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


Had my protege almost 1 year now and have enjoyed all the driving. Racked up 16000 miles on road trips and driving to work and has been clear sailing thus far. Milage is still improving on all types of driving averaging about 28mpg and I don't get too uncomfortable even after 6 hours of straight driving. Babied this car the whole way and it is built to last. Can't beat the deal they offered late in the model year. Moonroof, 6-disc, abs all great options on a bargain car. Solid driving on sunny days and very controllable on snowy streets.

Best Features

Drives great, can't ask for much more on milage, styling is fine. Great value, solid built car, fun to drive. A car that will last.

Worst Features

Pockets behind seats would be nice, auto lock not lit up at night, cup holders need more space (kinda tight). Add some more power, 130 is ok but more would complete the package. Another gear would be nice for H/W...RPM's above 3000....
