1999 Mazda Protege ES 4dr Sedan


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.
