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


This is a great little car. So fun to drive and extremely reliable. I drove a Honda Civic for several years before I bought this car and what a difference with the Mazda. It’s so much more comfortable and driver-friendly.

Best Features

Interior design, great steering, good on gas, nice styling overall.

Worst Features

I’ve had trouble with tires - first replaced at only 20k and I couldn't find the right size anywhere. Now at 46k, they need to be replaced again. Also, there is some rust along the lower inside part of the hatch. Could be from water sitting there after I wash it? Seems too new to have rust.
