Need some experienced input
I'm looking at a possibly buying a new/used vehicle. I've always been a Ford guy but this time I'm also looking at the Dakota and Liberty. My biggest concern with a used vehicle is reliability. I have never had any issues with my Ranger and it has run up 218,000 miles. Are either one of these vehicles as reliable? If I go the Dakota route I'm looking for a v-8. Any major issues here? Will either of these last as long as my Ranger? First hand experienced input please.
