1995 Mazda Protege LX 4dr Sedan

Review

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.

Favorite Features

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

Suggested Improvements

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