2000 Mazda Protege ES 4dr Sedan


We purchased our Protege ES in July
2000 and have since put 37K on it. It
is solid and well-built, quick, and a
good looking car. It also has the
advantage of not being quite as common
as, say, a Honda Civic. This is in
fact the second Protege we've owned,
our first being a 1991 LX model.

If you're looking for a great small-
medium sedan and don't want to pay that
Civic or Corolla premium, but still
want the upsides of those makes, go see
your local Mazda dealer.

Best Features

Snappy performance, snarky front end, great fit & finish. Fun to drive! Best in its segment!

Worst Features

None really, but if you think you might ever want to move large objects about, buy a Tribute. It'd be nice if Mazda could squeeze a couple more MPG out of that 2.0 (we get ~23/28), but it's only a tiny point IMO.
