1999 Mazda Protege ES 4dr Sedan

Review

105000 miles on it and still drives
like new. When replacing the timing
belt you must replace the tensioner as
well because the spring that pulls on
the tensioner carves a groove through
it with the of the engine vibrations.
Also most auto parts store do not have
the correct tensioner for the ES model.
I had to buy mine online and searched
for the 2.0 liter 2000 model to get the
correct tensioner. Go figure??

Best Features

Cruise control and air. Radio too, it has very good reception. Buttons are starting to act wierd though.

Worst Features

Better insulation from noise.
