An awesome truck, I can't say enough! Fun to drive, reliable and a good looking. I bought the truck new 10 years ago and at 160,000 miles it's still going strong. When I go to sell it, someone will be getting a great deal. Besides normal maintenance, oil changes and brakes I cannot complain. Rear wheel drive can present some problems during inclement conditions. For the money the Mazda truck is a great value and I would buy another in a heartbeat, although I wish they would update their body style (not much has changed within the past 10 years).
I bought this truck 14 months ago and
it hasn't seen a mechanic yet. Only
maintenance. Great truck, looks good,
high, intimidating. This is the troy
lee design truck by the way. The truck
is a little light so be careful on
those icy spots and during rain.
Nice truck, inside and out. Lacks
tire squalling power but will still get
with it. I've been having problems with
mileage, 15 average, and with only
32,000 it should be better. I have
never had problems with the truck in
any weather. It is a great buy, (but
get the 4.0L)
4 doors for lots of easily accessed
Needs a larger engine, or just tweak
the 3.0L a little more.
Purchased new by e-mail after visiting
dealership and not able to arrive at
price. Sales manager called back and
asked price I was willing to spend.
Told him my what I was willing to pay,
he called back with vehicle meeting my
specs. at my price. Enjoy driving
vehicle, drive 65/70 miles per day.
Would have enjoyed the bigger engine,
but couldn't find in TL package at that
Great gas mileage (18-19 with auto and
air). Little bumpy on ride due to big
(16" tires @ 35 psi), but bareable. No
service problems to date (3½ yrs). New
tires at 55M - replaced Firesonte AT's
Looks / overall dependablility /
comfort on the road (freeway).
Should come standard with electric
mirrors (safety) and a wee bit more
