    I'm not totally sure about this, but I think there is a federal law that a manufactor has to keep some level of parts available for either 6 or 8 years after stopping manufactoring.
  • Hello All, I am a Retired Army Helicopter Pilot living in Belize Central America. I just bought a new 2008 Ford Ranger that you can't buy in the U.S. It is built by Ford/Mazda of Thailand. It has a 2.5 4cyl Turbo Diesel, 5spd man trans, a true four door Crew Cab. This just may be an insight of things to come. I'm getting about 27 -30 mpg on the hwy at 55 -60 mph. This is a full one ton pickup and I love it!!! You can look it up as 2008 Ford Ranger, Thailand. Or FORD/MAZDA Thailand.. I'll be driving up to Texas in 3-4 weeks. Am looking for a Bull Bar. This Ford Ranger is on a Mazda B4000 frame. As you may guess I'll have to bring extra fuel and oil filters with me as I'll be hard pressed to get them at my Ford Dealer. Yes....I'll FEEL like "the Lone Ranger"....

    Well i think ford should drop in 3.5 lt v6 engine thats on the edge. And make it a bit wider. a 6 speed manual and auto trans. Other then that I think its a great truck. They should offer a crew cab like they offer here in mexico. And they need a new interior with better plastics
  • Hello, I call myself the Lone Ranger because when in the U.S. I feel like the Lone Ranger. I have a 2008 Ford/Mazda RANGER 2.5L Turbo Diesel, 4X4, 5 Speed, True four door Crew Cab rated as 3/4 ton. This Ranger, built by Ford/Mazda in Thailand is the perfect Ranger and is giving me 28-30 mpg driving between 55 and 60 mph. You can take a look at the following site. you are welcome to see and test drive as I am in Texas now and will be here for two to three more weeks. loneranger
