2002 PR5 vs Honda Fit
By mustangleader on


2002 Mazda Protege5 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Bought new 165,000 miles. Read a review by a person who traded in his PR5 for Fit claiming how it was a much better car. Huh? PR5 has more space and is a bigger car. Mileage is slightly better via Fit because it's a smaller engine. Fit owner claims it drives like a go cart. Well, I drove a Fit and no comparison. Stock PR5 still out performs Fit and with some aftermarket things like cold air filter, magna flow system, and computer update for less than $800, the PR5 outperforms fit in every area except for mileage which I get 25 in town, 32-34 on the road depending how fast I drive. If you can get a low mileage PR5, the cost is cheaper than a Fit and these cars last.

Best Features

Sport car agility, looks, leg room, driver seat comfort, ease of shifing 5 speed. CA car and no problems of tires like other reviews in colder areas.

Worst Features

Really none. But if you find stock engine underpower, add a few afmkt items. Cold AF and megna flow system is all you need.
