ReviewI bought my Protege to replace my aging 94 Escort GT. I have nothing but praise for the vechicle. The handling is superb especially with 4 wheel discs and 16 inch wheels on the ES. My only complaint is lack of power which can easily be fixed with some light mods (air filter and exhaust). I'm also planning to install a strut tower bar with some stiffer springs and new shocks. For 15 grand it's the best car on the market.
Best FeaturesI'd have to say my favorite thing is the was the car feels so connected to the road... it's the best thing going for 15 grand.
Worst FeaturesMore power. And not just for the turbocharged version. Why can't Mazda get a 170 hp out of a normally aspirated engine?
