2001 Mazda Protege DX 4dr Sedan (1.6L 4cyl 5M)

Review

Look no further if you want a simple, more-bang-for-your-buck economy sedan. I couldn't believe how well the 4-door Protege' DX compared to the Nissan Sentra, Chevy Prizm, Saturn SL2, Toyota Corolla, and- its main nemesis- the Honda Civic. The DX may be the plain Jane of the Protege' stable, but she is still a beauty of the first magnitude. I would buy another Protege' in a minute.

Favorite Features

Excellent 5-speed manual transmission (tight!), great fuel economy- 35 MPG highway; 28 MPG city. Nice paint job (tough finish). Comfortable interior- front and back seats. Firm, smooth, feel-the-road handling in steering and suspension. Excellent AM/FM/CD Stereo and speakers.

Suggested Improvements

Cruise control. Offer a hybrid electric/gas engine with electric regenerative braking! Hmm. How about a hydrogen fuel cell engine?!
