I bought my 92 b2200 new. 2 clutches and new head gasket at 220k miles and that is it other than belt changes and preventative maintenance . I'm currently having it rebuilt at 356k miles. Got my money's worth. Putting a Weber carb and $1200 total rebuild price. What a great investment.
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.
None really, bench seats, no ac but I would have driven it anywhere without worrying about it breaking it down.
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.
Excellent gas mileage. Reliability, comfort in summer and winter.
Truck bed could be repainted. Replace interior light.
I bought this truck used and have been
enjoying it for over 10 years now. You
have to admire a truck that's still in
good shape after 140,000 miles. The
interior is comfortable, almost
luxurious for a truck, and nothing has
come loose. The engine has just had
the usual routine maintenance items.
It's aging gracefully like a fine
wine. I had to have the A/C
retrofitted to use non-CFC
refrigerant. Body rust is minimal even
though I've lived near saltwater most
of the time. My hat is off to Mazda
for a superbly reliable truck. (Don't
be fooled - The new "Mazda" trucks are
Comfortable interior, Excellent quality
interior materials, super warm heat and
Pretty sluggish on steep grades. This
truck, and any truck, really needs at
least a V6 engine.
