Better Than You Think by Jeep lover. on 01/10/2009. Trim: 1996 Mazda B3000 SE Cab Plus 2WD, Owned 10 years.
Pros: I enjoy driving the Mazda, it is nimble on the road and in the parking lot. With the manual, the truck feels like a sports car. Acceleration is good. Reliability is incredible. Biggest problem was replacing the clutch at 127,500 miles. Even then, it could run fine up to an hour. The interior is comfortable, but not lush. The console is simple and thoughtfully laid out. Gas Mileage is good for a truck, I average around 22-23 mpg.
Cons: I wish it had 4X4 drive. There really isn't anything bad bout this truck though.
Overall review: If you want an affordable, reliable, smaller truck, that will keep going through almost anything, that will do what you ask without fuss, this is definitly worth your consideration. Also, it looks better than the Ranger.

Dunn with Voom Voom Voom by BJ from Maine on 08/15/2007. Trim: 1996 Mazda B3000 Cab Plus 4WD, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Mazda has been my choice of vehicle since they first came on the market because of their quality and reliability. Loved them
Cons: Poor quality and reliability. Hate Them
Overall review: Since Ford took over production in 1994, I have seen a drastic change for the worst in the Mazda products and will never buy Mazda again
