1997 Mazda Protege Sedan ES 4dr Sedan


Review

We bought this car to "drive the wheels off". We have put few dollars into the car(brakes, emission system) and it still runs great and gets 31 MPG around town. This isn't a car for long trips with the family, but it does what we want it to a low cost.


Best Features

This car came loaded with extras which make it well worth the price.


Worst Features

Sound insulation, tinted glass.

Review

IF ALL THE PEOPLE THAT BOUGHT LX
MODELS AND SAID THEY
WERE "UNDERPOWERED" , WHY DIDN'T THEY
BUY THE ES MODEL WITH THE BIGGER
MOTOR ?? I BOUGHT AN ES MODEL WHICH
NOW HAS 210,000 MILES ON IT AS OF JUNE
OF 2004, AND IT STILL GETS UP AND GOES
JUST LIKE IT DID WHEN IT WAS NEW. I
WOULD DEFINITELY BUY ANOTHER ONE.
MAYBE MAZDA HEARD THE COMPLAINTS ABOUT
POWER, I BELIEVE THE 2004 MODELS HAVE
A 2.2 LITER MOTOR IN THEM ....


Best Features

FUN CAR TO DRIVE !! RROMY ON THE INSIDE FOR A SMALL CAR. RIDES LIKE A BIGGER CAR. GOOD GAS MILEAGE.


Worst Features

BUY A MANUAL TRANNY .. THE AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION PROTEGE'S AREN'T NEARLY AS FUN TO DRIVE, AND THE TRANNY WON'T LAST NEARLY AS LONG
