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??

Favorite Features

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

Suggested Improvements

Better insulation from noise.
