I've found the Mazda Protege5 to be a reliable vehicle without too many issues. I had this vehicle since I was a college student and even now, with more than 110,000 miles on its odometer, I feel safe driving it all over the country. The engine runs smoothly, and I haven't had to make any major repairs to it. The seats are comfortable, which is perfect for the long drives I frequently have to make for my job. I got it when it had about 40,000 miles on it, and it's been a great investment. I've only had to replace the windshield once since I've had it, and it can easily go thousands of miles without requiring an oil change. Steering is smooth and efficient as well, and the spare tire that the trunk is equipped with has been a lifesaver as well. I would definitely recommend this vehicle ... (more)
Story
I got stuck on an icy bridge at midnight after the state transportation department shut down the interstate. I was worried the car would slide off, but it didn't!
Pros
This is a very durable vehicle. I've lived in very different climates (desert and mountains) and it's adapted fairly well to all of them. There is also a surprising amount of space once you fold the back seats down; I was able to make an entire interstate move in one trip. It's a smooth ride without much vibration.
Cons
The climate control system isn't perfect, and the vehicle fogs up quite frequently. When this happens, it takes a while for the system to kick in and visibility is impaired for several minutes. Additionally, the car struggles when it has to ascend steep roads and I have trouble accelerating to more than 60 mph in the mountains, meaning I have to stay in the slow lane. It also comes with 2003 technology, so I can't plug in an iPod or phone and play music like you could on a modern car.

When I first got this car I was looking for a very basic and cheap car to get me from point A to point B alive and with A/C. This car pretty much did the job for me. The model is a little bit older, sort of a bridge between the older designs and the sleeker look you see on modern cars. But needless to say, the car did its job admirably.
Story
Driving this to my parents' house for the first time was the greatest feeling ever, because it showed just how far I'd come as a young adult. There's no greater feeling than being autonomous.
Pros
- Spacious. I'm a tall guy, so sitting in a small sedan or something of the sort just really cramps my style (figuratively and literally). - Cargo. This thing could carry quite a bit of cargo with relative ease. Building materials, electronics, pets, you name it. - Passenger comfort. Most sedans can seat five legally, well this thing can do so comfortably; with head space and legroom to spare!
Cons
- Fuel Economy. Here there was something left to be desired, as in the city, the car would suffer in heavy traffic due to constant stopping and going. - Repairs. As an older Japanese export vehicle, this car is a bit unique in its design that makes finding replacement parts and DIY repairs a little bit harder than your run of the mill production sedan. - Model-specific problems. This car seems to have a few issues that are simply just attached to the model that it is. There are fixes, but they can sometimes be a bit of a nuisance to handle.

The Mazdaspeed Protege5 is a pleasure to drive and a wonderful car to own. The transmission, automatic fuel injection and pickup is remarkably smooth, sensitive, and powerful for a car in its class, rivalling the Subaru WRX or Audi RS4/RS5. Adding an audiophile hi fidelity sound system, tinted windows, auto remote starter and alarm, and interior trimmings such as carbon fiber and dash accouterments heightened the sense of style and substance found in the Protege5, the best car I've ever owned and driven. I seriously liked everything about it and still do. The quality in every part and the sum of the whole perform fabulously.
Story
Drove around Oahu many times. Had great memories driving through Waikiki.
Pros
I liked the zoom, the feeling of responsiveness in driving it, the excellent sounds, and the ambiance and atmosphere of the car since I also upgraded the brakes, the exhaust, and the air filter in addition to the engine being full turbo ('Mazdaspeed'). The external look is also fine. The air conditioning superb. Very roomy and comfortable for me.
Cons
That it is not the best in terms of racetrack performance (such as the Subaru WRX or the Audi RS4, RS5, RS6). That when needed, it doesn't have the baggage space of an SUV, pickup truck, van, mobile camper and/or RV.
