2002 Mazda Protege LX 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Needed a second car and looked at
Mazda, Honda, Corolla, and Sentra. All
great cars and each with its own
character. But, when it was time to
buy, Mazda offered the best deal($3000
better than any of the above with the
same features) and was by far and away,
the best car. Drives with aplomb,
handles suberbly, breaks better than my
Seville, interior is flawlessy designed
and Quality is built in. Acceleration
is more than I would expect from a
compact car. I enjoy the comfort of
this car better than my Cadillac--all
though it does lack many digital
gadgits. Overall, I would but this car
again in a heart beat.

Best Features

Ride and comfort are superb. This is a nice niche car,has Quality built in, and gives you a solid feel of rubber meeting the road..

Worst Features

More cupholders.The passenger seat has a gap between the top and bottom portion and consequently, items tend to slide through the gap and fall on the back floor.
