I bought this truck new in 1991. It now has 233K miles, and until this year, was all original. Other than standard wear (tires, brakes, etc), nothing had been repaired or replaced. It drives great, has been super reliable, and even with 2WD, has been great in off-road type conditions. The manual transmission has been awesome. She's slowing down a bit but still, by far, the best vehicle I've ever owned in the past 30 years. I seriously doubt the Ford Mazdas will even come close.

I bought this car from the original owner a few yrs ago, needed a cheap truck in a pinch. It never broke down or left me stranded until the engine blew w/ almost 230k miles on the original engine and tranny. It was incredibly reliable although bare bones. Great for a first car or a work truck if you can get one w/ low miles.

Reliable vehicle, excellent gas mileage, uses no oil, have maintained oil changes and tune up regularly. Tires are kept in good condition. Quiet motor. AC and heating work well. Radio and cassette work well.

I have owned this truck for a little over a year and so far I am completely satisfied. I did a lot of research on compact 4x4's before buying and after weighing all the pros and cons of each contender, the B2600i came out on top. Easy to work on, good power for a four banger, good price, great styling, tons of space, nice and convenient cockpit, and excellent reliability/dependability. If you are looking to do heavy modifications, look somewhere else, there's not much of an aftermarket for these guys. But if you are looking for a top notch stock 4x4 this is for you.

People I know used to call this
truck "The Tank." It started up every
time without fail. It could maintain
higher than highway speeds for
extended periods of time, even after
100K miles on it. I am certain that I
could have driven it another 200K
without any major problems. It was
extremely fun to drive, and highly
reliable. Despite being a truck, it
handled very well. Most amazing was
its demise. I was doing something I
shouldn't have been doing, and ended
up rolling the thing down a ravine and
then into a tree. Despite all the
damage, the thing could still start up
in the salvage yard a few days later!
Even in death, it lived up to it's
I'm not sure when is the last time you bought a car but a key chip, as part of the immobilizing system, is a common thing in many cars nowadays. The Mazda5 may not be on the top of the car theft list?...
I've owned Mazdas since before Ford got their hands into Mazda -- nonstop since 1991. Let me tell you from personal experience -- Ford's money may have helped, but Ford's mechanical influence has real...
