Great little car
By Pete on


1999 Mazda Protege LX 4dr Sedan


I have always been a truck person, but bought this car to limit my annual mileage on my truck. This has been a great car that I bought cheaply with 87K on it. I changed the timing belt, and change the oil every 6K with synthetic. I now have 143K on it, and it runs better than when I bought it. I use it like a truck, and even have hauled my jetski with it. It just has a little trouble pulling it out of the lake but manages. It gets between 30 and 34 MPG with a mix of freeway and town driving. It's not the fastest for sure, but it is sufficient, except on big hills.

Best Features

The gas mileage and trunk space are my favorite features.

Worst Features

Yes, it is a bit noisy on the freeway, but what do you expect for such a cheap car? Ok, maybe try to reduce that a little bit.
