Great Truck

published

Used my 2012 BT50 5cylinder 3.5 towing to pull our 23ft 2.9ton caravan around Australia for 3years covered 140.000 klms only replacing the alternator.....otherwise trouble free, never missed a beat and towed the van with ease,regular services done ,great truck ,sheep skins on seats ,comfortable over long distances. The plus with the BT 50 for towing is the small amount of overhang from rear axle to the A frame, compared to many other trucks ....

Don't Ever Buy A Mazda BT 50

published

Absolute Lemon of a car. Had a partial engine rebuild at 100000 km, two injectors worked their way loose, & were repaced, radiator leak, & replaced , 2 days later complete EGR cooling system failure cooked the motor.. All this after an additional 80,000km. Drove this car 5 days a week, only highway driving, no towing use, serviced every 10,000km. No off road use, spent more time at the mechanics than on the road

Purchased for $33,001.

Fantastic 4x4 Diesel Flat Tray

published

It is used at least one day a week. It is my private vehicle use for carting wood farm feed and many other things. It is serviced ever ten thousand kilometres. Have only ever had one issue with it which was air conditioning unit. Other wise a great 4x4 diesel.

Poor quality

published

We purchased the fitted car seat covers supplied by Mazda at a cost of over $400. As a family of four, we used the truck on average, 3-4 days a week. The car was regularly serviced and kept clean. After 12 months the covers began to fray at the top and bottom corners.

Purchased in at Ford Dealers for $460.

Spent most of its two years getting fixed under warranty

published

Had it for one day. Broke down. The next two years the turbo went, gearbox, differential......this thing was just a lemon. All it ever did was highway miles and it just kept breaking down.

Poor leather seats

published

3 years old and leather seats are tearing and the only way to have them repaired is to go to court. Have tried to get Mazda to look at this but they refuse and say its wear n tear.

Love it.

published

2015 model up to just over 100000km. Automatic transmission. Love the fuel economy and the towing capacity. Mostly highway driving with occasional off road trips pulling a horse float. Have been very happy with it from day one.

Reliable and strong off-road

published

BT-50 2017 model XT: Added a lot of off-road modifications and found this 4x4 to be strong and reliable and goes everywhere with is rear locker as factory standard. Tows our two 16.3 hand stock horses easily. Very good low range, it's a real low range giving excellent control through the manual gearbox. Excellent downhill engine breaking. The BT50 crossed the Madigan Line through the middle of the Simpson desert and didn't get stuck once with Toyo R/T 285/75R16 at 18 psi and they fit beautifully on this car.

Purchased in at Mazda Dealers for $39,500.

BT50 Wheel Nuts Problem

published

The standard wheel nuts used with BT50 alloy wheels will wear over time (see photo below).
This wear is caused by the rattle gun used by tyre shops.
The rattle gun wears the chrome cover on the nuts.
Once worn it can be difficult or impossible to get the 19mm wheel brace onto the nut when trying to change a tyre.
My solution was to purchase new nuts from wheelmods.com.au at a cost of $42.00 delivered.

As good as any, great support from Mazda so far 5yr warranty is a plus

published

The Bt 50 has been great, after talking to Amarok owners and Hilux guys they are all much the same. Mazda has come to the party with the 2 issues I had with the car. vinyl Floor replaced due to a tear, and DAB radio reception issue fixed.

Returns 10.5l/100km urban and 11.7l/100km on road at 110 kmph with 4 swags on canopy roof .
