1994 Mazda B3000 Extended Cab V6 from North America
Emergency Break doesn't engage sometimes and have to repeat pressing lever.
Shifting into 1st and Reverse gear requires shifting into 2nd or 3rd first;this has been a problem almost since new.
At 123,500 miles have not yet replaced clutch!
Engine feels strong even after all these years.
It's an excellent vehicle in every way!
I do all my maintenance.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

My B3000 has only 44,500 miles on it and I'm having clutch problems. They started when the temps went down to sub-zero. Now it's locked in gear when running and I can't shift gears. Fixing will require removing the tranny in order to get the parts that need replacing. At least a $500 ++ job.

I have owned my Mazda B3000 SE since 1994 when bought brand new. I love my little truck, I have never had problems with it other than the usual maintenance from wear and tear. I love my truck so much I will put a new motor in it when it dies (currently at 200,987 miles and still running strong). I have done all my own maintenance, and it has been pretty painless.
