1993 Mazda Protege DX 4dr Sedan


I bought it with 119,000K and now have 147,000K in nearly 4 years. Do the math and see that many people do that in just one year. With such low mileage, I expect the muffler to rust out at least every 18 months (as any car would, under the same conditions) And the engine is starting to 'sweat' a little oil, giving the car a constant burned-oil smell. My wife has left the lights on a few times, but a boost brings this old timer right back to life. When I need it, this car gets me there... and gets me back!

Best Features

Back seats fold down giving lots of versatility to haul stuff. Not exactly a hatch back, but almost as handy.

Worst Features

the previous owner put in a cheap radio with only front speakers. Give me a CD player with a nice sound system, and I'll get another 10 years out of this pack animal.
