Will not be shopping for another Protege

Vehicle
2003 Mazda Protege DX 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
Review
A few days ago, my Protege was completely totaled by another driver in a very minor accident. So, its durability is questionable. Within the first year of owning it, I had a reoccurring problem with moisture on the inside of the car. Whenever it would rain, wells in the trunk would fill with water with no drainage route. Windshield took forever to defrost/fog. In the winter ice would form on the inside of the windshield -not a fabulous prerequisite to my morning commute. The weather stripping began to peel from the passenger door, and the door handle became loose one winter. Also, the car would rattle whenever stopped in traffic.
Favorite Features
It was very comfortable and fun to drive, great sound system.
Suggested Improvements
No major problems with the car, just an adequate number of small annoyances that will keep me from replacing it with another.
