Great car with wonderful gas mileage and lovable bells and whistles

2002 Mazda Protege LX

My Mazda is a great reliable car. It's very comfortable seats and I love the sunroof. The gas mileage is astonishing as 34 miles per gallon. Performance is wonderful. The only flaw is that parts are a little more expensive than some other cars, which is expected when purchasing foreign make automobiles rather than American makes.

4 doors coupe engine transmission great . Low on gas.

2002 Mazda Protege LX

Runs very good. Never had a major problem. With this car its relatively small vehicle . So for someone big it could be uncomfortable . Made on 150. 000 mil so far and just cannot say bad. Ward about it.I services the car every 3000 miles. No major repairs I could recommend this car to anyone any day.

Reliable vehicle with lots of space and large trunk.

2002 Mazda Protege LX

This vehicle is very reliable for driving to and from work and around town. The vehicle was riding rough for a while turned out that the tire pressure was low. Since that has been resolved it rides like a dream for a car of this age. Has low miles and more power than expected.
