Used 1996 Mazda B-Series Pickup
Edmunds' Expert Review
Kinship of Mazda's B-Series with Ford's Ranger is evident both on the surface and beneath. That's because both compact pickups are built at the same New Jersey factory, from the same design and employ virtually identical powertrains and four-wheel-drive setups. Both are competent and attractive, differing only in detail and pricing structure.
New on SE Plus and LE trim levels is a passenger-side airbag that can be switched off in the event that a rear-facing child safety seat is installed. Four-wheel antilock brakes are standard on all 4WD and B4000 models. A rear-wheel system is standard on all other B-Series trucks.
Horsepower of the 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine that powers B2300 models measures 112, and a 145-horsepower, 3.0-liter V6 again goes into B3000 models. Those who like to flex their truck's muscle are likely to be attracted to the B4000 end of the scale. Its 4.0-liter V6 delivers 160 horsepower, plus a 220 foot-pounds torque wallop--just right for heavy hauling and easy merging/passing on the highway.
Two cab configurations are available, as are two bed lengths, with either two- or four-wheel drive. Three trim levels are marketed: base, sporty SE, and luxury LE. SE models get chrome bumpers for 1996. Obviously, Mazda buyers--like their Ford counterparts--get a lot of possibilities at the pickup showroom, at least one of which is likely to satisfy nearly any shopper.
A B2300 pickup looks truly basic inside, but carries full gauges (without graduations) and simple climate controls. In base form, without going wild on options, a Mazda with a simple vinyl bench seat looks to be all truck--pristine and practical, almost like a cargo hauler out of the 1940s. Add such amenities as air conditioning and power steering, though, and you get a comfortable-driving, highly functional machine for only a moderate financial outlay.

Should I lease or buy a 1996 Mazda B-Series Pickup?
Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
