Protege... Reliable, but Needs Care

1998 Mazda Protege LX 4dr Sedan


As long as one follows the recommended severe service maintenance procedures and performs needed repairs before they become a problem, this little throw- away car is probably good for 150-200 K mi before an expensive repair makes repair an uneconomical choice. This has not been a maintenance-free car, but for it's price, it has shown good reliability when compared to most other makes. My wife drives this car all over the Dallas area and I find that I don't worry about her being stranded with this Protege.
