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


This car is very fun to drive. Without
question the best handling car for the
money. This car has a great engine and
a nice interior. Small things need
changing to make this car the best
small car.Rear window is hard to see
out of when backing up. Gas mileage
could be better. Expierenced average of
17.3mpg in mixed driving. Best highway
mileage expierenced was 24. Both way
below the sticker. Only other
complaints were build quality and
broken trunk release. Build quality not
up to Honda or Toyota.

Best Features

Sum it up as Car and Driver did "BMW verve for half the price".

Worst Features

Rear window, build qulity, gas mileage
