I own one. For more users u can try the mymazdaclub.com forums' bt-50 section.

FC for the 2.5L WL-T (non-commonrail DI turbo) is around 11km/L mixed urban highway-town usage.

Interior is OK, no major issues there. Just that the bolts of the suspension needs a tightening once in a while (like half a yr) for me. Dead pedal seems a lil small compared to the full sized one in Dmax

Front is comfortable as any other double wishbone suspension car.
Handling of the BT-50 can say almost like sedan in the corners as you get used to the truck. Body roll control is good for stock suspension. Dmax tend to have more body roll.

Back is a bit jumpy over humps. The seat is a bit hard, meant for long distance driving. The backseat has more legroom compared to Dmax.

As for the harshness of the backseat, you might wanna ask the salesman to drive you around while u sit in the back.

Generally, all commonly-found pickups are RWD for easier movement of load (pushing vs pulling).

Off road gets better at higher speeds.

Which model are you planning to buy?

Thanks for your informations. I am planning to get the 2.5 4x4 manual.

Tested drive the car, overall I'm pleased with the car and need to check with BT owner

if there is any major issues with BT-50?

How about the performance at Offroad?

Alternatively you can check out Ford Ranger as both has identical mechanical. Off road performance is ok, enough torque to get around the rough terrain but I wouldn't want to drive fast in those condition especially the leaf springs at the back which bounces like hell (leaf springs built for heavy load support).

Nice! I'm thinking of getting one. The drive is like a sedan. I'm wondering should I spend a lil bit more for Auto. But truck Manual only fun. And Manual got more freebies & discounts. Is it true maintenance for manual gear is lesser?
