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


I've had the car for 5wks now and have
3k mi already. This car is not all
boring(like Civic and Corolla). The
car is very fun to drive, killer
suspension, and great option packages.
I got all options except for the
autodim mirror and cargo acc. for the
trunk. I've already dropped in an
aftermarket sound system(1-12"
w/250watts, and Boston Acoustics all
around @ 50x4). It could use a little
more HP, but what car couldn't. MPG
could be better for a 2.0 ltr. But,
man this thing RUNS out on the
freeway. This car beats all other cars
in the price range, and I looked at the

Best Features

Interior styling, sunroof, 4 wheel discs, superb handling(almost no sway in the twisties)

Worst Features

a little weak on HP, different tail lights, better gearing of AT (3k rpm at 70mph is too much)
