A Must-have Fun Sport Sedan
By Titus Armstrong on
2003 Mazda Mazdaspeed Protege 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5M)
I like all Mazdaspeed Protege, SI, Mini Cooper S, SRT-4, WRX, Evo VII,
SE-R, SVT, GTi,.....
As RX-7 owner, I choose to own a Mazda again. I like the
orange color, the 17 inch alloy rims and the interior is one of the
The base price of $20,000+ was really light on my wallet. As a successful
computer engineer,I still enjoy driving very much, I decided to go with
something new to me - a sport little soup-up sedan. I have only put on 150+
miles so far and have not tested the ability of the car yet. But, man, if you
have $20,000 + to spare, either get the WRX for 4 season fun or this little
turbo-charged Progete for its look and performance.
Stick shift is accurate and fast. The turbo provides a rather linear power
boost. The look is very clean and is one of the niciest. The interior color
and quality is probably the best in this class !!!! The 17" alloy rims is great
looking !!!! Stereo is excellent !!!!
I wish that the factory remote control can be better with remote window
lowering/rolling. Tinted window will be a good feature add-on.
