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


Review

the most fun to drive FWD car money
can buy. i always catch myself looking
for a place to drive somewhere. You
have to take this car out on the
canyons to truly appreciate it. the
handling is simply incredible with just
enough power. but if you are looking
for more power, there is nothing a $45
MBC can not fix, along with a few other
relatively cheap upgrades avaliable.


Best Features

handling, interior design

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


Review

Wow.I love this car so much.Previous to
this, I owned a moded Protege5, and
thought it was the cats meow.But this
car, is just one of those vehicles,
where you get in, and youre like"Wow,
they took an awesome design, and made it
so much better, and it's so comfortable"
then you drive it, and you wonder if
there is anything that can take the
stains out of your shorts, cause you
crapped yourself when you took that
corner going 90km/h.It has somer very
nice pep, and some of the best handling
available on the market.The Bridgestone
Potenza tires really help keep the
vehicle controlled with the speeds it's
caple of. The whole time, listening to a
great stereo.


Best Features

The stereo, suspension and tires(Handling), the turbo, the interior, the stereo, the turbo. More fun the a go-kart, and alot faster too. Got a need for speed, get this MAZDASPEED


Worst Features

Boost Gauge, Turbo Timer, Forged Internals, and an FMIC stock would makes this car perfect. All of these items can be gotten very cheaply after market, so no worries.

Review

Everything on this car from the wheels
to the stereo were thoughtfully
planned out for the owner's
enjoyment. I have had this car for 9
months - my first manual ever - and
have not missed driving it one day.
It is fun, sporty, and sleek, yet
practical with great fuel economy and
4 doors. It is the perfect car for
someone looking for something fun to
drive who has family needs as well.


Best Features

Stereo is amazing, the get-up-and-go is spectacular! It is the best of both worlds!


Worst Features

Better noise reduction in the rear seats - easily fixable.
