1989 Mazda B2200 SE-5 2.2 I4 from North America
Great truck for casual driving
Power assist steering belt broke going down the road.
PCV valve stopped up and the truck kept stalling.
Won't run on regular gas; must have 89 octane or higher otherwise it shakes badly and knocks itself out of gear.
Choke cable is missing from carburetor.
Great little truck. Just casually putts down the road like it should. I drive it about 4 miles each day (sometimes more) and it is great on gas either way. However even though the owner's manual calls for 87 octane gas, it won't run on that as it shakes and knocks itself out of gear so you have to use 89 octane gas in it. The transmission is so smooth when it shifts it doesn't even feel like you just shifted.
This is my first vehicle and it is amazing; as a mechanic I'm very impressed with it and love to work on it. I also love the bench seat as I don't like bucket seats in old trucks like this.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
