Bought this truck in 2005 with only 37k miles on it. I now have 110k on it. It has been a very good work truck for me. I added a camper shell on it to match the the truck. I normally get about 260 - 280 miles on a full tank of gas. I live in Charlotte, NC so most of my driving takes about 15mins - 20mins to get to. The issues that I did have are the weather striping wasn't air tight. You could hear air coming inside as well as water would leak time to time. That is taken car of now but I feel it should not have happened at all on such a new vehicle. Overall it was a decent work truck not really a family truck nor truck to take on the road for trips. If looking for a truck it is worth a look.

I have owned my Mazda for almost 2 years now. Bought it with 73K miles on it and it runs great. Its a bit rough on back roads but it gets the job done. I haul my atv and wood around my land and it performs well with a load. I get about 18mpg to 20 mpg on the highway and a full tank last me 320 miles.

I got my 2001 in 2005, 45k miles ,as a lease trade in, from a dealership. 2 months after I had it, a valve spring twisted in # 4 cylinder. Since it was still under a extended warrantee repairs were done. I did a lot of driving, short distance, and long distance, run great. I put a total of 270k before the valve springs broke ...again. I now have a rebuilt engine in it. Still has minor little problems, but I do realize that this vehicle is 16 y/o, and will probably be buried with me when I die.
