Don't Get One
By historiker33 on
2003 Mazda Protege LX 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
In 2 years, Ive gone through:
2 wheel bearings
$900 valve job
Heres the bad thing, and BE ADVISED:
A valve job on these cars will often result in the piston rings going bad; this happened to me.
There is no easy fix for this - the car needs a new engine and smokes like crazy.
The newest versions of these cars are now 13 years old.
Do not buy one
