2003 Mazda Truck Cab Plus 4 4dr Cab Plus 4 B4000 Dual Sport Rwd SB (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

This has been a terrific truck. I used it for work for about 5 years and it hasn't been babied. It stays outside year round in the hot Florida sun beachside. Other than 2 sets of tires, a battery, regular oil changes and a set of spark plugs, have not had to do another thing to it and it has run like a top since day one. The paint is fading and it is about due for some body work and bigger maintenance, but I am prepared to put a few thousand into it to keep it around another 5 years. I love this truck THAT much.


Best Features

Great power and styling. Super reliable.


Worst Features

Better gas mileage would be nice. Average about 19 now. 23 mpg was the average the first few years.

Review

This vehicle has been a great vehicle. Not only does it have a sporty look but it has the power and versatility you would expect in such a vehicle. I have hauled mountains of wood pellets, sheet rock and other building materials. I have no need for a bigger truck. Don't be afraid to try the manual transmission. Put the money somewhere else.


Best Features

Surprisingly excellent sound system. Smooth quiet ride, Quick handling for a truck. I take it every where.


Worst Features

Slightly larger windows to improve the review for drivers 6 feet and over.

Review

I have had my B4000 for a year now and I can't say enough good things about it. After I did a few things such as performance exhaust, K&N filter, raised the torsion bars, tinted front windows, and a Tornado (not sure about that one...but hey, why not give it a try...), the truck runs and looks great! From road trips to 4-Wheeling in Moab, this thing does it all. I am finally getting about 18 MPG HWY which I think is acceptable...but still not great. Plus, I had to put all that junk in to get it....but the power is there so I can't complain! Definitely a solid alternative to anything out there!


Best Features

Looks - side step bars, rims, tires and paint (silver metallic) Performance - great power...towing even! 4 speed auto with OD! Comfort - more comfortable than most small trucks out there...


Worst Features

Better gas mileage. Crew Cab would be great! A bit more clearance...

Review

Truck rides very smooth, not the usual bounce that you would expect driving a pick-up of this size. Plenty of power, which would account for the 16 MPG. Good quality overall, in and out. Built solid!!


Best Features

Seats are comfortable and the interior noise level is very quiet. Its easy to forget that you are driving a truck. Seats in back are perfect for kids, in which they enjoy riding in. My wife enjoys driving it as well, (bad for me), now she wants to drive it all the time.


Worst Features

Improve fuel economy

Review

Very nice vehicle to drive. Great exterior look. Roomy interior even for large individuals(extended cab). Four door entry makes life easier getting briefcase or bag from behind front seat. Mazda options really upgrade look. Seats are not cushy but OK. Interior design is nice. Everything nicely accessable. Gas mileage is not great for midsize truck, but power makes up for it on B4000. Upgrade options are worth it. Makes me smile every time I get behind the wheel! Even after I paid for it. More truck for the buck than Ford Ranger. Longer warranty than Ford.


Best Features

Body style,Standard stereo setup, Cupholders,Available options,4 doors, Powerful 4 liter engine,Nice wheels, Truck height,Standard options,Keyless Entry,Electronic mirror.


Worst Features

The seats should be cushier. The look of the headlights should be updated. The gas mileage is less than it could be. The indented extra headroom for driver and passenger should extend a couple of inches farther back.
