185,000 Miles and Still Going
By WeatherNinja on
1993 Mazda Protege DX 4dr Sedan
I bought it brand new in June of 1993
and never had a single regret. The
only mechanical work was new CV boots &
joints at 150,000 miles and all new
seals in the upper half of the engine
at 175,000 miles. I've kept the oil
changed between 3,000 and 4,000 miles
and kept the engine tuned up. I've got
the 5-speed and it's still working on
the original clutch. I get 40 miles to
the gallon on the highway and I drive
it 80 miles to and from work each day.
I've got my $8,000 worth.
