2003 Mazda Mazdaspeed Protege New 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5M)
Review
Was a very exciting car to have at first. Nice little 2.0 turbo, was quick, fun to drive and didn't do too horribly on gas. Then the recall notices came in and everything starting to fall apart, from replaced motor, turbo, oil leaks, ac not working and countless of letters in the mails for recall issues. Thank god for warranty but it was a hassle to have something major go wrong every few months. Turbo literally replaced 3 times. Also one of the cylinders went bad twice. It ran rich and made fuel economy drop. Sold it in 05 and the kid who bought it pretty much destroyed it. It's a decent car if you can take care of it. You want to drive it fast, but if you'll end up in the shop
Favorite Features
Quick, looks nice, handles well.
Suggested Improvements
Engine can't handle the turbo, interior is dull, generally most of the issues have to do with the engine.
