1999 Mazda Protege DX 4dr Sedan

Review

I purchased a 99 Protege DX (used for only 5 months - repo'ed) in 1/00 for my wife. I have had to invest no money in this car other than for gas and oil. No electrical problems, no mechanical problems. Comfortable for our family of four. Adequate acceleration for a 1.6 auto; don't expect to be pushed back into your seat. Good fuel economy - high 20s to low 30s in mostly urban driving. Nice, conservative styling. Could use more sound insulation, though. I recently acquired a Montero for my wife, and plan to use the Protege myself - it'll make a good substitute for my 96 VW Jetta money pit.

Favorite Features

Solid 1.6L engine, good A/C, comfortable interior, plenty of trunk space.

Suggested Improvements

More sound insulation. We'll see how they fare with the Protege's substitute, the 2004 Mazda 3.
