1996 Mazda Protege DX 4dr Sedan

Review

This car was purchased new. Current daily commute of 50 miles RT and mileage of 118K. Never garaged and live in Northeast so rust of exhaust system was a problem. Replaced exhaust pipes, then muffler over last two years. Underpowered, but very economical, still average 35+ MPG. Overall this has been an unbelievable good car.

Favorite Features

Fuel economy and reliability. True cost to own the lowest I have ever seen!!! Great basic car.

Suggested Improvements

Lack of power, but it's a tradeoff for great mileage. Seats uncomfortable for long trips.
