It's a good car with very little drawbacks

2003 Mazda Protege MAZDASPEED

I've had the car for roughly 8 years now and I never have had any major problems. More recently I've been forced to do maintenance that's a bit pricey but that's due to the car being so old. My biggest complaint is that the car is a little bit slow with its acceleration. The seats are comfortable but when it gets hot I feel like the inside of the car feels significantly hotter than other cars. It has enough space for 4 people to fit comfortably but can ultimately fit 5. Overall it's a good car and has lasted a pretty long time without having major issues or problems.
