I have about 2500 miles on my Protege,
and have to say that it is a great
little car. I am having fun driving it
around. I have a DX with an automatic
transmission, and it has great pick-
up. I test drove the Dodge Neon, Chevy
Cavalier, Ford Focus, and the Protege
beat them hands down.
aggressive looks, auto trans is mated
to the engine perfectly, has more than
only 2 gripes: it takes a long time
for the air conditioner to cool down
the car, and for those who rest their
arm on the doorsill, it may wear away
the fabric on the door. Mazda should
have continued the plastic across the
top of the door.
