fun car!

1997 Mazda Protege DX 4dr Sedan

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!

The 1.5 liter, what a mistake!

1997 Mazda Protege LX 4dr Sedan

Review

Its a good all around car, but its not an enthuesiasts car, at least with 1.5 liter it isnt. It has the most body roll for a car its size, I know of SUVs with less lean. But its very reliable and well appointed. If you get this car, a 2nd generation Protege with very slow 92 horspower engine, at least get a 5 speed to entertain your self.

Review

This car has performed well---good balance between cost,style, economy,and comfort. Good AC-needed here in South Texas all year. Good value. Some irritating problems after 100000 miles, nothing major. Will buy a Mazda again.

Very Bumpy Ride

Review

I was very dissapointed with this car. Pick up is horrendus. Sometimes I am afraid to make a left hand turn into a busy intersection, for fear the car won't make it. I am looking forward to getting rid of this vehichle.

Reliable and Good Gas Mileage

1997 Mazda Protege LX 4dr Sedan

Review

I own both a 97 and 98 Protégé. Both have been very dependable. I would recommend this car if you are looking for something that is inexpensive, reliable and provides good gas mileage. Both of my cars are LXs, which are somewhat sporty looking, but this is definitely not the car to buy if you are looking for performance.
