The 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.
Air 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!!!
