1990 Mazda Protege 4 Dr LX Sedan Review

I Love It. — A very solid, depandable, basic car that could be amazing with some modifications. It won't die no matter how poorly you treat it. Excellent fuel economy, and the DOHC engine has lots of potential. Stiffen up the suspension, widen the tires, turbo charge it, and you're set.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fuel economy, size, dependability.

Cons: Isn't amazing right out of the factory, small cargo/ passenger space

1990 Mazda Protege 4 Dr LX Sedan Review

Great Car — Bought it as a winter beater. I was so impressed I drove it all year round. Surprisingly good performance, excellent mileage and comfortable to drive. Considering I bought it with 250K km on it, a great deal.

Pros: Mileage, comfortable, good drive

Cons: none
