1998 Mazda Protege LX 4dr Sedan
The only problem has been an annoying squeal from the rear shoe brakes - like finger nails scratching a chalkboard - cause - the shoes are glazed. The air conditioning has failed.
Great to drive - I have put 14000 miles on the car in 5 months - no problems - no complaints - Fun to drive.
The car is fun to drive - the suspension is tight - the steering is very responsive - the 5 speed transmission is crisp .
The car has little pep between 40 - 55 mph - Below these speeds it is very responsive - the gearing ratio or power curve are not correct for this speed range. Fred
