i've driven my mazda for five years and 90000 miles now. In all that time, i have done nothing to to truck except change the oil, and at times i've gotten behind on that. with 120000 on the clock, i can't complain about the truck. it gets the job done.
reliability, ease of service. takes about 4 wrenches and 2 screwdrivers to disassemble most of the truck.
COMFORT and engine performance. Now that the Ford sixes are available, this is not a problem.
