2003 Mazda Truck 2dr Cab Plus B2300 SE Rwd SB (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
I bought this truck new in AZ, no trouble with a/c, cold even at +117 degrees! It's a stick: could use more zip doing mountains, fine if you don't get stuck behind a slow truck and have to accelerate from 30 mph on 6000ft grade. Moved to Indiana, heater warms quickly, far less traction problems than full size van I drove. Not one mechanical problem, piled it high for move, over 2500 miles, very stable in winds, rain; good fuel economy with the extreme gas prices. Very nice turning ratio, good visibility overall.
Front drivers seat wide and lumbar support, a/c-heat great, easy manual shift, smooth ride, great for furniture, big items, low to get in/load, high enough to see. Love radio/cd, great sound quality for standard model. Nothing in interior has fallen off. Very happy with my purchase.
Passenger seat uncomfortable, seats need to come forward further for ease of use of rear interior cargo space. Really could use a snap-on standard bed cover-offer. Wish for moon-roof and ceiling storage for small items.
