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!

Mazda mulling furniture, designer goods in bid to command higher prices

Wed, 01 Oct 2014 08:44:00 EST

Brands like Porsche and Ferrari make a mint every year by selling branded lifestyle goods like shoes, hats and even wilder items. Bugatti takes things to the extremes with things like its $84,000 belt buckle. These products not only make their respective companies some extra money, but they reaffirm their high-end design aspirations to wealthy buyers. However, the next firm possibly dipping its toe into this upscale pool is a bit more mass-market - Mazda.
That's right. The Japanese automaker best known among enthusiasts for its segment-defining Miata and rotary engines is considering its own line of luxury goods in the coming years called Mazda Design. The project is the brainchild of styling boss Ikuo Maeda, and according to Automotive News, he has backing from company CEO Masamichi Kogai. Although the green light isn't quite on yet, Maeda is already brainstorming. "Not only furniture, but I'd like to build a Mazda Design brand. That's my dream," he said to Automotive News.
The possible project is just one aspect of Mazda's move to become a near-premium brand. According to Automotive News, it wants to see higher transaction prices partially by offering more stylish design than its rivals. Launching a line of luxury goods is meant to communicate this new focus to customers.

2016 Mazda CX-3 is a 2 cute ute

Tue, 18 Nov 2014 23:00:00 EST

One day removed from our latest round of spy photos, Mazda has finally lifted the veil on its 2016 CX-3 crossover, giving us our very first glimpse at the Mazda2-based entry into the rapidly expanding world of subcompact crossovers.
Mazda's KODO design language is once again on display, presenting some increasingly familiar styling touchstones including a five-point grille that integrates neatly with the front headlights to present an almost protruding snout that's both clean and complex. Like previous KODO designs, the CX-3's profile features swoopy character lines that highlight the wheel arches and a higher beltline. Mazda has cleverly chosen to black out the CX-3's D-pillar in favor of a floating roof look, a design decision that adds to the model's fashionable styling. It's the rear of the design that borrows most heavily from the Mazda2, largely in the shape of the headlights and rear hatch.
Globally, under that fashionable sheetmetal sits Mazda's 2.0-liter Skyactiv four-cylinder that can be mated to a six-speed manual or automatic. Unfortunately, in North America, it looks like we'll only get the automatic. Regardless of gearbox, power can be sent to an optional next-gen all-wheel-drive system that uses the active torque control system found on the Mazda CX-5. Like the Mazda2, front-drive is standard.

Mazda spiders return, 42k Mazda6 sedans recalled for webby fuel tanks

Sat, 05 Apr 2014 13:00:00 EST

It seems that Yellow Sac spiders really, really love Mazda. Three years after Mazda recalled 52,000 Mazda6 sedans over spider webs obstructing the evaporative canister vent lines of 2009 and 2010 Mazda6 models, another recall has been issued for 42,000 more of the models built between 2010 and 2012 and equipped with the 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine.
According to the automaker, there have been nine confirmed sightings of spiders in vent lines since the original recall. It seems that covers were applied at the factory to keep the arachnids from entering, but it hasn't quite exterminated the problem. A reflash of the ECU is required that "[changes] the logic behind how the car purges the charcoal canister during normal operation," says Jeremy Barnes, Director, Public Relations & Brand Experience at Mazda North American Operations.
So far, Mazda has not recorded any fires, accidents or injuries due to this tangled mess of webs. Recall notices will be mailed out to owners later this month. Scroll down below for the statement from Mazda, along with the official recall notice from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
