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.

One great little truck

by on
Vehicle: 2003 Mazda Truck 2dr Regular Cab B3000 Dual Sport Rwd SB (3.0L 6cyl 5M)

This truck is packed full of features. I went for the 6 cyl and I am pleased I did. The 4 cyl was not as strong and I wanted to haul my enclosed trailer with it. Would I buy another? Yes!




Great truck

Vehicle: 2003 Mazda Truck 2dr Regular Cab B3000 Dual Sport Rwd SB (3.0L 6cyl 5M)

First the cons; small for those over 6', fuel economy is lacking for a small v6, DS should come standard with a limited slip and tow package, should have 6spd manual (mileage and towing would benefit), horrible Goodyear Wrangler GT/S's that come on it, a more Mazda/less Ford interior would be nice, seats are too firm for long trips(pad fixes this) . Now PROS; RELIABILITY, RELIABILITY, RELIABILITY, did I mention it's been reliable? Only issue in 78,xxx + was a sensor @ 5k that was replaced under warranty with no qualms. Paint still looks new, front brakes lasted for 50k, clutch is still great, engine still peppy (although more power would be great). Great deal considering cost vs other ops.




My b2300 truck

by on
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+.




Very nice!

Vehicle: 2003 Mazda Truck 2dr Regular Cab B3000 Dual Sport Rwd SB (3.0L 6cyl 5M)

This is the fourth Mazda PU I have owned, starting with a '89 model. I was originally interested in economy and utility of a small pick-up and Mazda's extended warranty(then, 50,000 miles) was the deciding feature for me. The first two('89 & '95) were driven over 80000 miles, the last one('99), over 100,000 with no problems. My '03 is very sporty and came with a 100,000 mile warranty, which I plan to use to the fullest. Economy ranges from 23 to 26 mpg.




First impressions

by on
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.
