Don't buy this car whatever you do.

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


The suspension is horrendous and the
ride nauseating on anything other than
perfectly smooth roads.The Protege'
requires a double dose of Drammamine to
avoid the use of a barf-bag enroute.
You literally will find it difficult to
change radio stations or take a sip
from a beverage because of the
pulsating and shakey ride. Both the
dealership and my own personal mechanic
told me there is nothing wrong with the
car it just has the suspension tuned
this way. I will trade mine in as soon
as I can and even though I will loose a
lot of money it will be well worth it
to get rid of the bouncemobile.

Best Features

Can't stop shaking long enough to notice any.

Worst Features

Don't manufacture any more of these jitterbugs.
