Great car, needs MORE POWER
By Bill Garrett on
Vehicle
1995 Mazda Protege LX 4dr Sedan
Review
We bought a used '95 LX with 33k miles in 1998 and have put 70k of our own on it since. We cross-shopped it against Corolla, Civic, and a few American cars. We selected the Mazda because it handled better than the Toyota, had more personality than the Honda, and seemed tighter than anything from Ford, Chrysler, or GM. Overall, it has been a great econo-compact car. I'm surprised there are so many Corollas and Civics on the road and so few Proteges.
Favorite Features
Excellent steering and chassis. Seats 4 full-size adults but still fits into tight parking spaces. Strong reliability and build quality -- only 1 manufacturing problem in 103k miles, which the dealer fixed for free under a factory TSB.
Suggested Improvements
Needs MORE POWER!! (ooh-ooh-ooh) Really, this car corners like a pocket rocket, it brakes like a pocket rocket, it just doesn't... rocket... like a pocket rocket.
