Protege High Mileage Club

2002 DX. 265000 miles. Purchased new. Manual transmission. All original except tires, battery. brakes,timing/alternator belt, O2 sensor. Replaced timing belt for the first time at 210K, looked basically new. Had the valve covers off at 200K and the engine looked pristine. Have only ever used Mobile 1 full synthetic. This car just starts and runs, virtually trouble free, every time I drive it
Blue MP3, Grey MSP
2003 MSP. 423,000 kilometers (262,800 miles). Original engine, turbo, transmission, differential, WGA... Still runs perfect. Synthetic oil every 5000km or less. Only non-typical maintenance item that failed was the radiator just cracking recently.
I have a 2002 Protege5... 289,000 miles... First try it doesn't do anything, starts on 2nd try almost every time... I've put some work into it since purchasing about a 2 years ago at around 270k miles...
