2005 Mazda B-Series Truck 2dr Regular Cab B2300 Rwd SB (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I cant help but notice a lot of complaints over the mazda b2300 trucks. i have owned mine for 6 years now. i have never had parts fall off randomly in this time. i drove my truck off the lot with 10 miles on the odometer i have tried burying it in 3 ft of mud. i towed a ford f150 out of the mud that day(stock b2300 is a limited slip 2 wd vehicle)i have driven the oregon dunes, and river roads.only got stuck twice ever.I have put the truck in a drift coarse made of dirt/ gravel. drag raced it, pulled boats, trailers, wood hauls and more. if your truck is falling apart you might consider a rig more specialized to your driving needs but i cant imagine my P.U. failing in reasonable circumstance.


Favorite Features

the magical little 2.3 liter ford powerplant puts out an astonishing amount of power for its size. the truck maintains like a 4200 lb curb weight but its easily moved by what would be a seemingly "too small" powerplant. i also like the simplicity of every system in the vehicle. makes maintenance simple and learning the vehicle easy. its an easy vehicle to learn manual transmissions hydraulic clutch engage systems make taking off smooth and simple. a test driver explained this truck as "boring" well yes i suspect if you drive high end sports cars all day by profession this would be boring. but for those of us that simply need versatility and simplicity this is a pick with pep


Suggested Improvements

more cab space in the smaller trucks. i doubt the extra cab space would be detrimental to overall performance, and drivability. makes adding a sound system impossible unless you can find some really high end 5x8 and 5 1/4 speakers. i also wish there were more available aftermarket parts (bolt ons) the 2.3 liter block is pretty common but there really is a huge limitation on non oem parts. mabey a sport version with a lower suspension and interior sporty package.

Truck is great, just should have gotten a liner with it but thats my fault not theirs. I love this truck, Its a small reliable truck with enough space to hull pretty much what ever you want. Its fun to drive and has some get up and go for a four banger.
