This truck has exceeded all of my expectations for a small truck. We've hauled heavy loads over mountain passes, frequently taken it off-road and even commuted in it for a few months. It's comfortable and reliable. I was a Ford girl, test driving Rangers, when I found this truck for a better price. I have no regrets.
Overall, this is a pretty good little
workhorse truck. The dealer was
responsive on the recall issues for the
windshield wipers switch and the
replacement of the central control
system computer which eliminated the
pinging problem. This truck has been
very reliable and the costs for service
at the dealership have been lowerthan
expected. The B3000 could use more
Getting ready to sell this truck, but it has been a very good vehicle for the past 5 1/2 years. Constant engine pinging forced me to use premium fuel (as per Mazda recommendation); O2 sensor went out early, but fixed fine. Didn't handle great in windy conditions. My dog loved riding in it!
This truck has never been back to the
dealer. We do oil changes as
necessary as well as other
maintenance. The only dig are the two
jump seats as they are quite
uncomfortable although the truck was
not bought for them. We have loaded
lots of dirt, towed trailers, and
generally treated this truck like a
truck and have no complaints.
