Watch out for Mazda Protege Transmission

1999 Mazda Protege ES 4dr Sedan


Purchased this car new, ran great until just after warranty expired, then had one problem after another from O2 sensor, catalytic converter, and finally when out of warranty, transmission sensor went, and Schwartz Mazda in NJ misdiagnosed and repaired with a rebuilt trans. After 3 more visits, still having the same syptoms that originally brought me to the bring in the car, spedometer drop out, o/d off light flashing, and car revviing out of control, they finally replaced the speed sensor on the transmission. This is after a $2000 transmission. Let the buyer beware, when your 50k warranty runs out you are on your own.

Best Features

Horsepower for a 4 cylinder

Worst Features

Substitute the Automatic transmission, it has many cases of failure, it is made by Ford.
