2003 Mazda Protege LX 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


We've owned this vehicle for one year
and have had no troubles with this
car. Excellent power with the 5-speed
transmission. Handling is superb. The
only maintenance needed so far were oil
changes. Only two real complaints.
First, the car turns too many RPM in
5th gear on the highway, making for a
noisy ride. Second, the
weatherstriping on the windshield
causes an irritating whistling noise
when you're driving with a moderate-to-
strong crosswind. Slight flaws for an
otherwise wonderful car.

Best Features

Outstanding handling. Plenty of power. Upscale interior design.

Worst Features

Needs a additional gear for highway speeds. Reduce the amount of road and wind noise at speed. Change the design of the radio antenna.
