Vehicle1990 Mazda Protege LX 4dr Sedan
ReviewThis 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.
Best FeaturesHandling, performance, reliability
Worst FeaturesIf you can find them, I would get 195/55/14 tires to fit the stock rims.
