Best Car I have owned
By mazdafan8 on


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


I love my Mazda.
I bought it used in 2004 with 25,000 miles on it.
It now has 88,000 miles.
I have only replaced brake pads, tires and one hose in addition to oil changes.
My engine runs flawlessly.
I get better than rated mileage.
She handles great for a sub-compact.
Has road feel instead of the numb feedback of a Toyota.
The stick is smooth with shifts.
Seats are comfortable.
I will keep it until it dies since it has no resell value.
I hope to get at least another two years.

Best Features

Road feel, handling, reliability.

Worst Features

It is not a quiet car. Lots of road noise. It is rusting at the bottom of the doors an wheel wells.
