1994 Mazda Protege LX 4 cylinder. from North America
Not a bad car but some major repairs
Air conditioner compressor.
Electric seat belt motor.
Electric window motor.
I just bought the car about 5 months ago from an individual. When I purchased this vehicle there was a rattling noise coming from the dash every time I pressed the A/C button. I found out that the compressor is going out. It has not gone out yet, but it doesn't run cold air unless I'm driving.
The electric seat belt motor has gone out. The belts are stuck in the correct position, so I have to lift it up and get under it every time I get into the car.
The electric window motor is going to go out. The windows are rolling up slower and slower every day.
UV joints are in need of repair. Every time I make a left hand turn there is a horrible rattling noise coming out from under the car.
Other than that, I would say that this car was a little less fortunate than the others, but it has severed me well. I love the pick up it has for such a small engine. I like the gas mileage. The handling is great. I just wish that it was in better health.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
