Protege steps to the plate.

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


The Protege needed a face lift. Here it
is! Civics were murdering the market
but now it seems Mazda has something to
compete with. This youthful vehicle
drives smooth and comfortably with room
for five. The appeal is not only to the
low income single home family. It
appeals to all who have ideals of
street racing or the savy to drive
through town screaming "Hey look at me!
Sexy as I wanna be." Young adults as
well as older individuals feel spirited
when they get behind the wheel. Mazda
hit a homerun this year.

Best Features

I love the agressive look of the front bumper. The Mazda Clutch is the best in the business, it only intensifies the driving experience. Not to mention the superb handling.

Worst Features

Turbo engines should be optional. The turning signals are inadequate when you are beside the vehicle. Mazda needs to place a turning light on the fenders.
