2000 Mazda Protege ES 4dr Sedan


I have had this car for 5 years and put on 98,000 miles. Over all it has been a nice little car; it is fun to drive and has been fairly reliable. There have been some problems with it - the starter coil has burned out twice and the catalytic converter went on me. All of these problems were covered by the original warranty. Additionally, two of the automatic door locks have broken which is a real pain. I have had 3 or 4 sets of tires and the poor weather handling has always been a problem. If I didn't have a 5-speed to slow the car on snow, I don't think it would ever stop sliding.

Best Features

Reliability, 5-speed is fun to drive, gas mileage.

Worst Features

Poor weather handling and reliablilty of automatic door locks.
