Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

1997 Ford Ranger Owner Comments

problem #1

Feb 252007

(reported on)

Ranger XLT 3.2 V6

  • Manual transmission
  • 78,000 miles

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

My truck with the small V6 and 5 speed transmission gets less gas mileage than what is advertised for a V8 with Automatic. I drive fairly slow and don't race between stop lights. Mostly the bed is empty but I have carried items weighing 300 or more pounds for short distances. I have considered putting in a Flowmaster system (from the catalytic converter back), A low restriction air filtration system, a set of tuned exhaust headers and possibly a fiber glass hood ;if It would gain enough gas mileage to justify the cost.
