Looks nice, runs great. Comfy ride; definitely "trucky," but not bouncy or harsh. Good legroom for tall people. Handles nicely in any situation. Good winter driving. Love the power of the 4- liter V6. I've towed pretty close to 3000 pounds up the Columbia Gorge, and it shows no signs of strain; spooling up from 50 to 75 passing a slow semi uphill? No problem, not even with a fully loaded trailer.
THIS BEING THE 2ND MAZDA TRUCK I,VE
OWNED I AM STILL IMPRESSED WITH THE
OVER ALL QUALITY & WORKMANSHIP OF THIS
TRUCK.THE ONLY DOWN FALL I CAN FIND IS
MAZDA/FORD REALLY NEEDS TO ENTER THE
SPORT TRUCK MARKET WITH A TRUCK THAT IS
LESS 4X4ISH .THEY NEED TO BUILD A TRUE
SPORT TRUCK AND GIVE CHEVY AND DODGE A
RUN FOR THE MONEY. HECK EVEN TOYOTA'S
GETTING WITH THE PROGRAM.
Nice truck. I know it's basically a
Ranger but with Mazda's new 4 year
warranty I went with the B-Series. The
fabulous 5 speed auto makes the most of
the small 6 cylinder and I don't see
one every light like a Ranger.
Decent ride, uncomfortable seating if
you are over 6'2", Crummy Mileage (17
HWY), Plenty of power from the 4.0L but
shaky idle, 88 MPH speed limiter (dyno
proven) (Mazda will only acknowledge
this AFTER you buy the truck), 3,000lb
max trailer weight with the 4.0L and 5
speed (read: weak clutch), A/C clutch
engagement feels like you've been rear
ended, Good cruise control, Gas guage
is horribly inaccurate...
