1999 Mazda B-Series Pickup B3000 SE 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB


I bought this truck used in 2005 and it had 79K on it. It ran fine for about 2 months, when suddenly a brake line busted when I was in a parking lot. Had to get a complete brake job done because everything was so rusted. Soon after, I had a problem with the Check Engine light coming on, because it blew an oxygen sensor. Fuel gauge hasn't worked right since I bought it. Runs poorly on the highway, only getting about 20 mpg with 3.0 L V6. Manual 4 spd w/overdrive is a bad choice, bc if there is a slight hill on highway and you are in OD, you will not be able to maintain speed uphill. Runs at WAY too high of RPM on highway. Engine is too loud. Not very reliable. Body starting to rust.

Best Features

Accelerates well for small engine, lots of room under the hood.

Worst Features

Needs to be more reliable. Mine has spent too much time in shop. Engine needs to be quieter. Make it a manual 5 spd rather than 4 spd with overdrive. Frame and body tend to rust easily. Needs to run better on highway, vibrates and shakes a lot at 65 mph. And I'll say it again... reliability.
