I bought my 5 speed '93 protege in
winter 2000 @ 135,000 miles for $1500
with some exterior paint damages. i
thought it was too high miles & took
the risk, totally based on what the
previous first owner told me, since i
trusted him! had some fixing like fan
belt, brakes & mufflers done besides
regular 3500 mile oil change.
but i am still driving it with 177,000
miles now. i would recommend to anyone
to buy a used mazda protege, probably
the best alternative to honda & toyota
i can think off!!!
this car is fabulous. great handling,
fun to drive with 5 speed & great fuel
economy 28 mpg mixed @ 177K miles!!
