, as I am against Americans buying imports, but I will to get what I need).   I do not want a larger truck, and I want a 5-speed manual (you don't offer stick shifts in F-Series trucks anymore).   I was on-track to buy a 2013 Escape until you stopped putting 5-speed manuals in them.   Even so, I need a truck with a bed, not a mini-van or similar with too many seats (I only need one seat -- for myself).    I am not the only distraught Ranger owner who is now without a new vehicle to buy.    I like to get a new truck every couple years, so I'm overdue to trade right now, but for what?   A crossover or car would do me no good whatsoever -- except for transportation.   My Rangers, outfitted in the bed for camping, have been my mini-RV's -- I do not need a "suburban" mini van or car.   Please bring the Ranger back.  For the first time in my life, Ford makes no new vehicles that suit me, and I'm not alone.   Ranger owners everywhere mourn that you killed the Ranger here in the States.    How can you make a truck available overseas that we want and not offer it here!?    Well, this is my idea, but it's more than an idea - it's a plea to bring back the only vehicle I can be happy with in the  Ford line.    
Need the Ranger Back
