Poor Girl's Sports Car
By redhed on
2002 Mazda Protege ES 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
I absolutely love my little Protege!
It's fun to drive, is awesome in
corners, and looks great. I still get
a thrill when I see it all shined up,
even more than a year after buying it
(mine is black, with a mask on the
front). I laughingly call it my "poor
girl's sports car" because it's the
closest thing to a sports car I can
afford. I'm very pleased with the
handling and performance of this car.
After test driving one, I knew I had to
have it! It gives me the sporty look I
like, but has the room for me to
play "soccer mom" when toting my
teenager and her friends around.
I love the way it hugs the roads in
corners. It really has a lot of pep.
I also like its appearance, and think
it is more than competition for some of
the higher-priced competitive models.
It would be nice if the rear-window
defroster automatically turned off.
