What can i say?

What can i say? well mine has never had one single issue since i've owned it the last 5 years. It's only got 104k miles on it and runs like the day i bought it.
I dare you to find one of these little trucks for a reasonable price that is rust free, 100% running & leaks no oil or fluids at all, that is under 104k miles & all the same color. Then i dare you to find one that is available when you want to buy it.
Great for the price, amazing for the loyalty that is what best describes this truck.

Great little truck for the price

Pros: My Mazda is still running at 205,000 miles, and it's been a great truck for the cost - comfy, reliable, durable. I bought it from a private seller for $6000 when it only had 54 miles! It isn't very powerful, but it only has a V4 so that's to be expected. The heater core did die at 190,000 miles, and not worth the cost to repair as I live in the southwest.
The AC died 4 at 170,000 mi, had it replaced for $1000. Those were the big costs. Other repairs have been in the last 30,000 miles: clutch, throwout valve, catalytic converter, radiator and fan, water pump, thermostat, breaks. Considering how much my friends poo-poo this as a glorified Ford (which they don't like), I say it has been a real good value for what I paid.
Cons: low power, not stable at all in high winds with a shell on it, not good at all in sand or snow without exceptional tires. If you work on your own cars, access to a lot of things under the hood is tricky, and time consuming, so labor costs may be higher than, say, a similar sized Toyota.
