I have a website dedicated to my year 2000 Mazda B2500 SX, and the reason is because this truck is simply unbeatable in terms of reliability, affordability, and durability. I've put some money into getting things fixed, but I've largely been able to do all the fixes myself, from a clutch to U-joint, to an alternator, to a starter. At this point, if I had to put $1500 into it to get the transmission rebuilt, for instance (which I won't have to because it's 5-speed tranny is bulletproof), I'd spend the money. Sure I could buy a new vehicle at that point, but why? I have one of the best little trucks the world has ever seen!

My dad bought this truck used 9 yrs ago as light general duty truck. It was the most reliable vehicle we ever owned. It became my first car in 09 when i was 16. In 9 years the only problems were a bad ignition and leaking roof, that's it! The thing was tougher than any truck Ive ever seen, a bumpy gravel road at 60 mph was a walk in the park. I cant believe a truck could get 24 mpg and it may not have much power but that's why its light duty. The 5 spd manual had perfect gear ratios. My truck was mazda ZOOM ZOOM fast but not really haha, topped out at 80. it was eventually rear ended by a truck going 70 mph but i was okay, it got annihilated but saved my life.

Purchased this new in 1999 and it has been a perfect utility vehicle. No problems at all and has been in shop only for routine maintenance which is minimal. Still all the original systems including brakes. Just replaced the original tires. Rides smooth for a small truck and handles well in all conditions for a two wheel drive. Good gas mileage and simple systems and controls. It's a 4 cylinder (which I recommend for reliability) and a manual transmission. Paint and trim are still like new.

I am a 16 year old, and this 2009 Christmas I got this truck. It is so nice, the interior is amazing! So i get it and my steering wheel buttons are missing, I don't mind at all. I can live with that. Anybody know where I can get those? Lets get to the point. I'm 16 I take the truck out a day later and wreck it! I shattered the factory mazda rim it came with! Where can I find this rim?! I need new bumpers and quarter panels! If anybody can help me with this I really would appreciate it! This truck is amazing and super nice! I would recommend it to the pope!

I purched the truck brand new, drove for almost 5 years(92k). I was lucky I purchased extended warranty. During the ex-warranty period the transmission gone 4 times, dash board lights gone 3 times, fog light gone 2 times. I never abuse this truck. When the 4th time tanny broke(not clutch), the dealer have a investigation team to check anything I did wrong. They found manufacture problem. Later I trade in for Honda Sub. Now I'm satisfy with my car.
The B-Series Pickup now comes with a four-door option called the Cab Plus 4. Option packages have been consolidated and simplified this year to reduce buyer confusion. A class III frame-mounted hitch receiver is available with V6 applications.
