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

Review

In all, a good car for around town. Nice style, easy to maneuver, steady suspension. The car has good torque for start-stop driving in crowded traffic. All of the knobs and switches are easy to locate and use. The down side? It loses its "oomph" way before 60mph. There is a very irritating wind-noise over 65mph. I don't know if it is the same for every protege, but mine has a high pitch wistle at 70mph+ that seems to come from around the windshield (the dealer has been unable to fix).

Favorite Features

Body style and standard wheel/tire set on the ES model. The interior looks nice, too.

Suggested Improvements

-better noise control -steering wheel telescoping (and I'm only 5'8") -better quality stereo
