I THINK THE PROTEGE IS THE BEST IN IT' S CLASS FOR THE YEAR
2000. I OWN THE ES 1.8L PROTEGE (LX IN CANADA) WITH ALL THE
OPTIONS IE: TOURING PACKAGE (POTENZA TIRES, MOONROOF,
I HAVE NOW 60,000KM ON IT AND IT'S BEEN GREAT OWNING THE CAR.
I AM AN AGGRESSIVE/FAST DRIVER SO I REALLY PUSH THE CAR AND
IT NEVER DISAPPOINTS ME.
I CANT BELIEVE THAT SOME SOME PEOPLE ACTUALLY COMPLAIN
ABOUT THIS CAR. THE PROTEGE OWNERS I SPOKE TO REALLY LIKE
THIS CAR AND ARE PROUD TO OWN IT.
IT'S GOT VERY GOOD HANDLING, ACCELERATION ,THE ENGINE IS
PEPPY ALWAYS REVVING NICELY. QUALITY /MODERN LOOKING AND
SPACIOUS INTERIOR AND NO CHEAP PLASTICS....UNLIKE GM CARS.
VERY RELIABLE CAR.
THE CAR LOOKS CLASSY AND MORE EXPENSIVE ON THE OUTSIDE.
I HAVENT HAD ANY TROUBLE WITH IT...
OF COURSE, MORE HP WOULD BE WELCOME BUT FOR THIS PRICE
RANGE ITS VERY GOOD. THE STEREO IS VERY AVERAGE , POTENZA
TIRES ARE CAUSING A LOT OF DRONINGNOISE. THE CAR IS A LITTLE
TOO LOUD ON THE INSIDE.
