I love my Mazda
By supermom1450 on
2000 Mazda Protege LX 4dr Sedan
Our 1992 Buick Regal just died and we needed a 2nd vehicle..bad. Since I'm the chauffeur, I needed something that was good on gas so I could drive the kids around 6 days a week to their various activities as well as maintain my 3 jobs. I love how she handles corners and I wish she were a stick but she's not. We have a lot of snow in New Brunswick and she handles better in the snow and ice than our 3.1L Dodge Grand Caravan. She has such a sporty feel and my kids find her more comfortable than the van. She really likes to go "Zoom Zoom". She has under 150,000km, and she starts up very easily in -25C. When she goes to Mazda heaven I'll be getting another one..sorry GM.
The 60/40 fold down seats, good trunk size, the sporty feel, how she handles in the snow/slush/ice, great leg room - even for my 6'1" husband.
