Pros: Five speed
Cons: the engine size
Advice: If you're tall don't buy this truck. I am 5'5' so it fits me just fineI love the way this vehicle handles. It's not like the other vehicles I test drove.
Pros: Interior space.
Cons: Vinyl floor.
Advice: Compare price and cab room with a Tacoma- the Mazda wins.The Mazda B2300 is a solid, reliable, gas-sipping truck. I was impressed by the larger leg room (I'm 6'3' tall) - bigger than the Tacoma. The doors sound solid - and they are. I've owned Mazdas before, and will again.
Pros: Dual Sport Pkg.
Cons: I wish it had heated mirrors.
Advice: Go value for the money.This is my second Mazda P/U and I like the way it rides and has the power when you need it. Alot of inprovements over the other one.
Cons: engine idle and transmission
Advice: test drive to get feel of truckIf you are 6 foot plus knee will hit turn signal has you get in. 3.0 engine has rough idle but smooths out during driving. On initial start from standing still, transmission has a noticable engagement. Also has high rpm shifting points. Truck I have has vibration from rear. Checked tires and rims and still vibration.
