My Second Protege

Vehicle2001 Mazda Protege LX 4dr Sedan (1.6L 4cyl 5M)
ReviewThe first "Protee" I had got 240,000 on it before the trannie blew...rebuilt it, and and original engine has 300,000 on it. But it had become a little cranky over the years, so I thought it was time for a new one. (I sure got my dough out of the first!) It's a great little urban runabout, ultra-reliable and I get about 25 MPG city, 31 HWY. Seems to have enough pep with the 2.0 for Southern California freeways. The ride's a little stiff, and it transmits a bit of noise on rough freeways (which is nealy all of the local decrepit Caltrans freeways), but overall a very nice handling machine.
Best FeaturesAir conditioning seems very good. Don't ever let anyone tell you you don't need it in San Diego! Sanity prevailed and a BLACK trunk liner was used. Thanks!!!
