1999 Mazda Protege ES 4dr Sedan


I bought this car brand new after
graduation from college back in May,
1999. ES model I added powered sunroof.
When I drove out of the dealer room,
it's only 13 miles on its odometer, now
it's almost 47000 miles. So far I had 3
problems, first happened in Twin
Cities, MN in 2000, check sign was
always on falsely, esp. during rainy
and damp days, finally fixed it after
several trips; Next happened in 2002 CD
player didn't work, probably due to
some scrached CD effect, changed a new
player and another to make it work
again. Both of above were under
warranty. So I didn't pay a buck at all.

Best Features

Now my third problem is one of back powered window didn't work, you have to manually open and close it, no biggie, can live without it, but noise it made is annoying every time. elegant exterior and roomy interior, good mileage and decent sound system;

Worst Features

Negative side, noisy during drive on the highway and limited horsepower; After all, it's an excellent car, I am aiming at driving to 100 K without major overhaul, let's wait and see its performance.
