Pros: the bud vase
Cons: cup holders
Advice: test drive one and you will fall in loveAn amazing experience that I enjoyed....It was very fun to learn bout all the features....A great drive so I bought one!!
Cons: It's a small car / size
Advice: Not a full time family carI just purchased my Protege5 a few days ago and the best way to describe the drive is with a question...When you were a kid, did you ever wish you could drive your HOT WHEELS ? This car will make you believe you are. If you slow down for turns you're missing the fun. This car will make you wish you lived in the hills of California. I know it's new to me but I hate when I get to where I was going. As for the stereo and the cup holders, come on you bought an economy car, enjoy what it does so well, ZOOMS!
Pros: Exterior looks, interior comfort, stereo.
Cons: a little high priced (30k), could have a little more power, small back seats.
Advice: Drive it, listen to stereo, get the choice trim levelThis is a great mid range, mid size SUV. I love almost everything about it. It looks so nice from the outside with the choice trim level wheels and the two tone is nice to. It is the perfect height and looks well balanced. The interior is really luxurious with the leather, sunroof, and the stereo system is awesome. I had a 99 integra before the explorer sport and I was worried I would have trouble driving a bigger vehicle but it is no problem. I was surprised at the great turing radius and it has enough power to do whatever you want with it. The only bad things about it are I think the back seats are kind of small and it could have some more power, I have to raally stomp on the gas to go anywhere quickly like the freeway onramp. This is the perfect car for someone who wants something bigger than a car but smaller than a full size SUV
Pros: Appearance, the quality of material & components and technological features.
Cons: Lack of additonal exterior and interior color chocies.
Advice: If you're looking for overall quality, attention to detail and a good value, purchase any Honda product.Overall ride quality: smooth, quiet and very controlled. Love the powerful V6 power-train this car has. Also, love the car overall appearance and form.
Pros: Electronic Shift On the Fly
Cons: Difficult to wash the windshield if you are height challenged. Vehicle is taller than most pick-ups in its class.
Advice: Take a test drive and order one to your needs.I received my ordered 2002 just before Christmas and what a dream come true this vehicle is! The 1500 SLT Plus rides and handles like a car. I ordered the towing package, chrome step rails, solid tunnel cover, chrome exhaust tip, wind deflectors for the windows and hood along with mud flaps. This vehicle looks just as sharp as it handles. My FIRST PICKUP and I am not sorry in the least. One minor feature I wish was available and that is the ability to control the direction of the heat for both driver and passenger. At the moment, you can control only the heat, but not the direction of the flow.
Pros: Exterior appearance
Cons: Lack of get up and go in higher gears
Advice: OZ rally edition excellent all around carThe OZ rally edition is beautiful inside and out...eye catching exterior and interior. Excellent handling very good gas mileage, due to 2.0 engine 4 cyl. The ONLY thing disappointing to me was my old car (1987 2.0 liter 4 cyl Honda Prelude) has more get up and go. This to me is still pretty trivial with all included accesories. Lancer is brand new in the US, gets alot of attention, especially with the Yellow color/rear spoiler. Very happy with this car.
Cons: Insuring the thing, seeing others pulled up next to you
Advice: Try one out, you will like it.It didn't cost as much as a BMW or lexus, but definielty drives like one! I tested many cars this time around, but the Celica GT-S took the cake. The car sounds, handles, and looks like a sports car, and turns heads on the road like one too.
