2002 Mazda Protege ES 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

Review

Car handles very well, comfortable, roomy back seat for the size class. Sharp looking exterior. Automatic transmission shifts well, although it feels like it could use another gear at highway speeds. Interior looks good, not too cheap; however the center console/armrest is too low. I also wish that it had a timer on the rear defroster, door unlock buttons on the passenger doors and a trunk release button on the keyless enty remote. The red illumination of the gauges took awhile to get use to as well. I am getting 25 MPG in mixed driving, I was hoping for a little better. Other than that I can't complain.

Best Features

Handling, exterior looks, Reliability is good (one of the most important criteria for me).

Worst Features

Better gearing to bring the revs down at highway speeds, a higher center console/armrest, a timer on the rear defroster, door unlock buttons on the passenger doors, a trunk release button on the keyless enty remote, and move the sunroof controls to the dash.
