2001 Mazda Protege LX 4dr Sedan (1.6L 4cyl 5M)

Review

Quality car, with great handling, solid build quality and lots of interior room. Handles like a $25000 sports car. This is a reliable car with great mpg. Problems include constant idle shake, LR power lock went at 65000 miles All 4 suspension links failed around 80000 miles. Come on Mazda! Suspension is also a bit jostly on bumps. Seats are also uncomfortable on long trips. Trunk is too small.

Favorite Features

Handling, fuel economy, interior room, build quality.

Suggested Improvements

Suspension links, power locks, bigger trunk, slight improvement in corrosion protection (fasteners).
