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


Overall, a very fine small car. I miss
a stronger A/C that a V6 would
provide. The handling is excellent and
the ride is just firm enough to feel
the road, but not so rough that my
wife can't sleep while I am driving.
The exterior design is sharp! I really
like the 4 year/50,000 mile warranty
also. I have a lot of faith in the
Protege so I don't expect to use the
warranty, but it provides peace of
mind. This is the only new car I have
ever bought that I have not had to
take back to the dealer several times
right away for minor stuff. Built

Best Features

4 wheel disc brakes, ABS, rear view mirror compass/dimmer.

Worst Features

5th gear in the automatic transmission, redesign the key fob so I am not always setting off the alarm.
