Mazda truck costs less than the sister look-a-like Ford; Mazda is a "A" series of the Ford Ranger, gives very poor fuel economy, very little comfort and very expensive to repair.
Favorite features include the dependability of the air conditioner.and that is about it.
Would be nice if Mazda and Ford would make their trucks more this century instead of changing grills and headlights to make their vehicles new and improved for the following year; face it, your bodystyle died 10 ten years ago.
I bought this truck after selling my 02
Land Rover Discovery. A lot more
reliable then Land Rover and a lot more
utility being a pick-up. This truck
handles better then my S-10 ZR2, Ford
F-150, and Toyota Tundra.I needed a
truck that would fit in the garage of
my new house. Old house actually which
is why garage is small.Mazda has 4/50
warrentee.Ranger 3/36.It has nicer
looking trim as well. The truck is
reliable, has a good size bed, and is
FAST with the top 4.0 6 engine and 5
sp.Auto.Could be better on gas though,
15-17mpg is no bargain for a small
truck. Main attraction for me was I
didnt want another big, hard to park,
harder to handle beast. Overall nice
Perfect size, reliable, good looking,
easy to handle and park, does what many
big trucks do for a lot less money.
Slightly better ride, needs updated
exterior design and chassis, gas
mileage is only fair for a truck this
