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


I have had minimal problems with this car. The factory head-unit is a piece of junk and prone to problems...just replace it. I love the looks I get, it is unusual enough to turn heads without looking all tweaked out. It's a blast to drive, very responsive off the line and in turns. Comfort suffers very slightly, it is performance oriented after all. I highly recommend this car. I have only replaced the tires and the serpentine belt on the driving end of things. Time for brakes and plugs next.

Best Features

I love the handling in turns. Is quick off the line. Overall looks catches people's eyes.

Worst Features

Stereo head unit is very problematic. Its fold up, flip down feature leads to problems. Sounds great when it works. I just replaced mine. Also had to get warranty work done on the sub. They replaced my blown one with a factory rebuild. system sounds great though
