I have poured so much money into this
car that I'm ready to get rid of it at
90,000 miles. The 97 models had a
problemn with faulty master cylinders--
very expensive to fix--and I've had
endless little things go wrong. It has
no pickup and drives sluggishly. I do
not recommend the 97 Proteges, and
would nt buy another Mazda based on my
experience with this one.
