1999 Mazda B-Series Pickup B4000 SE 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB


The 4.0L V6 provides plenty of
starting, passing, and pulling power.
City gas mileage with the A/C on is
miserable, ~15mpg. Without cargo, this
truck is sometimes embarassing to drive
on hilly roads (like Seattle) in the
rain, as the rearend is very light. I
end up using the 4WD to make turns on
hills and quick moves into traffic from
side streets. Reliability has been
good, at 59,000 miles I've only had one
problem, minor at first, that turned
worse because of lack of interest from
the original dealer. A different dealer
immediately addressed the problem (then
big) and did a warranty repair. All
things considered, this is a good

Best Features

4.0L V6, 5 spd automatic tranny, pulse- vacuum hublocks allow total free-wheel of front drive-line, axle and CVs.

Worst Features

Try to even up weight distribution or add a full-time 4WD option.
