Hereditary transmission problems

Vehicle2002 Mazda Truck 2dr Regular Cab B2300 2WD SB (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
ReviewThe vehicle was a delight to take in the rough, even though it was two-wheel drive, I could take it anywhere. It had a good ground clearance, and low rev torque. It's downside is it's transmission. The Ranger series has always had problems with the transmission and when I bought this Mazda I thought they had cleared that problem. Not so. After 7K miles, it began to have trouble shifting in and out of second. It got to the point that I had to skip the gear. After the replacement if immediately took care of second but fourth was now the troublemaker.
Best FeaturesLow end torque. Great styling. Excellent ride height. Excellent range of options.
Worst FeaturesMore reliable transmission. Coil spring swing-arm suspension.(Like that of the off-road race truck.) Bring back the 2.5l.
