This amazing car has survived a major ($7k) deer attack when it (my Protege) was just a few months old, a crappy dealer that forgot to replace the oil cap so had 100 miles of driving with no oil, and still -- at 80k I have only replaced tires and brakes. The car handles like a true sports car. I still surprise other drivers, and is comfortable and just unbelievably reliable.
Looks, performance, incredibly reliable, and safe -- we had a major collision and the nose took the entire brunt. Absolutely no intrusion into the passenger area.
better gas mpg (but not at the expense of that beloved zoom zoom power) and better sound insulation
