A really Great Little Car

ReviewIn the 80's, Mazda offered the GLC: Great Little Car. But my '91 Protege has that one beat! I've driven it for 12 years/168,000 miles. Yes, it's needed some major repairs (manual xmission, brakes, head gasket), but nothing else has gone wrong with it. And, it's more fun to drive than many so-called "sports" cars. Great handling; wonderful sounding engine. Fairly comfy seats. Good ergonomics. Can't beat it!
Best FeaturesThe DOHC engine, above all: sweet- sounding; responsive above 2,500 rpm; reliable as the day is long. The manual transmission and shift linkage: solid, positive, easy.
Worst FeaturesA little more low-end grunt, if you please. Engine comes on strongly above 2,500 rpm, but has little pull below that.
