2001 Mazda Protege LX 4dr Sedan (1.6L 4cyl 5M)


After 15 years of pontificating the
vices of japanese cars, I finally gave
up on my slow, unrefined, unreliable
american cars and bought this Mazda.
I'll never look back. This car is
rock-solid and after my first year, I
still look forward to driving it
(unlike my american cars of yore!)
The Protege is a blast to drive (lots
of zoom-zoom), handles great, and is
pretty peppy when you dig into the
gas. It's also roomy, with a
fantastic interior (Mazda is making
the best interiors in the business
right now!!) and refinement,
refinement, refinement.

Worst Features

Just a *tad* more sound deadening, and maybe just a *smidgen* more torque at lower revs...
