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


Bought this car brand new in spring of 03 and couldn't be happier with it. I have kept up with most suggested maintenance and oil changes and have not had to service at all except for brake pads! Car has over 60,000 miles and is running wonderfully. Pickup is still excellent, as is fuel economy. LOVE the six disc in-dash CD changer and the stereo quality is good for stock. Only problem is that FM reception isn't the best.

Best Features

Acceleration is quick and manual transmission is very responsive. Very fun to drive!

Worst Features

Power lock switch is only on driver side. It drives my wife crazy. With the headrest up to proper level, it makes it a little harder to check your blind spot when changing lanes.
