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


I bought this car used, and have loved it ever since. Very reliable - the car has 80k miles on it, and other than normal wear n tear, everything is great! It's a blast to drive, and I really look for curves to really enjoy the handling.

Best Features

Steering and handling are superb, as nice as other, more expensive cars I've owned. Supportive seats - I'm 6'1" and it's very comfortable for me. Love the style of it, too, and the fact that they aren't all over like other models. 5 speed is smooth.

Worst Features

Wind noise with roof racks can be excessive. Could really use a 6th gear for highway cruising. Even obeying posted limits, it hits over 3,500 rpms.
