2000 Mazda B-Series Pickup B4000 SE 4dr Extended Cab SB
Bought this '99 B4000SE 4WD in July
2001, very happy w/ vehicle. Std
trans. w/ 4.0L 6-cyl is definitely
truck-like - plenty of torque for
hauling, but not zippy on the highway
unless you really push up the rpms. If
you accept that it's a truck and not a
sportscar, it's a pleasure to drive,
wonderful for hauling/towing, reliable,
and handsome to boot. Ex. cab is not
for adults, but just fine for my little
boy. Body holding up well in Northeast
snow/salt. Roomier-feeling cab than
Toyota. Quiet for a truck, able to
enjoy sound system. Overall, love it!
Identical to Ford Ranger but less
Suggest getting rid of Firestone tires
(orig equip) and putting on a good pair
of all-terrain tires - what an
improvement in handling (esp. snow)!
Replaced air filter w/ hi-performance,
bed liner and edge guards, receiver
hitch recommended if you do any hauling.
