It held up...but..

2000 Mazda Protege LX 4dr Sedan
This car held up. I bought it with 68,000 miles on it. While it held up it had terrible handling. And the noises it made were embarrassing and ridiculous. It constantly sounded like it was dying. I never had this car stall and I drove about 40 miles to and from work daily. But if your looking for a nice car that's going to be a quiet ride.. this isn't for you.
The stereo, very good sound quality. Easy of functions in car (cruise control, heating system, etc.)
A/c was terrible. Barely worked from the day I got it. Half of the time I felt cooler if I just put the windows down. No fun on the highway. Acceleration needs improvements too. If I had the A/c on and I wanted to drive on the highway at a decent speed? forget about it.
