I did maticulous research for my very
1st car, and all leading magazines
pointed to the Mazda Protege. I found
the "ES" version much more appointing
than the other trim lines; Plus it had
a larger engine. It's been very
reliable. I really enjoy this car; i
slapped on a bra on the car; and it
looks 100% better; some don't recognize
my car without it!
Great radio/CD system. interior and
trunk space. Intrument display. Turning
radius. 4-wheel disk brakes. seat
More pep please; the automatic sucks
out most of it's pep. Automatic
transmission is a bit sluggish;
sometimes it can't decide to shift up
or down. the alloy wheels can be a pain
to clean; many spokes. fuel economy
could be a bit better.
