2001 Mazda B-Series Regular Cab 2dr Regular Cab B2500 SE 2WD SB (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Mine has a 4cyl.,5-speed, and a/c.I am not impressed with the gas milage and the seats are very uncomfortable.The shifter is very rough and since about 10k miles, there is a clicking noise from the engine. It sounds like a valve tick.The dealership said there is nothing wrong.I have tried high octane fuel, but that does not help.This truck is painful to ride in and the motor is weak.I am not impressed with this Ford...Mazda.


Favorite Features

Beautiful red paint.Cold a/c.Steering wheel is comfortable.It's roomy.


Suggested Improvements

Shifter feel,base model seats,ride comfort,cylinder head tick.Mazda stop selling Fords.

Review

I haven't had many problems. I had to get the ball joints on the front replaced and new rotors. I cemetric pabs on when I changed the rotors and new tires. I also have a hard shell cab on it. I avg my miles almost every time I get gas and it comes out to 19mpg combined which is fine with me, I knew when buying a truck I wouldn't get great gas mileage. I want a GMC Sierra 1500 ext cab now only b/c its bigger. I wouldn't mind keeping this as a daily driver though.


Favorite Features

ext style


Suggested Improvements

smoother ride I can feel every single bump in the road

Review

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.


Favorite Features

The style of the truck. I like the dual sport design and features. I also enjoy the ergonomics of the interior.


Suggested Improvements

Reliability of parts, better gas mileage, a little more horsepower and torque for towing.

Review

I have had this truck for a little over 2 years now and am very happy with it. I bought it with 30,000 miles on it and it now has 64,000. I have not had one problem with it and it still has the original tires. All that I do is oil changes. I currently get around 26 to 27mpg in mainly city driving. I have gotten as high as 33mpg on the highway before (55- 60mph). You can easily get upper 20's. Don't expect a lot of power from this truck but compared to the S-10 it does seem to have more get up and go. This is awesome basic transportation and I probably will drive it into the ground.


Favorite Features

Nice sounding stereo for a base model. It blares and sounds great. I replaced mine only so I could get a CD player but I kept the factory speakers. Nice large cup holders with inserts for smaller glasses or Coke cans. Handles decent for a truck and gets great gas mileage.


Suggested Improvements

Well I'm pretty satisfied with my truck and for the money I paid for it I can't really think of any improvement that I wish it had.

Review

After shopping around, found this vehicle to be the best for the money by far. Was only lacking skid plates and limited slip rear. Added a few details and everyone admires its appearance!V6 lacks in the mileage, but they all do once away fromthe 4 bangers. Overall good truck. 76K now and going for 200K+ miles.


Suggested Improvements

limited slip rear option and skid plates (B4000 only)
