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


I purchased my 2003 Mazda Protege5 in 10/2002 and have been glad every day since! I have had the clutch replaced in the past 2 years along with the compressor and the catalytic converter and the drivers side widow thingy. I feel like after 7 years, this is normal. The head-light bulbs have been a bit of a nuisance, having to replace frequently, but being able to replace them myself, i'm just out the cost of the bulb, which isn't much.
If you know the car has had regular maintenance, it will not let you down.

Best Features

Moon-roof, Hatchback, 6 disc CD changer, standard, fog lights

Worst Features

I just wish it had a plug-in for my phone to play music.
