Precise, fun little car

Vehicle2003 Mazda Mazdaspeed Protege 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5M)
ReviewBest 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
Best FeaturesSteering, 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)
Worst FeaturesNEEDS 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.
