1994 Mazda Protege DX 4dr Sedan


My parents bought this car for me when
I was a senior in high school and it
had 40000 miles. I am now out of
college and it has 108,000 miles and
still runs great. The problems I have
had are minimal: the seat belt light
goes off all the time, the
horn was worn and needed to be replaced
and the antifreeze was leaking and I
needed to replace the water pump (that
is a big chunk of change). But those
repairs are worth it because I have
abused it and I know it will be around
for at least 2 more years. Overall, it
was definitely a smart purchase on my
parent's part because it has been very
reliable and problems have been minor.

Best Features

Reliable, great gas mileage, Never a major problem.

Worst Features

It needs more pickup and it gets thrown around in the wind and makes a lot of noise from the windows in the wind. The seat belt beeping all the time needs to be remedied. It has been doing that since 2000 in my car.
