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.

This vehicle is very reliable. It has great gas mileage. I also has good pickup when on highways. There is enough storage space for my needs. It is easy to park. It looks cute and sporty. The hatchback storage space has a excellent cover to conceal items. It appears solid to those looking into the hatchback but is actually light weight and easy to remove. The maintenance costs are quite low. I like the sunroof versatility of closed, vented, moonroof, or open. I can have full view of the sky, no view, open air or partial. It is a nice feature. The car itself is very low to the ground and can be difficult to get in and out of. The low profile tires are more expensive and harder to find than regular tires. The glass seals on the dash board windows have weak seals and I do not know if that... (more)
Story
It is amazing how much you can fit in this little car. I have put six people in this car loaded it to the rafters for a 500 mile trip. It still got great gas mileage and I had excellent visibility. The travelers did feel a bit cramped upon the end of our journey but it was with mirth and alacrity.
Pros
The good gas mileage, reliability and low maintenance costs are my favorite advantages to owning this car. I also really like the hatchback storage space design because it has a excellent cover to conceal items and provides protection against inviting vandalism.
Cons
The top negative of this vehicle is how low to the ground it is and the cost of the low profile tires. Being so low it is a challenge for some people to get in and out of the car. Specifically, very tall, big, or elderly people have difficulty entering or exiting the vehicle.

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.
