Fun, reliable car

2003 Mazda Protege5 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
First new car that I have ever purchased. I have enjoyed the sportiness of this car. Decent gas mileage. I've used this car for my personal use as well for work. I have only had to do one repair in the 5 years that I have owned it (replaced erg valve) other than general upkeep.
Styling, fun to drive, good handling, great sound system.
Tires are expensive and wear quickly, there are no shops that stock them so they have to be ordered.
