2001 Mazda Protege ES 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


I recently purchased a 2001 Protege ES
via private sale with 24k miles. I
know from experience that Mazdas just
go and go. I owned a 1987 323 and as a
second owner, it carried me well into
the 200,000 mile stretch. I love the
styling most of all about the '01
Protege ES. I look out at it in my
driveway and smile; I like it so much!
I love the interior styling and
roominess of the ES. I drove a few co-
workers and myself to lunch today and
they commented how much leg room there
was in the back seat. I like the
spoiler because it helps me gauge where
I am when backing out or into a parking

Overall, for the quality and
price it can't be beat.

Best Features

I might mention that when unlocking the car with the remote, to get ALL of the doors to unlock, you must press the "unlock" button twice. I found that one out today when I noticed that only the driver side door unlocked when I press it once, then they all unlock when I press it twice.

Worst Features

It would be ideal if the steering wheel could telescope towards the driver, not just move up and down. Additional intermittent wiper blade modes please. The 4-speaker stereo/CD is "ok". The arm rest is basically nonexistent. The air circulation button works only when it wants to.
