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

Review

I was at the dealer too look into purchasing a PT Cruiser. The maroon Protege was sitting on the showroom floor with a spoiler and regular wheels (not aluminum). It was a left over with all options except the wheels,sunroof and automatic. I drove the car and bought it as it handled fantatastically and had much more zip than a PT Crusier. My wife and I both love a manual trans. The gas mileage is around 28.7 in combined driving. The 130 HP four could use maybe 10-15 more horses as you have too wind it up to keep up with traffic from a light.

Favorite Features

Low wide tires stick to the roadand make the car very tossable.AM/FM cassete-CD player. Very comfortable interior. I like the stiffer ride than a Corolla or Civic. The unusual Moroon color and spoiler make it look better than any other Protege on the rode.

Suggested Improvements

Could use 10-15 more HP.
