1996 Mazda Protege LX 4dr Sedan

Review

My Protege has over 163,000 miles and has had very few problems. Mileage has been 35+ MPG on the highway. The rear seat is roomy enough for my giant teenage boys. I expect this car to make it to 200,000 miles with no major problems.

Favorite Features

Fantastic reliability, roomy interior for such a small car, good gas mileage, nice controls.

Suggested Improvements

I wish it were quieter at interstate speeds. The cupholders are poorly placed - a tall cup can obscure the radio buttons. The air conditioner is weak, barely keeping up on really hot days.
