2000 Mazda Protege ES 4dr Sedan

Review

After two fun years with the Protege ES I can report that this cars best feature is the well developed suspension. The steering provides great feedback, and is properly weighted.Brakes are up to the task even with the low tech drums out back. The motor is adequate but who doesn't want more power. Styling is clean both exterior and interior and is holding up well to the rigors of the day to day grind. On the downside I have found that this is a noisy car and I have had to add some insulation to the rear panel and doors. Additionally I had the vehicle undercoated. I have also had to solve a couple of rattle/buzz issues.

Favorite Features

Best suspension, steering, handling in it's class. An economy car that enjoys a spirited drive.

Suggested Improvements

Better noise management. Warranty that covers 'adjustments' for greater than 1yr/12k.
