Should I buy this 2002 Mazda B3000?
Want to buy used 2002 Mazda B3000 dual sport 3.0-L V-6 OHV 16V manual RWD with 50,250 miles from dealership
I want to buy the above vehicle from a local dealership. They are charging $13,400. I reviewed the CarFax report which shows 1 owner and the following

Are these a part of the routine maintenance schedule? Or does this much work suggest something is wrong and that's why it has such low mileage? How much would you pay for it? $13,300 sounds way above market price. In my search for a Mazda B series truck I've been seeing a lot of Mazda B series trucks with such low mileage for a 10 year truck (why?)
Can't say thank you enough!
It seems expensive for a truck that age even if all that work was really done. Seals and rubber components degrade over time regardless of mileage. Cars are made to be driven not stored. The B3000 is made by Ford. It's a rebadged Ranger not a true Mazda but still a good truck. Don't hesitate to look at Rangers.
that's about $10000 too much IMO
A 20 year old truck with 50K miles - LIE.
Coming from a dealer - LIE.
