I've been driving this car for almost 4
years. Other than the mass air flow
sensor going out on me, I haven't had
any problems whatsoever. I would
definitely recommend the Protege to
anyone looking for an inexpensive,
comfortable car. I would definitely
consider another Protege (albeit more
power, like the Mazdaspeed version) when
it comes time to buy another car.
Reliability, interior room (including
trunk), gas mileage, comfort.
Defrosters don't work very well. Other
improvements have already been made in
newer Protege models.
