A really Great Little Car
By TMoon on


1991 Mazda Protege LX 4dr Sedan


In the 80's, Mazda offered the GLC:
Great Little Car. But my '91 Protege
has that one beat! I've driven it for
12 years/168,000 miles. Yes, it's
needed some major repairs (manual
xmission, brakes, head gasket), but
nothing else has gone wrong with it.
And, it's more fun to drive than many
so-called "sports" cars. Great
handling; wonderful sounding engine.
Fairly comfy seats. Good ergonomics.
Can't beat it!

Best Features

The DOHC engine, above all: sweet- sounding; responsive above 2,500 rpm; reliable as the day is long. The manual transmission and shift linkage: solid, positive, easy.

Worst Features

A little more low-end grunt, if you please. Engine comes on strongly above 2,500 rpm, but has little pull below that.
