We traded an old F150 for this little 2003 Ford Ranger but the engine failed on July 8 of this year. We purchased an engine from a salvage yard and after 3 months with a bad mechanic we finally have the engine in only to find that the replacement has bad rings and to rebuild will cost more than the truck is worth. Our family consists of 3 people. 2 are disabled and one has limited mobility and is in a wheelchair. We live in a rural community and have found that a light or medium duty pickup works best for our transportation needs. Currently we are without transportation and rely on a neighbor for help but that means one member of our family cannot leave the house because the rural terrain wheelchair does not fit into the trunk or back seat of the car.
