Watch out for Mazda Protege Transmission
By Alicia60 on


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.
