Review

The Protege 5 is fun and reliable with
lots of "get up and go." I bought mine
with the roof racks which I use to cart
around two 16-ft Kayaks. Even with the
Kayaks on top (which act like two huge
sails), the gas mileage is great. The
fold-down seats provide extra cargo
space when camping or hauling materials
for my many home remodeling projects.
Additionally the Protege 5 comes
equipped with a great sound system.


Worst Features

The cup holders need improvement. Drinks tend to tip over ocassionally - especially in the larger of the two cup holders. Add a cup holder behind the arm-rest for access from the back seat. When the seats fold down, they should provide a "level" surface.

Review

I am the type of person who sometimes
experiences "buyers remorse". One thing
I do know is that probably one of the
smartest things I have ever done is buy
this vehicle! I can honestly say I
never have experienced "buyers remorse"
with the purchase of this exciting &
fun to drive vehicle. If there was
only one thing to complain about, it
would be the somewhat noisey drive, but
that's what the stereo is for!!:)


Best Features

I love the handling & sleek looks of this car. Need I say more??


Worst Features

The ride is somewhat nosiey as far as hearing the road when driving.

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


Review

Very impressed. Great handling, very
reliable, good performance. I love the
silver with the dark interior. Closer
to a hatch than a wagon.


Best Features

16" wheels, Nardi steering wheel, fit and finish.


Worst Features

Stereo not up to the standard of the car. Roof rack has serious windnoise.

Review

I've had my mp5 for almost a year and I
love it. The build quailty is great, no
squeaks or rattles, and the engine has
run flawlessly. I drive around 50 miles
per day, on country roads, and get 28
mpg. It's a great looking "economy car"
for money.


Best Features

Interior and exterior styling. Peppy engine. Gas milege.


Worst Features

More ponies-(180-200hp), Tougher paint (scratches easily), Better access to oil filter
