The truck sits up high & you have to take care with turns because the blind spot is rather large on the right side. The truck operates well, but the driver seat back is a bit high and somewhat uncomfortable at times. Otherwise, it's a great buy and gets about 20 mpg.
Great Commuter Truck!!!

This vehicle makes for an excellent commuter car. MPGs are competitive, Stick shift makes driving fun. This most definitely isn't the family car. Cargo? Sure. Engine's too small for serious jobs, but it'll handle most household needs. Passengers? You only get two, and it's not very comfortable. Performance? Lacking, unless you want to rev high. Fun? Absolutely. You really feel the road in this truck. Between this and the manual trans, my commute is rather interesting these days.

I drive a 2001 Flex Fuel 3.0 liter 2WD XLT and love it. I have over 145,000 miles on it and its still running great. I have had 1500lbs. in the bed and pulling 2000lbs. on a trailer all at the same time. I don't recommend it but it did an amazing job. The truck doesn't drive that well when there's snow on the ground so I add weight in the winter. The maintenance has been very low over all. The 3.0 liter has enough power to pass on highways and has good fuel mileage. I range between 17 mpg with E-85 and 20 mpg with normal unleaded gas. Rangers are great trucks!
