Very Dependable Field Car
By wolfbear9 on
2000 Mazda Protege LX 4dr Sedan
I have had this car for over 3years now
and have 72000 miles on it. I drive 100
miles + per day for work and have only
had this car in the shop for front
brakes and oil changes.Wipers and rear
brake lamps are the only maintenance I
have had to perform on this car.I did
purchase an extended warranty 7 years or
100k miles but have never had to use it.
35mpg with a/c & automatic trans. Trunk
space is good and stereo sounds good.
Very low cost of operation vehicle.
Very zippy car, fits in most "compact"
parking lots with very good
manueverability. Has very responsive
steering, and good brakes.I get lots of
great comments on its outside appearance.
If you are looking for a hot rod this
car isnt it. A larger gas tank capacity
would be nice, 13.2 gallons is kinda
small. keyless entry would be a bonus,
wasnt avail on the 2000 models.
