1995 Mazda Protege LX 4dr Sedan


Traded in a Nissan 200SX coupe several
years ago because we needed a 4-door
This car is geared so nicely (I have a
manual). The throws are just about
perfect for me. It doesn't sound as
labored in first gear as many other
compacts, and at highway speeds it
cruises like a dream. It's been super
reliable, with my only gripe being
with the brakes frequently getting
worn out (which may reflect on my
driving habits more than anything ;).
I turned over 100,000 miles recently,
and the oil change guys were
astonished at how low this car still
idles (sub-500 RPMs). Evidently,
that's a strong indication that the
engine is still in top-notch condition.

Best Features

The manual transmission. Perfect marriage of performance and fuel economy. Rock-solid reliability.

Worst Features

It does ride a little low. Thigh support is weak.
