Great car, needs MORE POWER
By Bill Garrett on
Vehicle1995 Mazda Protege LX 4dr Sedan
ReviewWe bought a used '95 LX with 33k miles
in 1998 and have put 70k of our own on
it since. We cross-shopped it against
Corolla, Civic, and a few American
cars. We selected the Mazda because
it handled better than the Toyota, had
more personality than the Honda, and
seemed tighter than anything from
Ford, Chrysler, or GM. Overall, it
has been a great econo-compact car.
I'm surprised there are so many
Corollas and Civics on the road and so
Best FeaturesExcellent steering and chassis. Seats 4 full-size adults but still fits into tight parking spaces. Strong reliability and build quality -- only 1 manufacturing problem in 103k miles, which the dealer fixed for free under a factory TSB.
Worst FeaturesNeeds MORE POWER!! (ooh-ooh-ooh) Really, this car corners like a pocket rocket, it brakes like a pocket rocket, it just doesn't... rocket... like a pocket rocket.
