1996 Mazda B-Series Pickup B4000 LE 2dr Extended Cab SB
I bought this truck used about 2 yrs
ago to tow my 17ft boat (2500 lbs). I
had my doubts as to if it would have
the power I needed. This truck has
proven it's worth. Not only does it tow
good but it actually drives better with
the load. The truck is very tight and
agressive to drive and the jump seats
in the back are great for the kids.
Knock on wood I have had no probs with
it. The jump seats are definantly for
kids only but they are fine for my 10
and 6 yr olds to make a trip to the
lake. I do get a howling noise that
nobody seems to be able to find. I'm
not too concerned because I think it's
a exhaust prob not drive train.
Small truck that can handle heavy
loads. Although it's a Ford Ranger in
disguise, It looks different than all
those Rangers on the road.
Plastic cover that hides the seat
controls gets kicked when getting in
and out and mine finally broke off. And
if you set anything on the seat (i.e.
cellphone,wallet,...) with the armrest
down, you can expect it to fall into
the back. No complaints at all.
