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


Review

Excellent car for the money. Outstanding grip and packed with features. Made for the curves and packs some boost. Responds well to modifications, i.e. intercooler upgrades, boost controller, exhaust, etc. I would buy this car again. No regrets.


Best Features

Racing Beat suspension equipment. Garrett turbo. Kenwood audio system.


Worst Features

A better intercooler, pcm programming, and adjustable seating.

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


Review

Combine some minor engine performance
mods with excellent suspension tuning
using the best compact car platform
made and you get a reliable, sporty
car that is a blast to take on weekend
trips through the hill country while
not punishing you during your daily
commute. There is a great online
community at msprotege.com.


Best Features

Incredible reliability, absolutely amazing handling, great after-market support, wild colors, good stereo.


Worst Features

better ECU tuning, more boost (it's addictive).

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


Review

Overall, this is one of the best cars
you could possibly acquire for the
money. I have never had a more fun
car to drive. The grip is relentless,
and the steering is untouchable.


Best Features

The kenwood 450watt stereo, the T25 turbo, the tockiko/racing beat suspension, the racing hart wheels, the potenza tires, the BEAUTIFUL looks. I have had the car a year and STILL think it is one of the most attractive cars around.


Worst Features

Better ECU tuning, bigger intercooler.

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


Review

This car is great for running around
on some back roads and everyday
driving.The suspension will make the
leakest driver a good driver.There are
only a few things that should have
never made it into production.The
intercooler seems to be a little to
small and with the plastic ic piping,
heat soak becomes a problem.This will
be felt on everyday driving and even
more so when the car is pushed.The pcm
has its bugs also and the reflash only
helps a little bit.The all Kenwood
stereo system is great for the person
that likes clear music and doesnt need
to share it with others.With just a
little more power this car would be
complete.


Best Features

I love the handling of this car. The look, feel, and finish of the this car is great! The kenwood system is great.


Worst Features

I would improve the pcm programming, the intercooler and piping, and I would have liked to see more power.
