2003 Mazda Protege 5 2.0 gas from North America
Great handling, styling, reliable, economical car at a low price
Nail through tire.
Excellent car, especially for the price ($13,900 new). This car handles very well. The brakes work great. The engine is a bit noisy and underpowered. The fuel economy is good, 30-32 mpg. It is the best handling, sharpest car I've found for the money. I am very happy with the car. I only have 21,000 miles, but it seems like a reliable car. I much prefer it to my '94 Jetta GLX.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
