1997 Mazda Protege Sedan DX 4dr Sedan


Review

I've driven this car all over the country, literally. Performs adequately, not powerful at all but extrememly reliable. The gas mileage is great (39ish on the highways). Overall, nothing special, but a good car to own.


Best Features

Gas mileage, lack of major work


Worst Features

For the car it's meant to be, nothing much

Review

This is the very first car I have ever bought and paid for myself - and it is worth every penny. Of course I make sure I keep up with all of my scheduled maintenance - this car will be with me for a long time!


Best Features

Little car with a big heart!


Worst Features

Little more power would be nice

Review

Bought the car used in 2001 @ 30,000kms. replaced the exhaust @150k kms, windshield wiper connecting rod needed to be replaced after using wipers in heavy rain (cheap plastic; the bill was almost $300!!!!!). Besides that, never any major problems. Excellent mileage


Best Features

Good on gas, plenty of room in front and back seats. Lots of trunk space.


Worst Features

Bigger cup holders, better quality wiper mechanism. A little more acceleration wouldn't hurt.

Review

I love driving this car! I have a 1.5 liter engine, and with a standard it has plenty of pick-up. It shifts like a dream, one of the easiest I've encountered. I'm over 100,000 miles and have never had any major problems with my car. I'll definitely but Mazda again!


Best Features

Smooth transmission. Dependability. Comfortable seats. Good gas mileage.


Worst Features

Make the cup holders bigger!
