I loved this car! Bought it from my
cousin at 60,000 miles. Drove it for 8
months and crashed it (great testement
to the power in this little engine). I
was devastated. A little weak on low-
end power coming out of dead stops.
But driving and passing in the fast
lane is a breeze. Plenty of trunk
space. No weird noises, smells or
vibrations coming from under the hood
or anywhere else. I had a 5sp manual
and loved it. Totally solid piece of
machinery. Looked for another Protege
to replace it.
Great fun to drive. Zippy for a little
car. Very reliable.
