High quality, low price

2002 Mazda Protege DX 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
This is a reliable car! I've had this car for 7 years and have put 120,000 miles on it and I've never needed to get any repairs done. If you look at this car, there's nothing about it that would make you say "wow that's cool!" but it's reliable, spacious, handles well, comfortable, efficient, affordable, has good mpg, and when a friend spilled a slurpee on my fabric seats I discovered that they're stain resistant. A S2000 owner drove my car once and said "wow this little car handles well!"
The DX version does not have automatic door locks or windows. It sure would be nice to have those!
