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


I love to drive it, looks great and
feels great. Interior looks quality
made, no cheap plastic here. But it
lacks power, needs more than 130 hp but
it still gets me places. If having to
choose between reliability and speed I
would choose reliability and that is
why I chose the protege. Never gives me
a problem (knock on wood...hope not)
and people are attracted to it, saying
they did not know mazda made a car like
that. Overall, great car, needs boost

Best Features

I love the silver accents in the interior and the carbon fiber as well. The guages light up red and everything just looks clean to it. No other car in this class I think has a better interior.

Worst Features

Maybe add a turbo stock on the ES models.....wishful thinking. Plus on the ES models make the mp3 style bumper an option or stock to make it look better. Still like it though.
