2003 Mazda Mazdaspeed Protege New 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Interior components line-up flawlessly
into each other.

It has usable power anywhere over 1500
RPM and at 3K-3K5 has ample passing
power without spinning the turbo
extensively. Playing in the off-ramps
and curvy roads in SoCal really gets my
audrenaline pumping. The car will do
whatever you want and feels like the
faster you go into a corner, the more
accelloration you have to feed it to
track (grab) the road. I think to get
to the next level of overall balance of
power, handling and refinement one
would have to get into the $32K price

Best Features

Perfect performance suspension (may be a bit harsh for luxury-inclined), power exceeds fuel economy, fit and finish is excellent, driving this care feels like an extention of my body to the road.

Worst Features

The Kenwood deck makes simple audio operation impossible without consulting the manuals, where are the rear speakers and the car is too addictive to be legal!
