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…

Reliable but thirsty

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Mazda B-Series Truck 4dr Cab Plus 4 B4000 Dual Sport Rwd SB (4.0L 6cyl 5M)

I bought the 4.0 litre V6 with auto transmission because it could tow 6500 lbs, 3000 lbs more than the 5 speed manual. I tow a 3500 lb RV, sometimes with a 15 ft boat in tandem. This puts me at maximum combined payload & towing capacity but the truck is up to the task, if I take it easy: about 60 mph on the flats, up to 75 mph downhill. Towing in a headwind, the tranny constantly downshifts but turning the overdrive off helps keep it in 5th gear. A manual tranny would have been better, or more power. Mileage is not the best: about 19 mpg highway, much less in the city. I drive like an old guy, easy on the gas, coasting not braking, and at the speed limit. The truck is great otherwise.




Great truck

Vehicle: 2004 Mazda B-Series Truck 4dr Cab Plus 4 B4000 Dual Sport Rwd SB (4.0L 6cyl 5M)

Perfect reliability, 18 to 20 mpg, this truck was a good deal when I bought it and has been everything I could ask for since. I traded in a 3 liter Ford Ranger I called the turtle because the motor (and transmission) was such a slug but the 4.0 is a much better powerplant and the mated automatic transmission is a world better as well. It tows a trailer quite well and has now been across country and back twice. Not plush but a great workhorse truck.

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

Had an 01 for 3 years without any compaints. Had this one for 2 months and could not be more pleased with its performance.
