2006 Mazda B-Series Truck B3000 4dr Cab Plus 4 SB (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

This is a very basic truck, but that's one of the things I like about it. I inherited the truck from the original owner. It was meticulously maintained by the previous owner and myself. It was purchased brand new by said first owner, and it has always run like a top. With the exception of a battery replacement, it has never broken down. I put about 20,000 miles on it in the last year, and it has maintained mpg (around 28 for the v6), never overheated (despite 7 trips in 6 months between Oregon and Los Angeles), and still runs smooth as silk. The only issue has been that the air conditioner no longer works, but I'm sure it's a recharge issue (living in the Pacific Northwest, it doesn't concern me). In short, it's a great truck, and I will keep it and continue to maintain it until it outlives itself, after which I will look for another (either Mazda b3000 or a ford ranger of similar year).

2006 Mazda B-Series Truck B3000 Dual Sport 2dr Regular Cab SB (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Bought brand new $43xxx. As of today, no problems since Mazda now stopped making trucks. Would buy a ranger since they're the same except in name and some minor features


Best Features

ice cold ac & slight higher ride with the ds package


Worst Features

Better mpg with the ds 3.0 I get 19- 21 in city or highway and everyone I met with same truck gets the same possibly due to gearing of ds. 2.3 owners seem to get high 20's

2006 Mazda B-Series Truck B2300 2dr Regular Cab SB (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


Review

What I like about my truck. It has always started, gets pretty good mileage for a pick-up truck. I nearly always get 28 mpg combined town and highway. I've acheived 33 mpg on road trips and maintain 24 MPG in the mountains, which is where I reside. Handles good. Transmission is geared properly for various types of driving. Wish it had more power, but then mileage would suffer, so I'll take miles per gallon over horse power. I am very happy with my Mazda B2300 purchase.


Best Features

Air conditioning is nice and cold on those very hot valley trips I do in the summer months . 110-115 degrees F. And in the winter the cab heats up nicely and is appreciated as we get snow in the hills during the winter.


Worst Features

I like the truck as is, maybe lowering the chassis 1/2 to 1 inch closer to the ground would be helpful for driving in the hills.

Review

Very good vehicle to drive and haul light stuff in. The vehicle could be better at gas mileage, however the horsepower is worth it.


Best Features

Sporty tough truck look.


Worst Features

Better gas mileage.
