Review of the 2003 Mazda Truck

  • Mazda's Truck is aging rapidly and a replacement doesn't seem to be appearing on the horizon. Though fundamentally sound today, redesigned competitors due within a year threaten to put this model on the back shelf.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Torquey engines, handsome styling, four-door extended cab model.

  • Cons

    No crew cab model available, limited lineup makes it tough to tailor for your needs, flat and flaccid seats.

  • What's New for 2003

    Two new extended cab models debut: a B2300 SE and a B3000 SE, and they include cosmetic changes like chrome bumpers and grille and alloy wheels. However, you can no longer order a four-wheel-drive B3000 Truck; 4WD is available on B4000 models only. Otherwise, only minor changes have been made to the rapidly aging Truck, such as the addition of A-pillar grab handles for the interior, thicker brake rotors for 4WD models, and the fact that the Power Package is no longer free when ordered with the Convenience Package.

My b2300 truck

Vehicle: 2003 Mazda Truck 2dr Regular Cab B2300 Rwd SB (2.3L 4cyl 5M)

I have enjoyed the little truck. Great for running around town, yard work, trash, etc. Gets 27 MPG with 5 speed.




Year one experience

by on
Vehicle: 2003 Mazda Truck 2dr Regular Cab B2300 Rwd SB (2.3L 4cyl 5M)

Very fit for purpose. I stole it for $10,900. Use it for towing an aluminum fishing boat and to haul gear on long trips to my sailboat in Florida. 30 mpg at 75 mph(!) and I never get less than 25 mpg around town :). I'm 6' 2" and find it very comfortable and roomy. AC will blow you away, even in New Orleans heat. I was looking for a used beater to limit miles on my Vette but couldn't find a decent one for much less than the B2300 new. Yeah, it's light on power (anything is compared to my #1) but the fuel efficiency is welcome with gas @ $2+.




First impressions

Vehicle: 2003 Mazda Truck 2dr Regular Cab B2300 Rwd SB (2.3L 4cyl 5M)

Bought this truck on New Years Day. First new car and all I could get approved for ($8900). Dealership service was below average. As for the truck, it is as bare bones as you can get. I highly recommend you pass up on this unless you are in bad financial shape. The truck is too small and underpowered for any serious utility usage.

Excellent little truck

Vehicle: 2003 Mazda Truck 2dr Regular Cab B2300 Rwd SB (2.3L 4cyl 5M)

This vehicle has been reliable so far. Great build quality, nice styling, and very economical for fuel(though you would expect that from a 4-banger).




Good to go!

Vehicle: 2003 Mazda Truck 2dr Regular Cab B2300 Rwd SB (2.3L 4cyl 5M)

Good power if you rev it. Electronically limited to 90 mph (3500 rpm). Great mileage (24-30 thus far), tows adequately for 4 cyl. Decent stereo, good ABS. Got it for $12,300 (tax included) w/SE-5 package, bedliner, CD,
