1996 Mazda Protege DX 4dr Sedan


My Dad bought this car brand new and crashed it the same year - body damage only. He gave it to me in 2006 with 84k miles on. Runs excellent. Top marks for fuel efficiency. Nimble handling for a basic car. Tires hug the roads. Very roomy compared to the competition, about the same as my '94 Accord. Shifts very well. Get the five speed to the get the most out of the engine's power and economy. All in all, it is a great first car or a commuter car.

Best Features

Rather elegant design for its class. Very roomy. Excellent gas mileage. Nice and simple interior layout.

Worst Features

Slightly stronger build. More standard features.
