Mazda #5 by hans on 09/12/2011. Trim: 2003 Mazda Protege LX, Owned 9 years.
Pros: Bought it new oct'02. Easy choice since my '91 protege gave me 306,000 miles without problems. Dealer paid me to keep that one, donated it. '03 is my fifth Mazda! The steering is very responsive, the geometry is so good that I cannot get a squeal tearing around on-ramps.
Cons: Desperately needs 6th gear. The 2 liter is torquey enough for a taller drive. sway bar links rrattle after 70.000n miles,replaced easily.
Overall review: Love it.
