Default mazdaspeed protege?

So since I had to trade in the 3 I have been on the look out for a new car, or a diffenrent car. I am between honda, acura or a mazdaspeed protege. So I just wanted some peoples opinions on the protege, What do you think.

I looked into them, they look cool, but the engines are really weak and they don't have that much power.

I did notice the lack in power. Its only pushing about 170 hp. I like the fact of how rare they are. Also I noticed most are in minnesota or wisconsin, and all I think about then is rust.

Yea, but you'll deal with rust on Hondas even worse unless you get something fairly new.

They are really nice actually but like was said earlier a lil low on power. You can find one with a forged rebuild for around 8-10k tho check www.mazdas247.com
