Reliability Problems!

Vehicle
2001 Mazda Protege ES 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
Review
I had hoped that the good looks and performance of the Protege would be matched by Japanese reliability. No such luck. Had to replace engine (rod bearing)at 80k. Transmission repair at 81k. Have done rear brakes 3 times and rear links twice already - fronts once. (@ 94k now)Strut failed at 85k. Dealer and Mazda have both avoided any/all responsibility for problems...even while under warranty. Very dissappointing purchase.
Favorite Features
Tight suspension, strong braking, nice seats and interior for econo box.
Suggested Improvements
reliability! Better engine, gearbox.
