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

Review

I am probably one of the few people to put this many miles on a car in just a few years. I have 180,000 miles on it and the car never quits. Other than basic maintenance I have had only two problems in all my miles. 1) Power steering pump started leaking and 2) rear brake caliper froze (probably due to Chicago winters). The engine is still strong. The wear ability of the products used to build this car is superior. The car interior still looks very close to new. I canít say enough about this car. If you're looking for a reliable, fun to drive, fuel efficient all around do everything car, look no further. The problem will be trying to find one. They only made them in model year 2002 and 2003.

Best Features

5 speed manual - great 3rd gear ratio. Handles like a Vette (perhaps better in some tests -YES I have driven Vettes to be able to say that!).

Worst Features

Not such low profile tires would soften the ride. It doesnít bother the driver because the driver is enjoying driving). Passengers may find it a bit harsh because they are just sitting there doing nothing
