I drive my protege real hard, keeping
those RPM's up all the time and the
thing just handles great. I bag on the
car all the time and it doesn't get
problems. Its a very reliable car, even
more so if you don't beat it to hell
like i do. This is a very good car for
just getting around in or ur teenagers
first car. I would recommend it to
anyone. It could do with a lil more
pwoer though, but its not hard to add a
few mods like a custom intake and a
turbocharger and my lil protege has
bout 175 hp. Thats a terrific gain from
the stock 105hp, with still great fuel
mileage. i estimate my car to at least
get 36 mpg.
the plain simple layout of the car,
great for working on, lots of space for
sub-compact sedan, very tight steering
and good handling. Runs very well, and
very reliable. And its not a bad
looking car either.
Making the stick engines a tiny bit
bigger, just for that extra needed lil
kick to the throttle response.
