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


Having a blast with my MP5 since I bought it early in the summer. Incredible handling has been the best part of the experience so far. My only grumbles are poor fuel economy at highway speeds, not enough vroom, and a lot of suspension shudder when hitting bumps while cornering hard.

Best Features

*Best handling fwd I've ever driven *Supportive Driver's seat *Good fit & finish *Timeless good looks *Great utility and cargo space for extremely compact car

Worst Features

Poor fuel economy at high-rpm highway speeds... would love to have a 6th gear. Tinny stereo. Zippiness at low speeds disappears at highway speeds. Big suspension shudders when hitting big bumps on corners can be unnerving.
