    An Excellant Car And Fun To Drive. It Has Power,acceleration And Good Braking Power. — This car is fun to drive, it has power.Other than normal maintenance it does not cost me a lot of money to maintain . Had MAZDA come with a solid wheel hubcaps, and uses 87 octane gas, I would give the will a passing mark of 100 This car of mine has giving me more than 12 years of coninous service.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: I am still driving my 2001 Mazda Protege 2.0 ES. It has now 202000 km.

    Cons: The car wheel hubcaps is the worst I have come across,they break out easily, all my
    hubcaps are badly broken.The tires were very costly to replace,the size and speed
    rating V are not readily available.It uses 91 or up octane gas.
