2003 Mazda Protege5 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

Review

I bought the car 4 years ago. Recently, the engine started making a loud sound and it seems that it may cost me over $1200 to repair it (with only 86,000 miles on the engine). I was hoping to keep the car longer. At this level not sure if I'm willing to spend that much money on a car that's only 4 years old. What would happen in few months if I fix the car! Would it brake again! This is a major maintenance for a car this new. So I would have to say that Mazda Protege5 is not a reliable car or I'm an unlucky guy! I hope my comments helped.

Favorite Features

Nicer interior than the Toyota Matrix or Honda Civic. Not as much plastic look in it.

Suggested Improvements

More engine power or make it quietter.
