  • Safety
  • Pros

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

  • Cons

    No 4-wheel ABS option except for B4000 models. No third door. Most powerful V-6 engine is rated for 160 horsepower; far lower than the competition.

  • What's New for 1998

    Fresh styling, a revised front suspension, a larger regular cab, a more powerful 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, a stiffer frame and a new 4WD system ensure that Mazda's compact truck will remain competitive through the end of the century.

Vehicle: 1998 Mazda B-Series Pickup B3000 SX 2dr Regular Cab 4WD SB

Had the 3.0L V6 regular cab for several years now, 225000k, still going strong. This is a real basic, no frills vehicle, nothing spectacular in performance. However, has never NOT started, has only let me down once when alternator finally went at 210000 mark...no biggie. Sure, I've had lots of little repairs, but all were done quickly. This truck has done lots of harsh-duty driving, so repairs are no surprise. She's showing no signs of trouble, will last forever. Recommended if you need something basic and steady, not hard on gas.
