2003 Mazda Mazdaspeed Protege New 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5M)
What a great car. This is the car you should own when you're 21, but didn't have the money. People still stare at the rims. Much zip with the turbo, great handling. Almost 30 months and I'm not sick of it yet! Issues with the back bushings, we're about to head in for the 3rd replacement, 63,000 miles.
Turbo, handling, style, price, mileage.
Had much trouble with rear bushings and brake light on. Short warranty. Could use sunroof, more features.
