I like the drive the Protege offers,
have a milion complaints about the gas
mileage. The car has 12000 miles on it
and still does not give me good mileage
in the city. It does not go beyond 23
miles to a gallon. The overall build is
pretty ok, it is definitely fun to
drive. A few creaks have developed on
the front doors, but the dealer said
that was how these cars were built. The
Accords give better mileage and I feel
a little short changed on that front,
may be I should have got a bigger car.
The engine is now far more noisier, for
12000 miles I am a little disappointed
The audio system is pretty good, the
braking is good, interiors.
Mileage, mileage, mileage...... cannot
say it enough. Fix it Mazda!!
