ReviewI had hoped that the good looks and
performance of the Protege would be
matched by Japanese reliability. No
such luck. Had to replace engine (rod
bearing)at 80k. Transmission repair at
81k. Have done rear brakes 3 times and
rear links twice already - fronts once.
(@ 94k now)Strut failed at 85k. Dealer
and Mazda have both avoided any/all
responsibility for problems...even
while under warranty. Very
Best FeaturesTight suspension, strong braking, nice seats and interior for econo box.
Worst Featuresreliability! Better engine, gearbox.
