Test drove other vehicles before i purchased the Protege. Civic, Neon, Corolla, Focus. Was hooked when i drove the Protege. Hugged the road and had plenty of pep. Great on long trips, will drive all day and all night
6-disc CD changer, moonroof, very dependable.
Hard to get to oil filter to change oil, gas mileage of 25-29 is what the sticker says, but not great compared to other econocars.
