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


I bought this car for a fun daily driver, and 4 years later have not been disappointed. There is seemingly nothing this car can't do well when it puts its mind to it. A perfectly balanced front-wheel drived car that neither pushes nor oversteers when at its limit. Not many cars can say they beat anything but a Lotus Elise through the slalom (including all of Italy's finest), but this is one of them. Weight transfer superb, steering responsiveness superb, and with a $30 manual boost controller and some other minor modifications, pick-up will press you in your seat. Just a blast to drive! I love my Mazdaspeed!
