The B2300 is not the biggest, baddest truck out there. But for light hauling, home renovations, or city deliveries it is easy to maneuver and easy to park. Gas mileage is okay. Unfortunately, my wife is so fond of driving it to the garden store and the big-box outlet mall, I never see my truck anymore.

This truck has been great so far. I love the gas mileage and nice looks. The inside is much roomier than would be expected. The truck lacks a little power, but that's to be expected. If you're looking for power you shouldn't have gone with a four cylinder in the first place.

Truck is good. It has tons of low end
grunt, but the top end suffers unless
you go aftermarket parts. There have
been a lot more appearing lately. You
can go to rangerpowersports.com if you
want more power and info about
features. I do think the interior
plastic is cheap though, but everything
else is durable and utilitarian. It is
the best handling truck I have ever
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.
