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


Review

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!


Best Features

Tilt steering column. Friendly dash design.


Worst Features

replace dealer--attitude stinks

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


Review

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.


Best Features

Reliability, ease of maint. (previous owners of Toyota/Hondas will appreciate), exterior durability, Just a great truck. Doesn't apologize for being a truck--no girly styling or compromise in functionality.


Worst Features

Power, fuel economy, 6 spd manual, limited slip and tow standard, bit more leg room in standard cab.

Review

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+.


Best Features

AC. Roomy. Fuel efficiency. Nice gearing with the 5 speed; relaxed on the highway. Low end torque good for a 4 banger. Price, price, price...!


Worst Features

Nothing significant

Review

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.


Best Features

Sporty styling, reasonable gas milage, and confort(on smooth roads!!) are favorite features for me.


Worst Features

The only improvements I can think of are a little more power and little smoother ride on rougher roads.
