Best PU I ever owned

I have owned and driven this truck hard for 8 years. It has been a reliable, hard working tool and transportation for me. I can't remember how I got along before I bought this truck. I gave it regular oil changes (every 3000)and maintenance and it never had a major breakdown. Recently it did need an intake manifold seal, but that's about it. Not bad for 192K miles. And it has great styling. Real sharp looking. Not bad on gas for a PU and a useful space behind the front seats, but almost useless for passangers over 10 years old. Great truck, great value.

My 1998 Mazda B4000

My husband bought this truck for me for my birthday in August of 1998. We have driven it for over 125,000 miles with very few problems - a broken heater and cruise control are the only things that we have had go wrong. We once took it Christmas tree hunting - all the other vehicles got stuck in the snow, but not my little Mazda! I love this truck and hate to part with it, but I need more room. :(

Great Truck

I have had my 98 mazda B4000 4x4 for about two years now and it has never let me down. The truck has just turned 140000 and have only needed to replace brakes. I off road all the time and the truck has only got stuck once. It is all stock other than a set of 31/10.5/15 mud tires. This truck handles great off road and the 4.0 has more than enough power to climb hills and get me through thick mud. Very happy with the truck's performance and would definitely recommend this truck to anyone.

Tough little truck

Very satisfied with this tuff little truck. Bought a slightly used, stripped down 4X4 B4000 44,000 miles ago. (A/T but no power locks/windows or cruise control). Love being up high with the big offroad tires, and not worrying about such things as curbs and snowdrifts. The 4-wheel drive works great. The ride is firm but the big tires absorb most road defects. The engine is quiet, unless really pushed, and the transmission shifts are even seamless at times. Acceleration is a bit sluggish, but I could probably pull a house on wheels with all this torque. The Mazda's are also more attractive then the Fords from the front end styling to the slightly flared rear side panels.

B4000 clutch problems

Overall vehicle I would rate as good. I have had alot of clutch problems. Warrantee covered changes at 12,500 and 32,000 miles but refused to extend and cover at 48,000 miles. Am I the only one that has had clutch problems with the '98 B4000 ? I do know the sister vehicle, the Ford Ranger did have some clutch problems.
