2001 Mazda Protege LX - Minor Problems
By kevin111 on


2001 Mazda Protege LX 4dr Sedan (1.6L 4cyl 5M)


Quality compact with excellent fuel mileage. 35 mpg on a trip with automatic and the air on. Overdrive sips gas. Tight build quality. Great handling. Impressive interior room. Stylish exterior design. Relatively quiet except when engine is pushed. Very compliant ride. Quality car but Toyota Corolla or Honda Civic might be better.

Best Features

4 speed automatic with overdrive. Fuel mileage. Handling. Superb visibility.

Worst Features

Fasteners corrode too quickly. Seats are a bit too firm causing sore legs on long trips. Driver side rear power door lock failed at 61,000 miles. A/C fan very noisy when cycling. Brakes could be of higher quality. Steering wheel needs more turns lock to lock. Better interior lighting.
