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

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.

Review

You can get some really good deals on this truck... I got Auto with AC. It's got ton's of room way more then a toyota. I've had this truck for over 5K miles and no problems except the tires it came with were crap had them road balanced and basically unbalanceable. Mazda service SUCKS... I don't think I'll ever buy another Mazda... But, for the price, and seeing how I'll probably get a new one in 3-5 years. I think it will hold it's value for a long time to come.


Best Features

Truck is roomy. Comfortable and handles well. Comes with AC/Fog Lights/CC/CD Player/RIMS/Automatic w/OD -ABS and Antitheft system standard. Not bad for a 16K truck. Most cars arn't that equiped at that price.


Worst Features

Engiene has a wierd vibration at idle. Gas Millage isn't that great. Paint scrathes very easy. NOT MADE BY MAZDA anymore. It's a FORD Product.. :( Mazda service is the worst. They will be quick to point what is and what is not coverd in the warranty.
