1992 Mazda Protege DX 4dr Sedan


Gets you from point A to Point B. I have had to replace the clutch, the whole exhaust, CV joints, radiator. So the whole cost of ownership is not too low either. But it has never let me down, starts in 30 below weather without being driven for over 30 days at a time. the automatic seatbelt starts to beep on mine as well, and the paint in the trunk peeled as well, seems like a very common thing for this car over 11 years. Things seems to start to break apart, and the handling starts to worry me, so I am selling the car. Decent resale values too. the car also has a leaky gasket, so a little oil leak on the engine

Best Features

Gas milege, I have the same experience as others getting as high as 36+ mpg with AC on. Reliable, never left me down or stranded on the road, and the private map lights are one the the best.

Worst Features

Bigger engine but same gas mileage, better sound insulation, more comfortable seats.
