2003 Mazda Protege5 Wagon 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I bought in Nov 2002 and have driven my car
on long hauls a lot... despite low-proifle tires
it rides well, handles beautifully and only
needs a good exhaust system to make it
perfect! wish the gearshift action was tighter
and had more power, but aside from that, no
complaints at all! dealers do gouge a bit on
oil changes, so I'm looking for a good
mechanic instead


Best Features

love the handling, brakes (didn't get ABS), steering, 6-CD sound system, monroof and polished rims - great overall package


Worst Features

more power at low and midrange, auto up windows, better shifter gating and less dealership gouging

Review

The initial quality was flawless. It
has more interior room than any other
car in it's price class. It handles
likes your driving on rails due to the
precise steering, tight suspension and
16 inch tires. The automatic/manual
transmission makes it so fun to drive!!
It can go from 40-70 mph faster than
any small car we have ever driven. The
road noise is far less than our Saturn
SW2 and is more agile and the turning
radius is incredible. The visibility
is good because your not sitting on the
floor boards like the Saturn. It also
has a standard 48000 mile 5yr bumper to
bumper warranty. We are VERY happy
with our purchase!!


Best Features

Lots of head room!! Automatic/manual transmission Simple instrument cluster Adjustable seat belt angle independant 40/60 rear seats big glove box (that doesn't dump your stuff when you open it)


Worst Features

It would be nice if you had the option for a larger engine.
