2001 Mazda Protege ES 2.0 2.0L 4 cylinder from North America
Hunk of junk
At 40,000 km the automatic transmission went. The brakes wore prematurely at 30,000km. The head gasket blew, cracked cylinder head at 120,000km and the replaced transmission blew again last week.
Horrible reliability... wondering if I got a lemon. To the cars defence, between 40,000 and 120,000kms I had no problems.. just when I DO have problems..They're big ones!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
