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


Review

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.


Favorite Features

Good power, handles well on dry paved roads.


Suggested Improvements

Locking rear axle, mileage, seat comfort.

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


Review

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.


Favorite Features

Excellent brakes, build quality, very comfortable (even after a 15 hour drive) seats, exterior styling.


Suggested Improvements

Access to rear of cab is tough, especially for bulky items.

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.


Favorite Features

Off road capability, exterior styling, reliability, snow traction.


Suggested Improvements

Better visibility for tall drivers, better fuel economy, more attention to fit and finish

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


Review

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.


Favorite Features

Body style of Dual Sport and firmness of ride. Seat comfort is better than most trucks out there. Fit and Finish is excellent as it is on all Mazda products,also have a Mazda 6


Suggested Improvements

Fuel economy is terrible and parts in stock at dealers could be better. Better access to rear cab on 2 door ext cab. Better choice of seat fabric

Review

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!


Favorite Features

1. Fun to drive. 2. Plenty of Power 3. Sits high; which is good for these parts of the country, it rains a bunch. 4.Grocery shopping is a breeze with the cargo extension.


Suggested Improvements

1. Turning radius needs help. 2.Desperately need a, or several map lights... 3. Interior fabric needs a protector sprayed on. 4. Finally the gas tank should be larger, or get the MPG up!! Thanks
