2002 Chevrolet TrailBlazer - LT 4x4
Pros: There are so many. If I had to pick one, I would say the automatic lights.
Cons: The only negative I found is the Gas Mileage
Advice: This is a great vehicale. You will love it.I was amazed to see how much it felt like driving a car. I basically do not like driving but this vehicle is absolutely FUN to drive.
2002 Buick Rendezvous - FWD
Pros: Fold down and removable seats plus flat floor providing much cargo space
Cons: The engine lacks power
Advice: Get the versatrak optionThe quality of ride is excellent for a vehicle of its size and capacity; the appearance is good as well. For an active person who wants to transport bikes or skis or trees for that matter, it's great. The one negative is the lack of power when accelerating from a dead stop. The vehicle needs more horsepower at its weight.
2002 Volkswagen Jetta - GLS 2.8L (EOP Week 40) (M5) Sedan
Pros: the V6 engine
Cons: the gas milage
Advice: Beware of the gas milage claimsThis is a truely comfortable car to drive. I've owned the 4 cylinder also and the V6 is much smoother and quieter and plenty powerful. The fit and finish are excellent, although I have had some problems that are a little concerning to me such as the passenger window falling into the door, and the springs under both seats falling out. Minor, but irritating. The biggest surprise has been that the car does no better than 278 miles on a tank of gas, far short of what was claimed. I drive 148 miles each way to work, and have not gotten 300 miles from a tank yet.
2002 Jeep Liberty - Sport 4x4
Pros: The reinforced steel cage.
Cons: The door opening width.
Advice: Its a great nimble 'small' suv with lots of interior room.The Jeep Liberty accelerates quickly and manuveurs like a sports car. I am getting close to 20 mpg on the 3.7l v-6 engine. It has more leg and head room than the Grand Cherokee, which is a plus since I am 6'3'.
2002 Cadillac DeVille - DTS
Pros: Driving position and ergonomics.
Cons: Lack of sunvisor extensions.
Advice: Learn to use all the features of the vehicle.This car was certainly made with the 1950's-1960's muscle car enthusiast in mind. It provides comfort, power, handling, and overall satisfaction of ownership. It has enough interior room to suit a large man. It is not a kiddie toy.
2002 Audi A4 - T (M5) quattro Sedan
Cons: The time delay between volume and chanel preset. You have to wait for the volume function to clear before you can switch the chanels.
Advice: Buckle upThis car is truly a work of art. It drives great, and it's a head turner.
2002 Dodge Ram 1500 - ST 4x4 Quad Cab Short Box
Pros: Four doors
Cons: There is nothing I like least about this truck
Advice: Get the best of both worldsThis is the right truck for those who are looking to move up, more room, great ride, loaded with tricks and from what I see when on the road...great looking. this is the Sport package with 20' wheels and the H26 option package. Including leather seating with heaters, full Infinity stereo with six speakers. (sounds great ) .
