The owners manual on my 2001 protege LX 2.0 says not to tow with the vehicle. I would imagine a car with the same chasis and a smaller engine would have the same instructions. It is not usually a good idea to tow much with a front wheel drive vehicle regardless. That is what manufacturers want to make you believe in North America - that you should not tow anything with a 4-cilinder, compact car. They recommend you to buy their SUV or van. In Europe the same manufacturers publish towing rating for small cars - and that is one of the reasons why Europe doesn't have so many gas guzzlers. A rule of thumb is that you can tow about 50% of your vehicle weight. I wouldn't go that far but probably 30% is a safe bet. If you tow frequently, you will probably shorten a little bit the life of your engine and transmission. HiddenHitch offers a hitch Class I for Mazda Protege - check their specs. I am towing a 14" boat, 10hp engine, with my other car - a Suzuki Esteem Wagon (1.8L just like the Mazda) - about 500 pounds in total and on a good road I don't even feel it.
What is the towing Capacity of the 2008 Mazda 6?
The 1990 Mazda 626 has a towing capacity of 750 pounds. The manufacturer recommends that you never exceed the towing capacity.
According to Mazda 3's own specs, the car has zero towing capacity. That is, Mazda does not recommend towing anything. Compare this with the Toyota Corolla, which has a 1500 pound capacity.
"Never tow a trailer with your Mazda"
The oil capacity for a 2000 Mazda Protege with a 1.6 Litre engine is 2.9 litres with an oil filter change ........... it is 2.7 without an oil filter change but who in their right mind would change an engine's oil without changing the filter is beyond me ??!!
