The first 2 years I owned it (1998-
2000), I had virtually no problems.
But these last 2 years, I have had
several replacements including brake
pads, brake calipers, struts, CV boots,
water pump, engine timing belt,
muffler, & battery (my fault on the
battery; killed it too many times).
This week I'm getting the fuel filter
It has about 220,000 KM (140,000
miles). Other reviewers have given
their Proteges glowing endorsements,
but I cannot say the same for mine.
Peformance & mileage is great, but the
repairs are sucking me dry.
