2003 Mazda Mazdaspeed Protege New 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5M)
I just bought my Mazdaspeed. I've only
had it for three days, but I know that
I'm going to love it for a long time.
I have had a lot of different types of
cars and even a couple of trucks, some
of the nicer than this overall.
However, none of them were this much
fun. I bought the last silver one in
Indiana, and it gets a lot of looks.
Stereo is great, car is comfortable,
nice fit and finish. Looks are spot
on. Drives like a dream. A whole lot
of bang for the buck. I paid $19,200
minus a $2,500 rebate and an additional
$500 in graduate cash on top of that.
Power is adequate. There is a bit of
lunge from the turbo at times, but I
don't mind it too much. Another 30
ponies wouldn't hurt anyone.
