Longes lasting car I owned

by Vitaly from Bellingham WA on Fri Apr 20 2007

Truthfuly, I thought the mazda was like an everyday car but when my 94 protege hit 240,000 miles with only minor tuneups and new water pump I was really surpised. The motor doesn't take any oil an it gets about 33-35 to a gallon. I had nissans, toyota's, an honda's but this car lasted the longest. It's a good deal for the money especially for driving to work an school an not worrying about expenses. Every monring I wake up I know it's gonna start.

Very Reliable

by Mazda Owner from Smyrna, GA on Tue Jun 03 2014

I've driven this car for the last 13 years. I received it while in high school and I still drive this car everyday. It currently has 320k miles. Little maintenance is required. No major work has been done. (knock on wood).

I absolutely love this car

by Mazda owner from Arkansas on Tue Jan 29 2008

I am 22 years old and I own a 1994 Mazda Protege LX. I can truly say that this car takes me everywhere I need to go and it's great on mileage. I plan on keeping this car forever.

Our Take on the 1994 Mazda Protege

Mazda's 1995 Protege brings the subcompact gene pool to its saturation point.

Now we have stylish cab-forward designs in pint size (Chrysler's Neon), smug little cars with dual air bags (Ford Aspire), shrunken sedans delivering motorcycle mileage of 56 m.p.g. (Honda Civic), four-door toys with anti-lock brakes (Toyota Corolla), spunky wheels modified for weekend club racing (Neon again),and a full flea circus of tykes with sun roofs and CDs, leather upholstery and alloy wheels, and all the power and remote controls of grown-up autos.

There aren't many duds in the litter. Kia's Sephia--with mechanical seat belts and the look of a 1988 rerun--might be a questionable place to spend hard-earned money... Read More
