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


As of today I have 54683 miles in less
than two years and not one problem
with the vehicle. I do primarily
highway driving and I change the oil
every 5k. This is the first Mazda I
have owned and it will NOT be the

Best Features

For an economy car this thing handles like a dream!! The steering is taught and responsive. I find the interior to be great too. Whether it's the fat steering wheel, or the seat fabric, or the white gauges, I like it!!

Worst Features

Better fuel economy would be nice. I average 25-27 mpg on the highway. The car runs 3600 rpm at 80 mph in 5th gear. So, there's a lot of engine noise and I also think that contributes to the poor fuel economy.
