2002 Mazda Truck 4dr Cab Plus B4000 4WD SB (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

B4000 has lots going for it PRIMARILY the 4L 208HP, largest in class - greatest horsepower per dollar spent (w/ Ranger). Nissan “supercharged” engine is slightly larger, 210HP, but less responsive/slower & supercharged engine lacks towing/off road power. Challengers: Ranger, S10, Tacoma, Dakota & Frontier. Tacoma/Frontier only come in 4 full or 2 door models; no have doors. Drives the cost up such that one may be better off looking at bigger trucks. Fun truck, lots of functionality & power, nice high ride, good visibility, shift on fly 4wld, large/cool tires w/ strong, elevated suspension, 4 doors & features (bed-liner, cover, bed extender).


Best Features

The engine/drive! Lots of truck packed into compact. 1/2 doors in the back are great for my dog (rear jump seats stink but serve a purpose). Extras (you have to buy) round out package, expect to spend ~$24K well equipped which matches up well against comparable competitors.


Worst Features

Mazda could make more features standard, & need to continue to manufacture the storage box. Rear seats are cramped. Not sure on future of the B3000 as this trim level seems like a waste to me as it is just a weaker version of the B4000 for only about $1200 less.

Review

great vehicle if it wasn't in the shop all the time. Entire clutch system replaced, transmission and computer problems. This truck is great when it runs, inside and out. Has plenty of power, gas mileage is terrible (14 city). This is my fourth since 1994 and I will not buy another. Two were good and two were bad. 50% is not very good

Review

I think Mazda's differences in interior and exterior won me over, verses the Ranger. It feel's tight,no rattle's, has lot's of power, and it's a ball to drive. And with a 50,000 mile warranty, Mazda belives in it more than Ford does their Ranger.


Best Features

Look's, comfort, power,ride. It has it all.


Worst Features

Turn signal arm too low. Move it up to about 9 or 10 o'clock

Review

Great vehicle to run errands to the lumber yard, the nursery, the dump etc. It is very sporty, has great handling and adequate cargo capacity for its intended use. It is the right size for city use and can be parked easily in our relatively narrow driveway. Dealer was fair in the purchase process.


Best Features

Powerful engine, good ride for a truck, very reliable, well equipped


Worst Features

The 200 horses do get thirsty at times...
