Reliable basic vehicle for long term use.
2001 Mazda Protege
The vehicle has held up enormously well over many years. It is reliable. I have had to replace the air conditioning system and the radiator as well as several tubes and fuses, and now 18 years later the transmission mounts are shot. However it still functions well. It is comfortable but not fancy, and does not have automatic features such as door locks or windows. It is a great vehicle for transportation purposes.
