2000 Mazda Protege ES 4dr Sedan


After two fun years with the Protege ES
I can report that this cars best feature
is the well developed suspension. The
steering provides great feedback, and is
properly weighted.Brakes are up to the
task even with the low tech drums out
back. The motor is adequate but who
doesn't want more power. Styling is
clean both exterior and interior and is
holding up well to the rigors of the day
to day grind. On the downside I have
found that this is a noisy car and I
have had to add some insulation to the
rear panel and doors. Additionally I had
the vehicle undercoated. I have also had
to solve a couple of rattle/buzz issues.

Best Features

Best suspension, steering, handling in it's class. An economy car that enjoys a spirited drive.

Worst Features

Better noise management. Warranty that covers 'adjustments' for greater than 1yr/12k.
