2000 Mazda Protege ES 4dr Sedan


I got a great deal on this car at end of year. I wanted every option available. I log lots of highway miles due to commute. This car is a hoot to drive. I put better tires on it and it handles beautifully. I perform all scheduled maintenance on time and have had no issue except for the ABS brakes. The last time I had them replaced about 10k miles ago, the dealer didn't even do a test drive. I started to drive off the lot and the noise and grabbing was unbearable. Lost another day without it until they fixed the issue.

Best Features

Moonroof, handling capability, trunk space and fold down rear seat for carrying.

Worst Features

Improve noise reduction at highER speeds (not saying that I go over the speed limit!), better brakes.
