1999 Mazda B-Series Pickup B3000 SE 4dr Extended Cab 4WD SB


I bought this truck with 23,000 miles. It's a nice truck, but avgs about 12mpg. It's gone as low as 9 and as high as 19. The dealer wouldn't fix it. I had to go to another dealer. They replaced the computer, ign. coil and rear driveshaft and the yoke on differential. This truck had 30,000 miles. That improved the mpg by 3mpg. This is a V-6 not a V-8. It also has a problem they can't find with the gas gauge varying. Sometimes it's 1/3 tank, then empty and the low fuel light is on, then back to 1/3 tank. Once it's below 1/3 tank you don't know how much gas is left. It is great for towing. It handles very well in adverse conditions or when doing emergency manuevers.

Best Features

The 4 doors, but looks like a 2 door. The bench seat with the shifter on the column.The best a/c and heat I've ever had.
