Good Truck without Personality
By Bill on
Vehicle2002 Mazda Truck 4dr Cab Plus B4000 Dual Sport 2WD SB (4.0L 6cyl 5M)
ReviewI purchased this truck new, trading in a 2000 GMC Sierra. I got a lot of truck for the money. The truck has been reliable except for odometer failure (warranty) and EGR flow sensor. The 4.0L engine and 5-speed auto transmission are a fine drivetrain. The main problem is that this truck just has no personality to distinguish it from the crowd. The tin-can sound of the doors closing doesn't help. I recently installed a Magnaflow catback exhaust which has given the truck a distinctive sound.
Best FeaturesGood acceleration in lower gears. Smooth transmission. 18/22 MPG city/highway since adding K&N air filter and Magnaflow exhaust. Tows trailer well.
Worst FeaturesMake the doors sound like they are attached to a solid body. More aggressive looking wheels. A real oil pressure gauge.
