Great little car

Vehicle: 1990 Mazda Protege LX 4dr Sedan

While the 1.8L DOHC is rated by Mazda at 125 horses, I am convinced that the output on this outstanding engine was at least 10 HP higher. With aggressive tires this car could give other more expensive sporty cars a run for their money. The fit and finish was superb inside and out. The trunk swallowed enormous amounts of luggage. The rear seating was not compromised by the spacious trunk. Very peppy acceleration.




Good car

Vehicle: 1990 Mazda Protege LX 4dr Sedan

This car has not only been my families car, but now belongs to me. We have kept up with the maintnence and it has lasted us this long and keeps on going! I will be selling it only because i want to buy a brand new car. I would recommend it to any parents looking for a first car for their teens!




Long term relationship

Vehicle: 1990 Mazda Protege LX 4dr Sedan

This is one of the best handling front drive cars that were built around this time. Bought it brand new, now with 208k. Very reliable, only one unscheduled trip to dealer in 14 years for transmission inhibitor switch. Automatic transmission not as strong as when new, but still feels pretty healthy. Plastic radiator tanks are a problem. Still have the original water pump, but I would change it every other timing belt change. This car gets great gas milage, has lots of features and convenience for a compact, adequate power, responsive brakes, and outstanding handling capability for its class.

1. Incorrect grade of fuel. The Protege calls for only 87 octane and that is what I use. I buy gas from different stations in the area....
