Hind sight says I made a fine pick!

2001 Mazda Protege ES 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
Two thumbs up with my Mazda Protege ES-GT model. Lots of time and thought went into the purchase and we did good. We started looking at the Protege5 but supply and demand didn't work in our favour so we managed to negotiate much better terms for the ES sedan, with the GT package to jazz it up as much as we could. Seven months later, I'm still grinning ear to ear as I love this car.
Sporty look. Great handling. Very comfortable and fun to drive.
The Mazda logo on the grill is a little large for my liking. Especially when I compare the 2001 with the 2000 model. But if that's my only complaint I think I'm going okay.
