I purchased my 1998 Ford Ranger XLT 4-door pickup for my birthday in September 1998. She was my gift to me. She had 15 miles on her odometer when I bought her and I test drove most of those on her.
As I write this story, her odometer reads 249,598.7 miles. Some time in the next 2 weeks, she will turn 250,000 miles, and she’s still going strong.
The worst problem I have ever had with her was when her radiator sprung a leak after a trip out of town. Other than that, it has just been oil changes, new tires, new spark plugs and wires; regular maintenance.
I have enjoyed my Ford truck tremendously.
I have faith that she will last another 250,000 miles and beyond.
