Ford Ranger 2015 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Ford Ranger 2015 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Ford Ranger keeps leaking transmission fluid
It would seem the transmission has somehow been damaged. Get under and have a look to see where the leak is coming from, and hopefully you will see damage that is causing the leak. If it’s a very slow leak as you say it could be that it’s been leaking for a while until the fluid level dropped to the point it couldn't maintain drive any longer.
Lots of play in 2015 Ford Ranger tow bar
No, we haven't had other complaints of this issue. There shouldn't be anything like that amount of movement, makes me wonder if the tongue is the correct one for the bar. Take the car to a towing place, like Hayman-Reece, and have them assess it.
Ranger cruise control issues
Earlier Rangers were plagued by problems with the cruise control, and Ford recalled them, but we're not hearing of the same issues with the current model. Perhaps if you could provide us with more information on what it is yours is doing we might be able to give you more of a guide to what could be wrong.
Are SUVs as safe as other cars?
You are right that SUVs are more prone to a rollover, but it's not tested under ANCAP and the electronic stability control compulsory in Australia is partly intended to reduce the chance of any vehicle running off the road.
