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


I have had my car for about 1 year and 10 months. The car has been trouble free. The only thing I have done is change the oil and rotate the tires. I was involed in a major accident which caused $7,600 damage. The car did perform well in the accident and the crumple zones did function properly. My only concern is that the seat broke backwards and it pulled up out of the floor. What troubled me was the Mazda REFUSED to talk with me about this issue, they said I had to have my insurance company or an attorney call them, I think that is very odd and suspicious.

Best Features

The 5sp is smooth and the clutch is easy to use. I love the white gauges with the red back lights. The car handles well. I LOVE the multi adjustable driver seat, could be my favorite feature of the car.

Worst Features

All season tires for climates that get snow! One touch open and close sunroof. More horsepower. Ability to open trunk with remote entry. Put the antenna in the rear glass, mine makes wind noise. 2 door option.
