i bought my first ranger in 1984. over the years i have bought a total of 12 rang ers. they have been the most reliable vehicles i have owned. out of the 12, only 1 was put int the shop for a minor service call for a fuel sensor. my rangers have given me many, many miles of trouble free service. when i heard the rangers were being discontinued, i was seriously dissapointed, more like seriously pissed off. why drop on of the most reliable vehicles ever made. now, i either have to but a vehicle that i don’t want or go to another car company to get the vehicle that i want, a small truck. i have been buyin ford vehicles since i graduated high school in 1975. i prefer to stay with ford but will change to get the vehicle i want.
