1994 Mazda Protege DX 4dr Sedan


I got a great deal when I bought
my '94 DX. It really took some abuse
as it was my pizza delivery car and
personal speed machine for 2 1/2
years. Pros aren't fast, but the
chassis, suspension, and low weight
make for fun driving. Interior space
and trunk room was voluminous for it's
size. If I packed it right, I could
fit over 60 XL pizzas in it! All this
at 40 mpg on the highway. Last, but
not least is safety. I learned this
the hard way, I hit a Mustang at 40
mph and it crushed the front of my
poor car, but my friend and I got out
with only sore necks. I'd buy one
again in a second after the experience
I've had with mine.

Best Features

-Great interior and trunk space for a small car -Great gas mileage -Reliable even after 150k miles -Good handling for fun driving

Worst Features

-With about 60-70 more horsepower, the car would've been near perfect -Lose the 13" wheels and tires and go for 15-16" rims, the difference is night and day
