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


What a pleasure to find so much driving
fun for so little $.This car has a
quality, roomy interior seating 5 real
people. The exterior exudes youthful
energy. It comes off the floor with the
wheels,tires,pedals and stereo that you
would add to most cars in this class.
It handles like it is on rails, not
quite like my M3 convertible, but far
closer than I imagined for about a
third the price. I think it would get
great gas mileage if I could just say
no to that great gas pedal. I hear you
can easily increase the turbo boost but
I don't know how you would keep the
front wheels on the pavement with any

Best Features

Comfort,handling,speed,great stereo, interior size,and price after rebate!

Worst Features

Brighter instrument lighting, dimmer night time stereo lighting. Bigger center armrest with cup holder, seat back nets, turbo boost gage, clock. Wheel well insulation (road particles sound like hail on a tin roof)and a six speed (all at the same price of course)
