I am 18 years old and this truck is my
first vehicle. I like it very much
and it has never failed me. I have
used it to help relatives move and
various other jobs that required the
bed. Although it is a small, low
truck it had no problem moving
anything. I also have added a few
things of my own such as two 12" subs
in the extended cab and a new exhaust.
My favorite feature is the five speed
manual transmission. It allows for
quick acceleration and smooth driving.
A bigger engine would be nice because
an in-line four clyinder is not very
I bought this new in 1993. Last of the
carb vehicles I think... was reluctant

no repairs, and I am getting 28 mpg. (
tailgage down, no a/c, and freeway 70
mph. Living in Phoenix, runs well.

lousy bench and it is uncomfortable.
my cheap factor. tach would be nice,
and low gas light.
MY MAZDA TRUCK HAS GIVEN ME THOUSANDS
OF CONSISTANT RELIABILITY. IT WAS THE
FIRST NEW VEHICLE THAT I HAD EVER
OWNED, AND STILL DO. AM CURRENTLY
LOOKING TO BUY A NEW TRUCK, BUT WILL
NOT PART WITH MY 2600i, ITS FAMILY.
