1999 Mazda Protege ES 4dr Sedan

Review

Purchased new in '99 and have had little troubles since then. The car now has 95,000 miles on it and drives like new. I have never got as good of gas mpg as i would have hoped for this little car, but it's ok. The catalytic converter went out at around 70k, the power door locks and the cd player also both went out at arount the same time. I was lucky enough to have purchased the extended warranty to 100k, so I paid for none of the repairs. It's a nice little car to run around town in. On the highway it's not as comfortabel as i would have liked.

Best Features

5spd manual, wheels look nice, very nice exterior look overall.

Worst Features

Wind noise at high speeds, faulty cd player, the low profile tires are very expensive to replace and don't last long, bad paint job. car is a '99 and the paint is starrting to fade horribly, must wax twice a month.
