Out of all the cars i've owned my mazdaspeed protege is my favorite. Sure it isnt the fastest car in the world but when it comes to style and handling it's hard to find a better car, and with a few minor mods you can turn this car into a speed demon. I turn plenty of heads in this car. Pros: Due to the limited number of production, You'll be the only one on your block. Superb handling, Rivals that of some higher class AWD cars (ie. Subaru WRX, Lancer Evo) This car is fully loaded with an Kenwood 7 speaker system including a subwoofer and amp in a custom inclosure in the trunk and an mp3 cd/wma head unit, RacingHart 5 spoke rims, A tricked out interior with sparco add-ons, an agressive body kit and rear spoiler. Anywhere you look in this car it's got something cool and eye catching. Cons: Extreme torque steer and the steering is very light. Although you get used to it pretty quick. The stereo has tiny buttons and the volume dial tends to be tempermental. It only has 170hp. Although if you drive one it really does feel as if it has quite a bit more. Requires premium fuel which these days can be a bit pricey All and all... I would recomend this car to anyone

The most fun car on the road!

I bought my Mazdaspeed Protege about two years ago, and I have loved every minute with it! The car is more fun to drive than anything I have ever driven (including my father's Ferrari and 67 Jaguar E-Type) It handles like a dream, it accelerates at breakneck speed (don't let the 6.9 sec 0-60 fool you, when this car is rolling and the turbo kicks in you fly), and it's 450 watt stereo bumps! The car was built to race, yet practical enough for everyday use. You will undoubtedly find yourself hoping for red lights so you can let her loose. All in all, great car at any price and a steal at under $11,000 with less then 45,000 miles. Your only disappointment will be when the drive is over!

I love this car, It handles very well in the summer, winter, rain, Everything!!! I can make sharp turns and rides smooth. The fact that it's a four door and turbo charged is the whole package. It is roomy and it is fast! This is a great beginner car or a lovers car. Everyone can enjoy this car from being a bachelor or married. It can be a sporty but family ride. I RECCOMMEND THIS CAR TO ANYONE AND EVERYONE!!!
