Great car! Buy a Mazda! Love it!

2000 Mazda Protege ES

My Mazda protege has been a great car. It is a manual and that is one feature I really love. We bought it used back in 2004 and have maintained it pretty well over the years but it is a 20 year old car so we've replaced the clutch, the timing belt, and the catalytic converter in the time we've had it.

This car has great gas mileage.

2000 Mazda Protege ES

Good on gas, cheap to fix, easy to find parking if you live in a city. Very reliable and has very few or no problems at all. Has heat and air, power windows and locks. Has an alarm system. Good trunk space. Drives good on the highway. Gets about 25 miles to the gallon.
