Best Decision I could have made!
By TR on


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


I got this car new in '02. Candy apple red with leather! I love it, love it, love it! It has been a great car. Always get looks and compliments from young guys b/c of the sweet wheels. Have 156K miles on it and am getting a new car now but only because I am getting tired of hauling stuff for other people ---fold down the seats and this car will a twin size bed, an armchair, 20 clowns and 1 elephant. I'm getting a 2 seater so no one can ask me to help them move ever again!

Best Features

Sporty look, huge interior space, comfortable back seat, great gas mileage, fun to drive!

Worst Features

The only problem I've had is needing new headlights a lot and getting new low profile tires. The low profile tires don't take much to blow. Other than that, I'd feel safe driving this car to 200K miles! Great car for high school kid or college student! Safe but fun.
