1994 Mazda B-Series Pickup B4000 LE 2dr Extended Cab SB
I bought it new and it has been a very
good truck. Nice balance of price +
performance, affordable but
comfortable. Ride is truck-like when
unloaded. I replaced the stock
(premium) stereo and speakers, which
lacked clarity. This truck is really a
Ford ranger, with Mazda trim.
The only repairs I had were a bad 02
sensor and EGR sensor at about 60K
miles. The brake calipers tend to bind,
and had to be rebuilt twice.
A 4.0L with only teens for MPG should
put out more than 160HP. 225 ft/lbs of
torque is nice for towing, but
acceleration is just ok. I modified the
exhaust/intake and put in a better cam.
Now it is quite peppy, maybe 190-200hp.
good value. good towing abilities. Very
Apparently, they improved both HP and
gas mileage with the 4.0L DOHC engine.
Stock paper speakers stink.
