Not fancy, but functional
By Tom B. on


1997 Mazda B-Series Pickup B2300 SE 2dr Extended Cab SB


The B2300 is not the biggest, baddest truck out there. But for light hauling, home renovations, or city deliveries it is easy to maneuver and easy to park. Gas mileage is okay. Unfortunately, my wife is so fond of driving it to the garden store and the big-box outlet mall, I never see my truck anymore.

Best Features

Low-maintenance, most mechanical parts are identical to its twin, the Ford Ranger, so parts are fairly cheap and easy to find.

Worst Features

The 2.4 liter engine can be a bit sluggish - not a towing vehicle by any means, but fine if you're just hauling stuff in the bed. Body parts are more expensive than its Ford Ranger cousin.
