    2002 Mazda Protege5 - (M5)

    Pros: Handling/performance/comfort.

    Cons: Cargo space can be a tad limiting at times.

    Advice: Get ready to have fun (and yet be practical at the same time)!

    I absolutely love this car! I have had it for about six months. I bought it because I was looking for something that would fit my growing family (4 year old and newborn), but I was NOT going to become the minivan/SUV type of parent. I'm very much a kid at heart, and wanted a car to reflect that. The handling and performance are on a par (or better) as more expensive cars that I have test driven. At times, the cargo space is a bit limiting, but that's a rare occasion. And it looks incredibly cute....it continues to turn heads. I'm a loyal Mazda owner (my most recent was a 90 626), so I know the car is going to be a reliable performer for years to come.

    2002 Mazda Protege - LX (M5)

    Pros: The sunroof/side impact/abs package is awesome.

    Cons: Lack of trunk button on remote. Also, the security system is really sensitive

    Advice: Make sure you can handle the legroom in the back

    So far I love this car. I have the LX model, the ES was a bit too expensive for what I could get right now. I might have to upload another review, but so far, and that's only a few hundred miles, I really like it. The driver seat adjusts will enough that I can find a good position for my back, as opposed to my Saturn SL2. The only drawback I find so far is no remote trunk button and the cup holders are for cups. No bottled water here. Tight turn and it's out.

    2002 Mazda Protege5 - (M5)

    Pros: The handling is fantastic

    Cons: Noise from the open sunroof

    Advice: The options are well worth the extra money

    I love this car!!!! It looks great, drives fantastic, and for the size of the vehicle has lots of space for me, my girlfriend and our stuff. Price had a lot to do with my decision, and for the price I paid I feel that I have got a very good deal. It is great on gas mileage, even on a short commute. I have had a lot of people ask me about the car, they like the look of it. Other drivers of the P5 have said they love it too, and being a Brit, i love it's European styling.

    2002 Mazda Protege5 - (M5)

    Pros: Handling, Braking, Ride Quality & Appearance

    Cons: The people who stare at my car

    Advice: Order yours today

    Get one. How often do you actually see this car. I'm already tired of people calling my car the Matrix. This is the underdog of small wagons. Power isn't everything. This car is fast in curves but not a red light racer. Sure there will be aftermarket parts but right now this car is already a winner
