I've been very impressed with the
Mazda Protege's performance and
quality. Everything seems solid and
well-made. My mileage is in the high
30's and even though it only has the
1.6 liter engine, it is really peppy.
I love the tight throw on the manual
transmission and the brakes which
begin to grab almost immediately when
Move the lock/unlock button further
away from the handle. I've locked the
doors accidentally several times by
brushing the mechanism.
