The ES 2.0 version of this Protege is a quick, good handling sedan with good, responsive braking and handling. A couple of notes, based on 12 years driving this car:
1. Getting the right tires is key to the handling. The speed rating is less important than stickiness. Once I got a good, sticky set of tires the handling was excellent.
2. Watch out for "Mazda rust." The rear wheel wells is where you''ll notice it. But it spreads, and with cars built on unibody frames nowadays this can be a real problem. Mazdas have had this problem for years with no apparent concern by Mazda.
