I got my Mazda off a used car lot, she was my first car, from the start she needed a little help(80,000 miles), new tires, alignment, and a throttle body to keep the idle in check. She ran like a new car, getting 28-30 mpg, when the model is estimated to have 25mpg, smooth and easy to handle, perfect for a beginner driver. She came with those silly low profile "summer" tires, and since winter in Ohio was coming they had to go, the tiny wheel size was very limiting in what brands and types of tires I could get, but ended up with mid-grade "Wal-Mart tires" with a full warranty, and they were a huge help when the snow started to come down. Had to get the alignment done, cause I noticed the steering wheel wasn't straight anymore, turned out my tie rod was busted, a trip to the garage rev... (more)
Story
Driving around to familiarize myself with my new neighborhood after moving. I thought it might be nice to do a little driving around, the road through the apartments is connected to a park system, and back to the main road. I make a slightly wrong turn and end up inside the actual park, and get pulled over by a very tired ranger, who I had to ask directions for to get back to the main road and... (more)
Pros
My top pros for MY car was that it got higher gas mileage than it was "supposed" to. Due to how small it is, it's VERY maneuverable, light enough to turn easily, and accelerate up to traffic/merging speeds, and on the equally important stopping speed was impressive, always confident it will STOP when I need it to.
Cons
I don't like how tiny the wheels are, while I had brand new tires that had great traction in snow and slush, anything deeper than a few inches and I was STUCK, and I definitely did not like how the doors don't automatically un-lock if you're trying to open them from the inside, I've always felt that could end up being a safety issue in an accident, if the locks nib got stuck down it wont pop open just from the handle being pulled on.

The car gets some 40 MPG and I drive a lot, so this is number one in my book. Repairs are not too bad either. The parts are reasonably priced and I can do a lot of the work myself.
Story
I found this car by accident one day. I was not even looking for another car but it was way too good a deal to pass up.
Pros
Good MPG easy to fix things too.
Cons
The car is small

2000 Mazda Protege - Great car. I have no complaints.

I really liked the gas mileage. There are a lot better options these days though. But for a 20-year-old car, it did great on gas. I did not have to repair the car often. When I did, the costs were reasonable. All the tires for it are all-weather tires, which are better. A negative about the car is its size. its on the smaller size, so there's not a lot you can do with it. We have owned our 2000 LX with auto transmission for 14 years and 227,800 miles. Other than a new ECM about eight years ago, we have only completed oil changes every 3k miles and the occasional brake job (all completed by me). At 225,000 miles, I decided it was time to replace the original timing belt (which, believe it or not, didn't look too bad). At that time I also replaced the following: valve cover seal, spark ...

Pros
