A 4-door Miata with Mercedes Quality
By Creek Car Guy on
2003 Mazda Protege ES 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
This is my fifth Protege (counting my
323GT). I wish I still owned ALL of my
Proteges. This car has the fit and
finish equal to the new Mercedes I have
also owned. I use this car as a "sports
car" for kayaking and camping trips, so
it is my "escape" vehicle. I have used
some of my previoius ones as my main
commuter car with excellent results as well.
1. Drives like a Miata
2. Fit and finish like a Mercedes
3. Absolutely reliable
4. Has more usable storage than my
company car--Acura RL!
1. I bought the ES because of its
upgraded brakes and suspension--I just
wish it didn't have the spoiler! Ruins
the great rear view.
2. Rear seat is a little bouncy--but I
don't use it anyway!
