Review of the 2004 Mazda B-Series Truck

  • Unless the Mazda name holds a special place in your heart, there's no reason to consider this ancient compact pickup when there are several equally capable and infinitely more modern competitors available for the same price.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Torquey 4.0-liter V6 engine, versatile size, tough underpinnings.

  • Cons

    Dated platform, no crew cab model, limited lineup doesn't match many consumers' needs, uncomfortable seats.

  • What's New for 2004

    The interior gets a slight refresh in the form of a new steering wheel and airbag design, new cloth upholstery and a redesigned center stack.

Not getting another one...

Vehicle: 2004 Mazda B-Series Truck 2dr Cab Plus B3000 Dual Sport Rwd SB (3.0L 6cyl 5M)

This truck ran great the first year and a half I had it. Then it started idling very rough. Then the engine light came on. It took a while for the mechanic to figure out what the problem was because of how few miles were on it. I ended up having to replace the entire top end, (heads, valves, ect...) at 78000 miles. I did not overheat it or abuse it. Also, I found out that is is just a re-badged Ranger. Many parts that I have replaced are not for a Mazda B3000 but for a Ford Ranger. I reliably get 18 mpg out of it. The doors rattle and the rear end tends to hop alittle unloaded on rough dirt roads.

Solid, fun drive

Vehicle: 2004 Mazda B-Series Truck 2dr Cab Plus B2300 SE Rwd SB (2.3L 4cyl 5M)

This is a great little truck. I bought it used with 60K miles and it still feels very tight with no squeaks or rattles. The 5 speed and clutch are smooth with good spacing between the gears. ABS brakes are excellent. The 4 cylinder is more than adequate for normal driving and gets decent mileage. While far from plush, the interior is very livable. Seating is firm with good support and is comfortable on long trips. Controls, A/C and ventilation are excellent and there's plenty of leg room for six footers. A practical truck that's also lots of fun to drive.




A good value

Vehicle: 2004 Mazda B-Series Truck 2dr Cab Plus B4000 SE 4WD SB (4.0L 6cyl 5M)

I paid $18,300 for this truck brand new. There are probably better small trucks out there, but not at this price. For what I paid, I'm quite happy.




Great truck for the money

Vehicle: 2004 Mazda B-Series Truck 2dr Cab Plus B3000 Dual Sport Rwd SB (3.0L 6cyl 5M)

This is the 2nd Mazda truck I have owned and I am pleased with the overall quality, better warranty than the Ranger and Mazda dealers put Ford to shame in service. Fuel economy could be better and the 5 speed auto is alittle slow to respond but overall quality is awesome. Mazda only problem seems to be keeping dealers in stock on trucks.

Mine is a Model 4000 V-6; Bought this little Truck in Feb. 2003, wanted a Ford Ranger Edge but they didn't have the 2 rear drs. w/the 4.0 litre V- 6.However the looks are great! Some minor complaints are: 1. I avg. only 18.5 mpg., 2. There is no map light. 3. The seat fabric stains too easy. 4. The door ajar light came on when I turned left, or curved left. 5. I had to turn the front brake rotors already. Good items are: 1.Power Galor! 2. Fun to drive 3.My Golf Clubs fit perfectly in the rear of cab. 4.and Boy does it carry a load!

This is a good compact truck that is relatively cheap. It does everything most people will need except for large towing. A great entry level truck. The gas mileage is very poor. 5 speed automatic transmission seems to have problems slipping. overall a good truck.
