Detailed Description

One Owner Truck! Please be aware this truck is sold 100% as is. There will be no returns, refunds, or exchanges. PLEASE READ THE DESCRIPTION! ASK QUESTIONS! This truck was driven 48 miles into us. It has been driven about 300 miles prior to posting. Can be driven back to your location, and may possibly be drivable for long periods of time with no investment. This truck runs flawless. Smooth and Quiet. No running issues whatsoever. Drives smooth and straight on the road. The issue it has is that it slips during takeoff.

I have driven it personally and here is what I have learned.

  • Truck drives perfectly for about 30 minutes when cold.
  • Seems to slip only at takeoff when accelerating 60% throttle or more.
  • Seems to only slip when gear selector is put into the D position.
  • Seems to NOT slip when gear selector is put in 1 or 2, and shifted manually into D.
  • Truck always shifts into each gear.


From my experience and research, this is a common problem, and is most commonly 1 of 2 things:

  • "Shift Pack" Transmission Solenoids.


  • Torque Converter Failure.


This is in no way a promise, or a guarantee that either of those fix the issue. Only sharing my experience.


This is an excellent driver, with plenty of value. This truck will sell well under value, with plenty of money to even re-sale yourself. Minimal investment makes this an easy $7,500+ Truck.


This truck is available to be test driven anytime between 10am-6pm Mon-Sat at our Circleville, Ohio Location. Please contact us to arrange a time.

We do not ship vehicles ourselves, yet we will happily refer you to local shippers in our area that would happily ship the vehicle for you.

Ohio Customers will pay sales tax based on their county. Out of state customers will need to sign an exemption form and will not need to pay tax.

Please ask any questions you may have!

Masamichi Kogai new Mazda president and CEO

Fri, 10 May 2013 09:33:00 EST

There's some executive rearranging going on in the top suite at Mazda Motor Corporation in Japan, with current CEO Takashi Yamanouchi telling reporters there "I'd like to hand over the work to younger people" now that the company has returned to profitability. Yamanouchi became CEO on November 19, 2008 of an independent Mazda that had to fight for its future in the immediate aftermath of the global financial crisis. What followed was four years of losses before finally getting back to black last year.
Masamichi Kogai (pictured) will be appointed the new president and CEO on June 25, pending approval at the company's annual general shareholders' meeting. Kogai assisted Seita Kanai with the production-efficiency initiative that Mazda called Mono Tsukuri Innovation, which worked to give export-dependent Mazda the best chance at profitability in spite of a rising yen. Kogai, lately in charge of production and purchasing, has been with the company since 1977 and worked in areas from R&D to logistics.
Kanai, who headed the Mono Tsukuri effort and was among the leadership on Skyactiv, will be promoted from executive vice president to vice chairman. Akira Marumoto will become executive VP of Mazda and assistant to new president Kogai. Yamanouchi will remain Chairman of the Board. There's a short press release below to make it official.

Mazda hard at work on Skyactiv 2 engine technology

Wed, 08 Jan 2014 13:58:00 EST

As Mazda continues the current rollout of its still-new Skyactiv technology, the automaker is already looking at improving its family of engines for even better fuel economy and emissions reductions. Automotive News reports that with stricter fuel economy and emissions regulations planned for 2020 and 2025 in Europe, Mazda will likely release engines with next-generation Skyactiv 2 technology by the end of this decade, and Skyactiv 3 units just five years later.
The latter is expected to focus on improved engine cooling and lessening energy losses, but the big news in AN's report is that the next-gen Skyactiv 2 engines will use Homogeneous Charge Compression Ignition, or HCCI. This type of ignition is very similar to how a diesel engine operates (with high compression and using the compression stroke for fuel combustion rather than spark plugs), a method said to provide a cleaner and more efficient fuel burn - to the tune of a 30-percent improvement in fuel economy compared to current Skyactiv engines. Other automakers, including Hyundai, have already announced they are developing HCCI powerplants with similar technology and characteristics, so Mazda likely won't be a lone wolf here.
Equipped with HCCI technology, Mazda figures to be able to compete with larger automakers in terms of fuel economy and emissions without resorting to hybrid powertrains, continuously variable transmissions or automatics relying on more forward gears (eight or more) for optimal efficiency. Some of the challenges of HCCI, according to AN, include the need for better engine cooling, risk of misfire at high and low rpm and uneven engine performance based on fuel properties.

Mazda3 sales off to rocky start despite massive critical acclaim

Tue, 18 Mar 2014 11:30:00 EST

Like just about every other auto publication we've seen, we loved the way the Mazda3 drove when we reviewed it a few months ago, but those glowing reviews apparently aren't helping its sales. The new compact may be falling victim to a sales war between the Toyota Corolla and Honda Civic, with the newcomer getting squeezed out by those with more established names and bigger marketing budgets.
According to Automotive News, Mazda3 sales have fallen every month since last August, and its sales are down 27 percent in the first two months of 2014. It certainly isn't helping that the entire compact segment is down five percent this year as well.
The biggest problem for the new model seems to be its price compared to rivals. Mazda is not offering the incentives that are on the hood of competitors. With the previous generation, the company offered more than $2,700 on the hood to move them out, but the current model only carries about $1,233 in markdowns, according to AN.
