This is a fun car to drive .. not as fuel efficient as my 96 Protege was but the better looks on the 2003 model negates the lower mpg rating for me. Still 34 highway/24 city not bad .. roomy comfortable car despite being so small with good sound system - highly manuverable as well with tight steering
Front grill work and overall look from front is exceptional - the mag wheels are an attractive feature - also the overall stance of the car gets a second glance
paint issues seem to be in need of improvement ... no rust but some little bubbling going on - otherwise nothing negative to say.
