great car!

1992 Mazda Protege DX 4dr Sedan


This was my first new car, with a $2500 rebate, it only cost me $9200. I drove it like mad for 7 years and 135k. It never used a drop of oil (synthetic from 30k on) and all I changed were spark plugs, tires and fluids. I got 38mpg on the highway. Fold-down rear seat fit all my snowbard gear. The problems were minor: Paint (Tropical Green) that chipped far too easily (dealer said it was stone chips...On the trunk!?). Those damned automatic belts! The seatbelt warning started going off at random times- I am always belted. Someone got a gem when I traded for a Dodge Ram 4x4.

Best Features

Handling, reliability, fuel mileage, roominess, utility.

Worst Features

Get rid of automatic seatbelts! Better (green) paint.
