I've put over 165K miles on my Protege
and I'm still getting 32 mpg on highway
trips. Very reliable all these years
with only a few repairs required over
the last 9 years of ownership. Still
fun to drive.
Very reliable. Fun to drive. Well
designed dashboard. Good backseat
legroom for compact car.
Seats are hard. Always replacing CV
joint boot every two years (it's fairly
inexpensive to replace, but repairs
annoy me). Air vent direction controls
could be better.
