2002 Mazda Protege5 Wagon 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This thing really handles well for a inexpensive car. Power is a little less than what I hoped for, but it has potential (cold air intake, cat back exhaust) to be a zippy little toy.

Review

We just purchased this vehicle and couldn't be more satisfied. From my first test drive I couldn't believe the incredble way this car drove. It feels solid and inspiring. No cheap plastic pieces used for the interior. And the exterior design very attractive. A total package for less than you might think!

Review

Why does this M5, a Mazda product have to be primarily manuf. in MO? Appears all things fit but am concerned that Japanese tend to on average put together products w/ more costomer care in mind.

Little Wagon that could.

Review

Exterior is both good looking and functional. Front bumper a little low. Interior nicely excuted and supportive but roof line a little low. Center arm rest needs better placement. Performance: excellent handling & ABS brakes. Engine needs more power. Great versatility w/ individually fold down rear seats. Seat position and pedal placement hard to adjust for maximum comfort. Many bonus extras in a low price package makes it more attractive than its competitors.

9,000 miles of Zoom

Review

I bought this car in late September and broke it in on a 2,000 mile cross-country move. It was the most enjoyable "road trip" experience EVER, the cargo space was great, and the roof rack came in very handy. Acceleration. braking, and gas mileage were great even in the mountains with the car loaded down. It was also great knowing that I was automatically covered by Mazda's roadside assistance program, even though I've never needed to use it. I'm at 9,000 miles now and have had no problems.

Review

With the P5, Mazda gave me the form I was looking for and did not sacrifice function one bit. Some have complained that the 130 horses and 135 ft-lbs of torque tucked under the hood, are not enough. Well, I have not found that to be the case. The torque comes in nice and low and churns out nicely. The handling is near perfect. It seems at times, the harder you push the P5 into a curve, the more stable and flat she becomes.

A good experience

Review

The only real negatives about this car are in the performance and maybe the size, although interior space appear to be plenty for most people. All the car needs is about 20 more horsepower to compete against other cars. This car is absolutely fun to drive. The gear ratio is a little on the low side which suits city drivers well, I guess.

Review

Mazda is cleary the most under appreciated car company in the market. The Protege5 is in a class by itself for people who know they don't need 800 cubic-feet of space, love to drive (not ride) and can still appreciate a good looking example of automotive design (no snarling hood nostrals, bat-wing fins and exessive door ribs).
