I'm ordering a 2008 Ranger Sport in a few days. :D
The inside is junk IMO, but they're most likely discontinuing the Rangers this year, so I want my hands on one.

Any complaints?

Why would you buy a car.... that you think looks rubish?

Interior is ok IMO.Could have made a better center console though. But it looks pretty cool.

Did I say the whole vehicle was rubbish? Sorry my wording was off, but I meant the interior is...typicalFord quality. ;) They've had the same interior style since 95. Other than that, I love it.

I like the truck. How much is it? The inside looks OK but that type of seatbelt aint that attractive. But still a good and cool truck.

Anyone who lowers a truck is STUPID. And I don't think it really needs to be raised, it doesn't seem like a truck you'd raise. And not everyone who buys a vehicle has to "customize" it when they get it((I put quotations on customize because what most people do isn't really custom anymore, because EVERYONE is fucking doing it)).


Anyways, my dad has a Ranger. It's like a 2002, though, I think. He bought it for his pool route. It works, drives nice and shit. I like it.

Out of all the posters on here, you always have a unique touch to your replies. I love you Spaz.

I've seen quite a few people raise their Rangers, but they're 4X4, unlike mine which will be 4X2. Why on earth would I lower it?

It must be a gas-guzzler; I'll pick a Toyota Tacoma/Hilux instead, after watching one being tortured in Top Gear...

Sorry I don't do imports. American only. B)

Yeah, the 3.0 is not the most efficient motor, but the mileage is nice for a small pickup (20/24).

Some Chevy's look pretty too IMO. Barely see any here though.

My point was that the interior is the place you are going to see most. Messed up the sentence a bit..
Does it have any choices/packets for the car that also changes the interior? Cause except for that it look cool.

It's not too bad with the options I chose: Power Equipment (windows, mirrors, keyless entry) and 6 CD Changer with a decent sound system.
I would get leather interior, but that is only available on the supercab. <_<

6 CD changer? Isn't that somewhat over the top?

I don't know about the US, but here it is cheaper to buy the car and then add all those add-ons like leather and good radio. That's because when you buy a car, everything is with 50 % 'luxury'tax. What basically means that the the Dutch government is trying to suck even more money out of the people. But if you buy it afterwards it 'only' has 19% tax on it. For the Mercedes my Dad has bought it saves about 1000 EUR, so I might check that out.

But then the US probably has a completely different system.

I removed it, because it was setting me back $400. But, I really wanted it for the additional speakers that were included, along with a few other goodies. You're right, it would be cheaper to have this installed by a third party.

Doesn't look bad, my friend got one for his first car. Interior is bland, but that's pretty much typical, as you said. lol

Six CD changer isn't over the top. My mom's Escape came with one and I love it. Or I did. It's fucked up now. No one knows what happened, but it won't load or eject cds anymore. But when it was working I'd load every slot with a CD. Fuck yeah.
