I am now on my 2nd Ranger - it is 12 years old and I will be purchasing another soon. What can I say in 12 years of daily use I have not replaced any parts besides brakes and 2 muflers. There is no rust on the truck. This is why I will buy a Ranger again. full 2008 Ford Ranger review

My first Ranger was a 4 cyl 4x4 1990. I sold it to my son when it was 10 years old. I puchased a 3 year old 1997 3.0 L 4x4 and traded that for my 06 when it was 12 years old. The 12 year old 97 Ranger still had the origonal paint and NO RUST. full 2006 Ford Ranger review
