No fun to drive, but seems tough enough.

2003 Mazda Truck 2dr Cab Plus B4000 4WD SB (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


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...

Best Features

Acceleration until 88 MPH is strong with the 4.0L, Price, Exterior looks good, Fairly well built body wise, Fender flares help it stay clean.

Worst Features

Remove the freakin' 88MPH limiter! I almost got killed passing on a two lane road, Gas Mileage, Driver's seat needs height adjustment big time, Factory clutch straight out of a focus, O/D (5th gear) needs to be taller, Limited Slip Rear end should be standard on 4X4...
