1998 Mazda Protege LX has been my best
used car purchase ever. I got a great
deal on a clean model and other than
changing the timing belt as a
preventative maintenance item, I have
had no expenses other than gas and
oil. Smooth ride, adequate performance
(even with the 4-speed auto), and good
handling have made me a happy owner.
LX model includes A/C, cruise control,
tilt wheel, CD player, power windows,
locks, and mirrors - all standard and
all work flawlessly.
A tad more power, which has been added
to later models, would be nice.
