1998 Mazda Protege ES 4dr Sedan

Review

The car has been very reliable as others have mentioned, however this is transportation at it's most basic level. This car is a noisy tin can on wheels. Radio must be cranked in order to overcome excessive road noise. Car lacks power even with the larger 1.8L engine and is really not that great on gas. I rarely take it on highways and my wife refuses to drive it at all because of the "Tin Can" feel. With that said, it is a reliable beater for local commutes but would not take this car on long trips.

Favorite Features

Dependability, smooth running 4 cylinder

Suggested Improvements

Improve body panels and insulation. Improve power and gas mileage. Improve interior material quality.
