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


I love to drive it, looks great and feels great. Interior looks quality made, no cheap plastic here. But it lacks power, needs more than 130 hp but it still gets me places. If having to choose between reliability and speed I would choose reliability and that is why I chose the protege. Never gives me a problem (knock on wood...hope not) and people are attracted to it, saying they did not know mazda made a car like that. Overall, great car, needs boost though.

Best Features

I love the silver accents in the interior and the carbon fiber as well. The guages light up red and everything just looks clean to it. No other car in this class I think has a better interior.

Worst Features

Maybe add a turbo stock on the ES models.....wishful thinking. Plus on the ES models make the mp3 style bumper an option or stock to make it look better. Still like it though.
