2003 Mazda Protege LX 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

Review

I bought the LX 2.0 in 2007 with 60,000 K's on it. About 8 months later, anytime it rainied either overnight or in the day the car was parked, when I started up the car it would shake and sputter then the engine light would flash and then stay on. Oh and the big hit was when the transmission went on the car from a worn seal that probably costs .25 cents, it ended up costing me $2000.00 to get fixed and this was in April 2009 with about 98,000 kms on it. A friend has a Mazda Tribute and was having the same problems when it rains, it shakes and sputters. NEVER WILL I BUY A MAZDA PRODUCT AGAIN

Favorite Features

Nice Laser blue car, got lots of looks for it's exterior, nice factory sound system, good fuel.

Suggested Improvements

I have read reviews and everyone says they love their Protege, well maybe I just got a lemon off the assembly line but it cost me alot in repairs. No more Mazdas for me
