A Car That Makes Sense
By Jeremy P. on


1997 Mazda Protege LX 4dr Sedan


Not only does the car have highly
functional dash, it also is visually
pleasing... The Protege doesn't seem
like your regular cookie-cutter small
car... The tiny 1.5L engine is capable,
and sometimes suprising with the 5-
speed manual... The back seat has good
leg room and the trunk is rather large.
I have owned this car for a year, put
20,000 miles on it, and have had no
major repairs... any repairs needed
were easily done within 5 to 10
minutes... Consider the LX or the
slightly more expensive ES over the DX
