  • LOVE my '01 Protege ES

    By Arkie on Wednesday, March 17, 2010

    I bought my 2001 Protege ES (2.0L engine, 5 speed manual transmission) used in 2002 with 13K miles. Now, 8 years later, at 90K miles, I love it as much as I did the day I bought it. It is a great "second" car for our family of 4 (2 kids in elementary school). The handling and performance are fantastic for this class. I'm just beginning to think about replacing "Little Red," but after test-driving the cars in today's similar class, I'm disappointed - almost none have the handling and performance I've come to expect in my Protege. (Still like the manual Mazda3, though!) Two minor problems with my '01 Protoge within the last year: (1) ABS system went out; however, the brakes still work fine (cost to repair ABS system was prohibitive, and this was my first ABS auto, so I opted to forego); (2) speedometer went out for no apparent reason. I have had NO other issues with this car. Consumer Reports still lists the 2001 Protege as a "Reliable Vehicle" used car in the $4000-$6000 class. I concur!
  • Great car!

    By Teriann on Friday, June 10, 2016

    I purchased this car from a dear older woman who had to give up driving. I bought it in 2006 with 10,070 original miles with a rear spoiler on it. It currently has 79,213 original miles. I have been quite pleased with the car. It's great on gas mileage around town and long distance. The only negative about this car and I've seen with another in the complex I live in, is that the driver's side passenger door wheel well rusts. It's a defect in the manufacturing of the vehicle, otherwise a great car. Here's my unfortunate thing, a person speeding rear-ended me, and in turn I hit the car in front of me. I am hoping the insurance company does not total my car and it can be fixed, if not I'll be so sad as it's been such a wonderful compact car for me!
