2003 Mazda Mazdaspeed Protege 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5M)
Review
Best Protege available, was the best "fit" for my compact "sports" car needs. Very precise steering is the car's best feature, easily the equal of the Mini (which is saying a LOT). Great handling for a front-driver with a firm but compliant suspension, which I like. Comfortable supportive seats but having Sparco seats as an option wouldn't hurt. Definitely won't smoke an Evo or WRX, but is somewhat close and easily as much fun. Roomy back seat, cramped trunk (stock subwoofer in the way).
Favorite Features
Steering, handling, good power, quite comfortable and economical for such a "niche" performance car. Great tunes but difficult-to-use head unit. "Mist" wiper setting is quick (like a rally car)
Suggested Improvements
NEEDS cruise, sunroof, adjustable int. wipers, clock (visible only only w/radio on). Some power surging @part throttle. Small buttons &display on stereo. Problems are minor, car is great.
