2002 Mazda Protege ES 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
My ideal car is definitely not a four
door, but being a mere college student
with hardly any money, my options for
buying a new car were fairly limited.
For this reason, I took up a wonderful
deal on my Mazda. Aside from the fact
that I feel like a soccer mom in my
car, I have to give credit to my
little Protegé. I have only had a
couple of problems with it since I've
had it, but the problems were minor
(including a cd getting stuck in the
cd player and my alarm system being
too sensitive) and were fixed promptly
at the dealership.
I liked the car from the start because
of how it handles compared to other
compact sedans. It drives more sporty
than it looks. Also, the black
interior with silver accents are
attractive in the ES model. I also
like the way the front of my car
Suggestion to Mazda: Make the back
lights more attractive/sporty;
consider making a coupe model; TIMER
ON REAR DEFROST SHOULD BE STANDARD!
Also, there has been a burning wax
smell that doesn't seem to want to go
away (although it is less frequently
occurring than before).
