1999 Mazda Protege LX 4dr Sedan


I bought my '99 Mazda Protege LX used
in July of 2003. 3 weeks later, I had
a horrible accident with it. The car
was totalled, but I walked out with
only bruised ribs. The seat belts,
air bags, & crumple zones worked
great! The cops said they couldn't
believe I wasn't badly injured, given
how severe the accident was. I
loved my '99 Protege. It still drove
great at 70K miles. I loved the car
so much that I bought a used 2000
Protege to replace it. This is a
great little car!

Best Features

5-speed transmission (a must), cd player, tight handling, cool body style, 38 mpg on highway.

Worst Features

Work on limiting road noise, which is a little excessive at higher speeds on some asphalt highways.
