Pretty truck, great price, average mpg.

2001 Mazda B-Series 2dr Cab Plus B3000 SE 2WD SB (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


A good-looking, tough truck at a better
price and warranty than a Ranger(same
truck). 3.0 needs better mpgs. Engine
has periodic rough idle and engine
pings easily (many posts in forums
regarding these so they are common and
can be fixed). Rides stiff but handles
very well. Good brakes. Check
interior/exterior build quality and
paint before buying VERY CAREFULLY-
mine had trash and runs that needed to
be fixed (never as good as factory
paint). Chrome around windows causes
wind noise for looks only (to be dif
than Ranger).

Best Features

Auto-dimming rear view mirror with compass- love it! standard four wheel abs. Stiff suspension leans very little in the corners. Vulcan 3.0s have excellent rep for reliability. Like the semi-flareside exterior style.

Worst Features

Refine the Vulcan 3.0 to be smoother and get better gas mileage. Bring back the SE ex-cab(not everybody wants a dual sport). I would like a bigger reg cab, so I can fit my 6ft 5 body in (the only reason I got an ex cab). Improve assembly of interior and paint.
