Best Bang for the Buck!
By nyminutes on


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


Fun to drive, well made car with
vroom , thats less than $15k.
Get the 5 speed, very smooth.
The handling on this car is excellent,
better than many sports sedans selling
for 25k+!
The fit finish/reliability is better
than any JapanMexOhiocan from Honda,
Nissan or Toyota. Lets face it, how
many older 1's of those do u see out
there lately???
You still see many older Protege's
though, still made in Hiroshima by
workers whos average tenure with the
company is 21 years!

The only downside to the car is resale
value, but if u want a great car, that
u can beat on trouble-free for 100k+
miles, this is the car.

Best Features

Handling, 5 speed is silky smooth, 3yr/50k warranty

Worst Features

More horsepower, clear tailight lens option
