Good, reliable 4x4 dual cab


Gearbox blew at 180 000km, replaced clutch at same time.

Radiator worn out at 200 000km.

Leaks some oil out back of engine, very small amount. Although it can be smelt after long trips.

Fuel pump replaced at <100 000km, engine would not start after long drives.

Engine still reluctant to start after long running times, 3-4hours.

General Comments:

Great pickup, comfortable enough to drive everyday, enough power to get you from A to B with a load.

Brakes a bit poor, especially when a load is in the back, or have a trailer.

Would buy a newer Mazda pickup.

Very happy with it. :)

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
