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


i had a 03 protege dx for about 5 years...would still have it but someone rear ended me and totaled it. pro's- good gas mileage..great head on look...reliable con's- poor seal on windows lets water it...not alot to it so highway and windy driving can create some excitement...lots of whistling and humming noises come from the engine at around 60k miles.... put around 50k on this...not major repairs...replaced brake pads once...tires once...changed the oil...never stranded or failed on me...some minor issues but a solid car for the category.

Best Features

head on look, gas usage, reliable, trunk seems big

Worst Features

noisy engine+trans, poor seals on windows creating noise and leaks
