Bang for the buck
By Cameron on


2003 Mazda Protege5 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Excellent car for the money. Leather interior, all power doors, windows, moon roof very good stereo w/ 6cd in-dash player, 6 speakers and subwoofer. Excellent mileage average 30 mixed. 73,000 miles and runs/looks exactly as brand new. Complaints include very noisy driving conditions. Engine revs very high, 5 speed needs to be upshifted very quickly to gain speed Car will not win many races. Not the most quiet, compliant ride but again this is a compact car.

Best Features

Interior layout, moonroof, great stereo, great gas mileage, very economical.

Worst Features

Biggest negative is the very noisy engine. Revs at 3500+ at highway speeds.
