I like the truck, but it has had some
reliability issues. At 30,000 miles a
windshield washer fluid hose busted,
and my main seal was leaking. After I
got it back a couple sensors failed
and caused my check engine light to
come on, and my maifold was leaking.
When I took it back in the dealership
replaced the sensors, manifold and
they found that my main seal was still
leaking and they had to replace it
again. Because of all these things my
truck was in the shop about 4 times in
2 months. I also do not like the
brakes on this truck. I had a few
occasions were when I needed to stop,
I'd slam on the brakes and there would
be very little braking action.
More power is the big news for the ?01 B-Series. The B4000 boasts a new 4.0-liter SOHC V6, while the B2300 has a more-powerful 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine. The flexible-fuel feature on the 3.0-liter V6 has been dropped. To keep up with the additional horsepower, Mazda has made ABS standard on all models. The company has also created a new 4x2 Dual Sport trim level and modified every model's exterior and interior styling. To the chagrin of Troy Lee but probably nobody else, the B-Series Troy Lee edition has been dropped.
