One of the Best Balanced Sedans

Vehicle2003 Mazda Protege ES 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
ReviewI had a 1999 Corolla. It was a great car, but it was more vanilla than The Breyer's Ice Cream Factory. No excitement, no fun! If your looking for all the pluses of the Toyota Corolla's build quality & reliability, but want something MUCH more fun to drive. MUCH more stylish, the Protege is IT. I put every single option on this car, from the Auto-dimming Rear View mirror to the cargo net in the trunk. If it was an option, I put it on this car. Friends with MUCH more expensive cars, actually like driving my car and draw comparisons to their much more expensive the Audi A4 and the like. What's that tell ya?
Best FeaturesExcellent tight steering feel, great handling and cornering, excellent overall road stability. Attention to fit and finish, great interior fabrics/Colors as well as feel. Nothing about this car says cheap.
Worst FeaturesBiggest Gripe: The ride does get stiff/jiggly at times on secondary roads. Soften it a bit without compromising the excellent handling. Also make standard: glove box light, and passenger side door Lock control, more speakers w/6 disk CD and Keyless Remote Trunk Release.
