Very Impressed! — Great car for the price. Very reliable, (80K and no problams.) Fun to drive. Looks sporty for a small car.

Pros: Everything but road noise and rough ride.

Cons: Road noise and a rough ride. (because of low pro tires.)

Awsome Car, Even With An Auto Tranny. 2.0 L4 Just Plain Rocks — Interior is beautiful, car is super reliable, styling is very nice. Engine has a lot of torque at any rpm (including low), which makes it a better engine than the already great 1.8 l4 of the previous generations.No rust problem, NOTHING on it broke in over 6 years owning it, with the exception of a stupid anti-pollution device, the egr valve.

Pros: Everything

Cons: Car is addictive and you'll find yourself revving it all the time (which doesn't help fuel consumption hehe).

Fun Yet Practical Car — This car isn't the most exciting of vehicles yet has great performance for a sedan. It looks fairly sporty and drives wonderfully. The Protege is a very practical car, getting good gas mileage and having adequate room for four people plus their things, yet it holds its own when you want to be a little sporty. A very good car for every day use, or just to go out and enjoy a drive. Overall, it is very low cost for maintaining the vehicle. Especially with an average 30 MPG. I've had a few things that have needed to be replaced, but nothing more then what you'd expect with maintaining a vehicle. I'd definitely say this is a good one and lives up to Mazda's fun and "Zoom-Zoom" nature.

Pros: Pretty much everything.

Cons: The gear ratio runs the RPM's a little high for my taste when driving at highway speeds.  Still gets great gas mileage though.  So not too much to complain about
