13 years and still running strong

1996 Mazda Protege DX 4dr Sedan


This car was purchased new. Current daily commute of 50 miles RT and mileage of 118K. Never garaged and live in Northeast so rust of exhaust system was a problem. Replaced exhaust pipes, then muffler over last two years. Underpowered, but very economical, still average 35+ MPG. Overall this has been an unbelievable good car.

Best Features

Fuel economy and reliability. True cost to own the lowest I have ever seen!!! Great basic car.

Worst Features

Lack of power, but it's a tradeoff for great mileage. Seats uncomfortable for long trips.
