Never go American again!

Vehicle
2003 Mazda Protege LX 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
Review
Went from a 97 Pontiac Sunfire GT to this car (LX model), it's the best move I ever made! The car handles extremely well and turns with no effort. The Pontiac's interior cracked and jittered from day one (bought it new) especially on rougher roads,fit and finish on Protege is better than friend's BMW. Drove Corolla, Civic and Cavalier; no comparison! Corolla & Civic are too expensive and need I say what I thought about the Cavalier? Buy American? When we design them better, I will. Protege is inexpensive and drives extremely well for an economy car. love the 5 speed, it's like buttah! Toyota and Honda, BEWARE!
Favorite Features
5 speed, A/C is great, fit and finish, great prices on options like ABS and side airbags, STEERING, WOW!
Suggested Improvements
soften suspension just a bit, balance engine to cancel vibration at 70mph or give it a 6th gear (engine is strong enough for that), light up all power window and lock buttons, redesign keyless fob, hit panic too many times
