Gets the job done but awful as a daily driver
Its a capable off roader. Iv never been stuck. Great for camping. A useful vehicle. But it is so terrible to daily drive. The interior is ugly and janky. The visibility is very poor, the cabin is very small. A honda civic is bigger on the inside. Its feel like i'm driving a military vehicle. Its also painfully slow and has a bad turning radius. Its really a chore to drive. Lacks any sort of driver input, like no thought was considered on how this thing drives on the road. It sucks.
Love my truck.
I bought my used 2002 Mazda B3000 Dual Sport in the summer of 2015 with 121,000 miles on it. I have put about 10,000 miles on it over the last six months with zero mechanical problems. No visible rust anywhere and the interior is holding up well. The ride is bouncy. Head and leg room is limited but adequate for a 6 ft. 3 in. guy. Wish I had the extended cab for storage space. Bed extender is a handy feature. Great little truck!
I've had this truck since 2005 and can say it is by far the most reliable truck I have owned. The only things I have had to replace are break pads and a water pump along with regularly scheduled maintenance. This little truck is not meant for hauling heavy loads, it is meant to be a daily driver and haul light loads. So if you are needing to haul anything over 3,500ish lbs then this is not the truck for you. It can and will haul a small boat and or jet ski's just fine.
This is basically a luxury edition of the ford ranger. The towing is a little bit weak but it is a small truck and that is to be expected. I have had this truck since 2002 and nothing has gone wrong, Overall a good truck and comfortable to drive
Clarification of 1st review
The first review has nothing to do with the Mazda truck listed as it was written in July 2010 stating negative issues that have nothing to do with the truck listed. The Mazda truck listed in very good shape with low miles and will be very relable truck for someone in the years to come. Come judge for yourself.
Worst thing ever
This is probably the worst truck ever. I have replaced so many mechanical things it is not even funny. It is 8 years old and has a bunch of rust on it. The performance is terrible and it can not even tow a thing. I was towing a heavy trailer for a day and then i had to replace the brakes! do not buy it will be a huge mistake
