2000 Mazda B4000 SE 4.0 liter
Excellent value for a small Pickup Truck
Idler pulley bearings for serpentine belt froze (warranty repair)
Intake manifold gasket leak - major repair cost.
Speed sensor on differential failed.
Oil pressure sending unit intermittent especially in temperatures below 70 F, okay once engine warms up.
I love the layout and convenience of the plus cab.
The A/C is always cold and efficient.
The ride is very stiff and you know you are in a truck.
Recent electrical problems make me nervous about keeping it much longer.
Gas mileage is okay (avg 18 MPG), but could be better.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Keep the truck, don't sweat the electrical gremlins unless they stop you from driving it. My 1994 has had them come and usually go (except the cruise), nothing that has ever left me stranded. The truck is solid and can be a good "extra" vehicle for you that will last on up towards 200,000 miles.
