Mazda protege 2002 - It was Mazda under Ford. The engine oil rusted pan already replaced and trans fluid pan rusted and sipping trans fluid. It is also rusting around rear wheel well area. I replaced two alternators, Exhaust front pipe. The exhaust supports and flanges+bolts are already rusted. In short car is running fine but heavy rust started after first 5 years.
