2000 Mazda Protege ES 4dr Sedan

Review

I like my 2000 MAZDA Protege ES, but weird quirks with it. Driving 65 mph - there is a whistle that screams through the dash vents. Played with the controls-nothing helps. Funny smell from air conditioning (no dead creatures found). Smell is sickly sweet. Heat also creates strange smell. Rear passengers stay hot all the time. Problems with auto entry. (Electrical?) Moon/sun roof also creates a screaming sound. Can correct by holding down the unit with hand. Shouldn't have to do that. No Umph. Try to merge into highway traffic is slow (manual shift). Hamster drive.

Favorite Features

Good visability. Good styling / good looking car. Firm body. Seats comfortable.

Suggested Improvements

Better horsepower. Zoom-zoom does not apply. Car has no guts.
