1990 Mazda Protege - Consumer Discussions

All Mazda Protege Models

My family bought and still own the first year model of a new Mazda Protege 1990 with GT trim level....
Corolla its not winning any young buyers. On the Protege the Protege has never had the attention of young buyers like the Civic has had in the past. Not alot of young people bought the Protege(1990-1...
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....
1990 Protege's 1.8 engine has no relation to the current 2.0L. It's actually more related to the Miata's 1.8, if I recall correctly......
I've been a fan of the handling Mazda offers within the compact commuter class since the Protege of the 1990s. This iteration of the 3 has handsome sheet metal and a classier looking dash than the cur...
I made a mistake before: The Protege nameplate came put in 1990 not 1995. The 1st generation Protege debut for the 1990 model year....

I remember having a similar problem on my 1991 Ford Escort GT. The 1991-1995 Escorts were built on the Protege chassis, but used Ford engines except for the GT. The GT's used Mazda's wonderful 1.8L ...
Most people don't realize exactly how fun the Protege is until after they own one. At least, that's been my observation. They're wicked fun :-)...
1992 Protege LX: 28,000 miles, no problems...
I believe there's people running around driving Proteges without problems for years...I knew 2 people with 1990 Proteges that have had zero problems with them. One was even in an accident and all beat...
As for why there is no cruise, I don't know. Ever since the first "factory tuned" Mazda that came out (Protege MP3), Mazda has not had cruise control. The MSP didn't have it, and now the M...
Except MX-3, 323, Protege and Millenia...
