2003 Mazdaspeed - 2nd week report
By flask38 on
Vehicle
2003 Mazda Mazdaspeed Protege New 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5M)
Review
Interior components line-up flawlessly into each other. It has usable power anywhere over 1500 RPM and at 3K-3K5 has ample passing power without spinning the turbo extensively. Playing in the off-ramps and curvy roads in SoCal really gets my audrenaline pumping. The car will do whatever you want and feels like the faster you go into a corner, the more accelloration you have to feed it to track (grab) the road. I think to get to the next level of overall balance of power, handling and refinement one would have to get into the $32K price range.
Favorite Features
Perfect performance suspension (may be a bit harsh for luxury-inclined), power exceeds fuel economy, fit and finish is excellent, driving this care feels like an extention of my body to the road.
Suggested Improvements
The Kenwood deck makes simple audio operation impossible without consulting the manuals, where are the rear speakers and the car is too addictive to be legal!
