Best compact sedan money can buy!!

Vehicle2002 Mazda Protege ES 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
ReviewI love this car, plain and simple. I bought my 02' Protege ES because I had to downgrade in order to save money because of my new son. Its 2.0L motor is peppy for a 4 banger that allows for pretty easy passing and decent acceleration even up steep hill grades although another 20 horsepower would be appreciated. The interior is very nice and well laid out. The ES actually has a tight and solid feel of a higher priced car and handles great, although the supspension is a little stiff.
Best FeaturesHandling, exterior and interior, build quality and general performance.
Worst FeaturesShorter shift throw, stiffer rear sway bar to keep rear better in line under aggressive cornering, another 20-30 horsepower, deeper drink holders, more powerful stock stereo with better speakers (perhaps a subwoofer in back to help with bass and tweeters up front for better highs).
