96 Protege DX 1.5L 5 speed manual 86K miles

1996 Mazda Protege DX 4dr Sedan
Review
Great economy sedan. Sips gas, lacks acceleration, good handling and braking. Car is severely underpowered, lacks many creature comforts. A/C works VERY well and the car gets me to and from work. It is pretty good on the highway, but in stop and go driving it is annoying because of the poor acceleration. Lightweight sedan is highly functional as a commuter car. I replaced the tires, brakes, and exhaust since 2003 and performed routine maintenance. That's it and it keeps going strong. I will continue to drive it for as long as possible because of the rising cost of gas.
Favorite Features
Fuel economy, spirited handling (once you get moving), light weight, 5 speed manual transmission gets the most out of tiny engine.
Suggested Improvements
No interior trunk release is annoying.
