1998 Mazda B-Series Pickup B3000 SE 2dr Extended Cab SB


First pickup I've owned which I refer to as my toy truck. Fuel pump had to be replaced then techs twisted neck behind cap; unable to pump any gas in. It was 2 years before techs were able to diagnose electrical problem. Installed 2 new different batteries as truck would be dead if it sat for 2 days. Replacement of running light relay switch, ABS module plus the door switch. Still have electrical ghosts that haunt the truck. Sluggish for a 6 cylinder drives more like a 4 cylinder.

Best Features

B3000 may be a toy truck but definitely rides like a 1/2 ton.

Worst Features

FIX the electrical problems that haunt the B Series trucks!
