Poor man's Jetta
By Joshua Ranger on
2002 Mazda Protege ES 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
We lost our 1998.5 VW Jetta last year when we were rearended (insurance totaled the car). With very little money and no desire to release again we again looked to the Protege' (my 2nd choice when I got the Jetta). I call my car a poor man's Jetta because it has much (but not all) of the "fun to drive" as our VW. It is by all accounts a do-fer (it'll do-fer now) and I will say it's much more comfortable in long drives than the VW and a much better value (I do not miss the trips to the fancy VW service centers).
Favorite Features
Zippiness even with the low HP. Rubberized interior. Standard CD. Simple to use 60/40 seats.
Suggested Improvements
I miss the room and design of the Jetta trunk. Trunk lid seems cheap. Another reviewer mentioned the air pressure problems when you roll down the back window, the Jetta had it worse.
