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


Review

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.


Best Features

Mazda styling, reliability, relatively cheap parts.


Worst Features

More powerful engine would have been nice

Review

Amazing small truck. I put A LOT of miles on this baby. Drove it up from the deep South to New England, then drove it all over New England. I pulled a trailer many a times (the thing thinks it's a 6 cylinder). I NEVER had a problem with it. It seemed to be ALIVE and always wanted to run. Until recently, but after 160,000 one would expect the steering rack and clutch to go. But the engine is spotless and runs GREAT!


Best Features

Interior design, incredible engine! Very easy access to oil filter.


Worst Features

Believe it or not nothing comes to mind.

Review

I cant keep brakes in this truck.Three
sets of rotors,and the passenger rear
drum keeps disintegrating.Close to a
fire the last time.There is driveline
snatch,a delayed cluncking in the
drivetrain,that is scary to people that
borrow it.It allways starts,it is great
on the highway,allmost unstoppable,in
snow,useless in ice or sand.No
mechanic,private or dealer, has been
able to diagnose the drive train problem
One even said the brake problem and rear
axle "play" were related.I have a brutal
commute,all gas and brakes 11 miles each
way through downtown Boston.


Best Features

Highway driving,parking


Worst Features

brakes,brakes,brakes

Review

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.


Best Features

Ride


Worst Features

Little more power for engine
