Summary:

Good truck, nice small size, have had bad luck with oil leaks

Faults:

My 2008 Mazda B3000 truck's rear main seal and oil pan gasket started leaking at 9,000 Km. I had them replaced right away. One year later, and my truck is dripping engine oil again.

General Comments:

My truck is quick to accelerate, has a good looking appearance, and is compact. Few new trucks are compact and can hold keep up speed on the hills.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Hi,

I really like this site and used it to buy the same truck. So I wanted to let you know that I have an '06 B3000 (70,000km) and bought it at 10,000 and it's been perfect. No problems at all. A good truck and a fair price. The only reason I'm letting go of it is I have a baby on the way.

Oh, I did blow the speakers, but that's my fault. It does have a great basic system.

Thx again Car Survey.
