1994 Mazda Protege DX 4dr Sedan


I got this for my daughter at the beginning of 11th grade (who is now a frosh in college). $2K. It had 85K (now 101K). Came with a new clutch, custom alloys and new Yoko's, 4 good mounted snow's, Thule rack, new axles,custom stereo/CD (even this geezer is impresed), new brakes all around, K&N filter, factory manual (big 3-ring binder, factory wiring book, and lots more. Extremely reliable. Could use more low end torque, but is still fun to drive. Uses no oil. All I've had to do was replace front struts last July. Otherwise, it just keeps on ticking. Great car, maybe my next one will be a Mazda.

Best Features

Reliability. Fun to drive.

Worst Features

Needs more torque. Could use a couple more MPG.
