1994 Mazda Protege DX 4dr Sedan
I bought the car for $400 from my dad with about 112K mi. Have had few problems with the car the automatic seatbelt on the drivers side didn't work when i got the car due to a bad wiring connection in the door jam. it wont pass MD emissions due to a bad catalytic converter. Very reliable car. Runs like a top. it has the 1.8 SOHC with the 5-speed trans. couple mods custom cold air intake, free flowing exhaust, short shifter. with a little tweaking of the fuel pressure regulator i got 40mpg. but it kills the performance. usually gets around 30- 35mpg. Ill never get rid of this car
love the gas mileage. fun to drive, roomy interior. great little car. i also love the wide range of RPMs red lines around 6000 rpms nice power band.
no power options with the DX package. could use a little more power. does not come with a tach had to install my own.
