  • Info is not yet available.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Better looks and a better warranty than identical twin, the Ford Ranger. Dual airbags with passenger cut-off switch.

Vehicle: 1998 Mazda B-Series Pickup B2500 SX 2dr Regular Cab SB

Experience with this truck has been exceptional. The little 4 cylinder engine provides adequate power for road driving, light hauling, and towing a 16' Bass Boat etc. Seats and suspension provide comfortable ride for extended trips. Minor electrical problem with inside dome light staying on for extended time when turned off. Other than that, an elxcellent truck.
