2003 Mazda Mazdaspeed Protege 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5M)

Review

I purchased mine in April or May2003, I love it. Handeling is great, the paint looks like a show paint, (have had multiple comments on it) my only thing is the power/turbo fluctuates. Maybe it's the intercooler could be a little better/bigger. If it's cool outside, that thing will pull and pull, but give it time to warm up...In this Texas heat, 95-102 and humidity out tha ying yang, it makes it tough on it. But if you get aggressive on it, it will wake up for you, just not quite as much pull as on a cool day. The brakes and suspension are excellent . VERY SAFE & RESPONSIVE CAR.

Best Features

Powder coated rims, responsive car, handles very well. Love the MP3 cd player, (120-190 songs on 1 cd, @128kbps) Turbo has good pull and has a great screaming sound, when cool

Worst Features

Better/bigger intercooler. No sunroof. Just little high off the ground. (drop it 1-2") And the oddest one. See the 6x9 speaker grills in the rear window? THERE'S NOTHING IN THERE! LOL! Ya got'm in the door though, and it's still above par for a stock radio, so I can't complain too much.
