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


Had my protege almost 1 year now and
have enjoyed all the driving. Racked up
16000 miles on road trips and driving
to work and has been clear sailing thus
far. Milage is still improving on all
types of driving averaging about 28mpg
and I don't get too uncomfortable even
after 6 hours of straight driving.
Babied this car the whole way and it is
built to last. Can't beat the deal they
offered late in the model year.
Moonroof, 6-disc, abs all great options
on a bargain car. Solid driving on
sunny days and very controllable on
snowy streets.

Best Features

Drives great, can't ask for much more on milage, styling is fine. Great value, solid built car, fun to drive. A car that will last.

Worst Features

Pockets behind seats would be nice, auto lock not lit up at night, cup holders need more space (kinda tight). Add some more power, 130 is ok but more would complete the package. Another gear would be nice for H/W...RPM's above 3000....
