This car is the steal of the century.
I bought mine new in '03 as it was one
of the few '02's left at the dealership
and got a great discount on it. For an
econonomy car price you get one of the
most fun and well built cars on the
road. If I had $25k to spend on a car,
I think I'd still would have bought my
5spd Protege ES. This car has so much
poise and is so easy to drive at any
speed. It handles like a miata, looks
great, is comfy and man does it love to
play! This is my 3rd Protege and
definitely the best so far. I highly
recommend this car.
