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.
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.
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.
