1999 Mazda Protege LX from North America
Love the car, incredibly reliable
Valve cover gasket replaced at 150,000 miles.
CD replaced three times under warranty; never worked longer than 10,000 miles.
The hubcaps all came off a while ago; they were cheap and just fell off at some point.
Car is extremely reliable, runs like it will never quit after 170,000 miles.
Seats are comfy, which matters a lot since I have back problems. Love the moonroof.
MPG are still very good after 11 years.
It has a roomy trunk, big enough to transport son's hockey gear and several sizeable items from Home Depot (Not the hot water heater, though!)
It started off having great acceleration, which faded after about 40,000 miles.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
