2003 Mazda Protege LX 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


I was very happy with my buying experience, with the dealership, from the salesman, to the service manager. I expected better gas mileage, but it gets about 28 or 29 mpg. Even on the open road it only gets 30 mpg if the a/c is off. It is very comfortable, and has ample room for elbows, etc. That was a big deal to me. It still looks like a new car, even after six months. It handles very well. If you want alot of get up and go, it is not as good as some others maybe, but it has enough for me.

Best Features

Style--it looks like a more expensive car. Easy to clean--I don't pay for expensive wash jobs, it is easy to do myself. Maneuvers easily. Huge trunk area, and great access from back seat to trunk.
