2003 Mazda Mazdaspeed Protege New 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5M)
Review
I bought the car brand new, only had 12 miles on it when I drove it off the lot. 45000 miles later and a trip to germany and I still love this car. The turbo gives the car some great get-up-and-go when you floor it. I have had to do little to no maintenance on it. I love the interior and the short shift. The handling, well there aren't too many vehicles that handle as well as this car. Have just recently put on a new body kit, upgraded the exhaust, and threw some 18s on it to give it a meaner look. Overall great car and extremely fun to drive. Tops out at 137 mph. Also love it when someone asks if it's a lancer and the look on their face when I say "it's a mazdaspeed protege."
Favorite Features
Love the colors, the aggressive look right out of the dealership, rims, interior, short shift, and handling.
Suggested Improvements
Had to replace stereo and subwoofer in less than 3 months from purchase. Other than that excellent car!!! A must own!!!
