Nickle-and-Diming Me to Death

1992 Mazda Protege DX 4dr Sedan


The PLASTIC radiator blew up three
summers ago (2001); I have had
nothing but problems since then--I've
since replaced the radiator, head
gasket (twice, I think) timing belt
(expected...once... I've had to replace
it twice in less than two years. No one
can figure out why it keeps
shredding/coming off.), water pump,
thermostat, A/C switch and housing,
compressor, etc. I CAN'T WAIT 'til I
can afford to get another NEW car. I
plan to never buy Mazda again, nor an
older used car, even though this one
was only 6.5 years old when I bought
it, with 57K miles. It's now at only
107K miles.
