What years did you own? It seems the 90's models had a pretty solid rep.

Nissan customer service is horrible. I had to fight 'em for a while before they replaced a faulty transmission in a brand new Sentra, but that's for another thread.

A moment of silence for the Ranger............

I owned 4 of them from '85 - '98 and they all treated me very well. Maybe with the higher MPG from the F-150 Ecoboost, there's no justification for a smaller truck.

1992 longbed. 2.9 V6 5spd 4x4 w/ 200k miles
1998 Short bed std cab, 2.5/5sp 2wd w/ 130k miles
1998 Extended cab 4.0L OHV, 5R55E, 150k miles

'98- 2011 are essentially the same except the 2.3 duratech came in 2001 and the 4.0L SOHC came in 2001-2002 in the Rangers ( explorers got it in '98 ). front ends and tailgates changed, and the earlier seats were a bit more comfy but pretty much, unchanged.. some parts interchange 1983-2011 also, like leaf springs

Apparently today is the last day of production for the current Ranger.
