1991 Mazda Protege DX 1.8 SOHC 16v from North America
Bullet- Proof, Efficient, Fun to Drive
Distributor at 204000
Rear struts at 216000
Other than that nothing just maintenance.
This car is unbelievable, bullet-proof reliability. After 236000 still runs smooth and quiet. Can't even hear it idle. Gets 34-37 mpg and is comfortable even on cross country trips. Can cruise at 85 and feel like youre doing 40. It doesn't use any oil between changes, and only has a minor oil-leak from the pan gasket.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
