    2002 Mazda Protege - ES (M5)

    Pros: The interior is awesome

    Cons: stereo

    Advice: spend the extra for the ES

    The ES has low profile tires, which makes the car handle well. The ride is a little bumpy, but the car is very tight. I purchased two Protege ES's one auto one stick, I like driving both of them. The auto lacks a little poweras opposed to the stick. It is a very well built car.

    2002 Mazda Millenia - PS

    Pros: Very reliable

    Cons: The ride between 20-30 mph is bumpy

    Advice: This is a 2001 model not the S version but overall excelent good buy for a quality vehicle

    This vehicle drove very well on the highway and overall is very comfortable. However it has some road vibrations or unsmooth ride at the lower speed ranges of 20 to 30 MPH.

    2002 Mazda Protege5 - (M5)

    Pros: Sporty Styling, High Performance Handling, Mazda Quality

    Cons: Needs a Sportronic transmission like the Eclipse or the Mercedes E320

    Advice: If you want a Mazda and can't wait for the RX8 buy this car.

    Wonderful Car. Fast, Sporty, Drives like a Go-Kart. Fully loaded it's the best car in its class. I traded my 2000 Celica GTS for a Black P5 and couldn't be happier. It's a little underpowered but in the curves it could hang with anything. Only complaints are minor such as wind noise with the roof rack (especiall with the sunroof open) and the stock stereo could put out a little more power but other than that it's a definite must buy.

    2002 Mazda Protege - ES (M5)

    Pros: Interior design and comfort.

    Cons: Inadequate number of 12V outlets and limited storage.

    Advice: Get the 2.0L engine.

    Style, power, handling, comfort, and features describe the '02 Protege ES. From the sweeping front clear halogen headlamps and fog lights to 16' alloy wheels with low-profile tires to the rear spoiler, it's pleasing to the eye. I like the interior color scheme and the carbon fiber look trim and enjoy the power moon roof. Power from the 2.0L is good paired to the 4sp w/OD and yeilds acceptable gas mileage (25/30). Handling is precise with a solid feel in corners and quick manuevers. Ride is comfortable without excessive road or engine noise. Dash and insurment layout is smart and clean. Comfortable room for 4 is good as long as 'six-footers' are in the front seats. ES model has most all features of other higher-priced and higher-model cars. We test drove Corolla, Sentra, Malibu, CR-V, Neon, and looked at many others (not all in the same line as Protege), but solidly decided on the 2002 Protege ES.

    2002 Mazda Protege5 - (M5)

    Pros: Handling.

    Cons: Lack of power.

    Advice: Bother GReddy or JacksonRacing to build a blower for this car

    Cons: Light on power. Could use a supercharger or turbo system. Pros: Easy to drive. Handles very well. Options are as good as any of the competition and price makes this a bargan.

    2002 Mazda Protege5 - (M5)

    Pros: Handling

    Cons: It's a small car / size

    Advice: Not a full time family car

    I just purchased my Protege5 a few days ago and the best way to describe the drive is with a question...When you were a kid, did you ever wish you could drive your HOT WHEELS ? This car will make you believe you are. If you slow down for turns you're missing the fun. This car will make you wish you lived in the hills of California. I know it's new to me but I hate when I get to where I was going. As for the stereo and the cup holders, come on you bought an economy car, enjoy what it does so well, ZOOMS!
