2003 Mazda Protege LX 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
I bought this car with 29,000 miles on it. That was 3 years ago. It now has 90,000 miles on it. It has only had problem after problem - battery, multiple wheel bearings, tire links, brakes, alternator. The alignment is easily messed up. The car is not well made - it's cheap, lightweight and already starting to rust. It's a money pit. Do not buy it!
Oh, and my Mazda is the automatic, not 5-speed standard.
