Mazda Anything Is Very Good! — Bought one for $300 with 218,000 miles on it. Because we use salt on winter roads in Northern Midwest, the frame was falling apart between cab and box. After welding on a couple of square tubing supports, it's good as used! Now 30,000 miles later it runs as good as the day I bought it 3 years ago, with only replacing front brake pads. Will probably drive it until the engine dies, which will likely be never.

Pros

Excellent gas mileage for a pickup truck!  26 mpg in the city made this truck worth driving anywhere.  Incredibly reliable, simple, and easy to work on.  

Cons

This is a very light truck.  The doors are paper-thin by today's standards, and almost any accident other than a front or rear-end collision would probably kill the occupants.

Awesome Truck, Loads Of Fun, But Very Basic. — I loved this truck. I bought it back in 1999 with 73,000 miles on it, and eventually got rid of it 50,000 miles later. I did almost no work on it other than oil changes and other routine maintenance. The truck was stick shift and easy to learn, and since I owned it, four people learned to drive on it. Rust ultimately killed this truck, as the frame rotted through to the point where it was unsafe to drive.

1986 Mazda B2000 — This was a good basic utility truck. Cheap to drive and maintain, tough, and cheap to buy. Not good for more than commuter drives, with a harsh ride and sloppy handing, but reasonably fun to drive on short trips around town.

It's A Decent Truck. They Make Perfect Mini Trucks. Loads Of Options. By Charlie

This was another impulse buy, though it faired better than the last one. The truck was filled with rust from bumper to bumper. It was filled with mud, and had these aweful wheels on it. I put new rims... Read More

Hammer It! By Austin

Its not overly fast, but it will get ya down the road. This truck will last a long time if properly treated thanks to the inline-4 under the hood. Its fun to drive on tight roads with sharp corners...... Read More
