1994 Mazda B4000 4.0 Litre from North America
Rust along roofline since about 2002; have been touching up paint every few years.
New brake lines in 2007.
Power steering leak in 2013.
Cruise control stopped working in the late 90s I think.
Air conditioning stopped working about 2008; tried recharging, but only worked for a few weeks before it failed again.
Emergency brake seizes if applied. Likely due to the fact that I never ever use it.
This truck has been very reliable over the years I've owned it. Other than a few problems as it got older, most of the maintenance required was minor, for systems that normally wear out (brakes, tires, etc).
I admit that I haven't taken very good care of it, and I put it through some heavy use even though it doesn't get a lot of miles on it (hauling dirt, gravel, wood, etc). The fact that I abused it and it still keeps going without significant problems says a lot.
It has been a very comfortable truck to drive; never had a problem on long trips.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
