1999 Mazda Protege LX 1.6 from North America
Reliable and economical transportation
Replaced tires at 40,000 and 85,000 miles.
The CD player quit working at 60,000 miles.
Replaced battery at 70,000 miles.
Replaced the rubber air intake hose between the manifold and radiator that cracked at 80,000 miles to resolve intermittent misses and and loss of power under load.
This Protege has been a good car.
Gets good mileage.
Very little spent on maintenance.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
