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


I purchased my Mazdaspeed less than a
week ago, and while I'm still
definitely in the honeymoon phase, I
can say without a doubt this car is the
best driving experience available under
$30,000. It's a steal at $20,000, and
with the limited production, it's not
going to be the depreciation nightmare
most economy cars are. If you can find
one, drive it, compare what you get,
and you'll return to the Mazda
dealership without a doubt in your mind
about your decision.

Best Features

I'm pleased with everything, exterior styling is clean and modern, interior is functional. Controls are precise. Stereo is the best buildable system available. No more rewiring!

Worst Features

With the horsepower wars in full force, perhaps an additional thirty to fifty ponies wouldn't hurt. Although, this car is a driver's car, not a racer, so the 170 offered now is more than enough to enjoy yourself.
