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


I just recently purchased my '01
Protege, so I may seem biased by
posting a review quickly. However, it
was one of two vehicles and the
Protege was the one I prefered NOT to
have. After a day I noticed the ride
was smooth, the interior console was
sleek, and it has a style of class all
it's own. For those who want a car no
one else really has, this will make
you stand out with shimmering beauty.
I recommend this to anyone looking for
more quality per buck.

Best Features

Incredible stock sound system, if I were to add anything to it it would just be a 10 or 12 with the stock amp in the back. The class of the look makes it a beautiful ride.

Worst Features

At 130 hp @ 5500 rpms, I'd prefer something with a more engine, but how much more can you get from a 4 cyl./2L? Acceleration is about a 6.5 on a 1-10 scale, so I'd like to see a boost in that as well. Of course if you want something with sport, try the MP3.
