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


This car is the steal of the century. I bought mine new in '03 as it was one of the few '02's left at the dealership and got a great discount on it. For an econonomy car price you get one of the most fun and well built cars on the road. If I had $25k to spend on a car, I think I'd still would have bought my 5spd Protege ES. This car has so much poise and is so easy to drive at any speed. It handles like a miata, looks great, is comfy and man does it love to play! This is my 3rd Protege and definitely the best so far. I highly recommend this car.

Best Features

smooth shifter light clutch interior/exterior 16" rims/tires HANDLING revving engine everything

Worst Features

Remote could have trunk release Engine revs a little high on the highway but that's expected with a 4 cylinder plus the car doesn't seem to strain at all. There's little to improve on this car.
