1994 Mazda Protege DX 4dr Sedan
Bought this car almost-new in 1994 with about 13,000 miles on it; now have 192,000. Aside from frequent brake work and multiple A/C repairs, it has not needed major repairs, just what one would expect on a car with this many miles. Still gets over 25 miles a gallon. I hate the thought of parting with it but now that my teenager is going to start driving we really need something with airbags.
Zippy and fun. Extremely versatile. Good cargo space in the trunk; many, many good road trips!
