1999 Mazda Protege DX 4dr Sedan


I bought it used, it came from a rental fleet. It has been absolutely trouble-free with routine maintenance even after a significant accident that needed major repair and another fender- bender (literally) once repairs were made, I have had years of trouble free use. Definitely would recommend, and would buy another if they still made them.

Best Features

Fuel economy and reliability. Also able to carry an surprising amount of cargo with the rear seats down (twin bed, Christmas trees, lots of boxes) .

Worst Features

Road noise is high. Also a little sluggish to accelerate uphill (like an uphill on-ramp) if the air conditioning is on -- but still adequate and safe.
