1994 Mazda Protege DX 4dr Sedan


Bought little white auto Mazda Protege in Oct 94. Has been used regularly by wife and self. Consistently gets 30- 32 MPG; runs very strongly; given regular maintenance (oil & filter every 5000 mi)(air filters every 20000 mi) and major services per Mazda manual (ie, timing belt replacement, etc). No special help otherwise. It's a little limp on acceleration due to 100 HP and auto trans, but once you've got it moving, keeping your foot in it will help stay with the traffic (Miami expressways). Runs like a champ; next best pick after a Honda in my book. Just a nice basic car that is extremely dependable.

Best Features

Reliability, gas mileage, love the bucket seats (very supportive), car well built; paint still very nice and I do not garage this; overhead map/reading lights; auto seatbelts; fantastic headlights (really light up the road)

Worst Features

Lumbar support for bucket seats; better audio system and speakers; better gasketing around doors and windows
