best car in its class, hands down. the
engine isn't going to win any awards
for refinement and there are a few more
interior rattles than i'd prefer
(although that may be due to autoXing),
but in terms of styling, handling,
braking and overall driving experience,
this car has it all over Civics,
Corollas, Sentras and the like.
Peppy engine, STRONG brakes and sharp,
precise handling. Fun to drive
factor. "Protege people" are a kind of
a few more ponies please, along with a
few less engine dBs at high rpms.
initial depreciation is a killer.
