2001 Mazda B-Series Regular Cab 2dr Regular Cab B3000 DS 2WD SB (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


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.


Best Features

ext style

2001 Mazda B-Series Regular Cab 2dr Regular Cab B2300 SX 2WD SB (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


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.


Best 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.


Worst Features

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

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.


Best Features

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


Worst Features

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

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.


Worst Features

limited slip rear option and skid plates (B4000 only)

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.


Best Features

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


Worst Features

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