    2002 Mitsubishi Galant - LS

    Pros: The looks. It is different from the usual Accord or Camry

    Cons: 4C has little power, no 60/40 split rear seat, little leg room for rear passengers

    Advice: Test drive both the 4C and V6 as well as the Accord or Camry. For a 4C the competition has more power

    Thoroughly impressed with the looks and the interior but the 4C leaves a lot to be desired. If you are looking for power this is not it. The car seems to hesitate when you pass on the highway and has little get up and go from a stop. The V6 would probably be your better option

    2002 Ford Mustang - Standard (100A) Coupe

    Pros: V-6

    Cons: Interior Room

    Advice: Test Drive it.

    Just bought a 2002 Mustang Coupe. I love the car. It has great finish, plenty of power and torque - even with the V-6, and a great price for what you get.

    2002 Volkswagen Jetta - GLS L (M5) Sedan

    Pros: Egronomic controls

    Cons: Monsoon radio and speakers cannot be simply updated or changed w/o modifications.

    Advice: Listen for rattling noises in the doors (both driver and passenger side).

    Be sure and test drive all models. That way you can determine gas mileage versus pickup. My recommendation is to buy the 1.8 T since it is the best of both. You get pickup when needed as well as very good gas mileage (24 mpg city/30 mpg highway). I would also recommend if you get the 1.8 T get the sport handling package and the 17' wheels.

    2002 Nissan Altima - 2.5 S (M5)

    Pros: the tail lights

    Cons: the cheap interior

    Advice: dealers won't haggle to much on the price

    I was very impressed with the vehicles outside appearance, but after getting inside and looking around I would say Nissan has a long way to go as far as the interior is concerned. The dash and controls are very 'plasticy' and cheap, I was very un-impressed overall with the vehicle.

    2002 Volkswagen Jetta - GLS L (M5) Sedan

    Pros: 1.8 T engine

    Cons: rattles

    Advice: Test drive first.

    I have had my 2002 1.8T manual for 4 months. So far there has been no problem except some rattles on bumpy road at the drive's and passenge's doors. It's fun to drive, very comfortable, and safe. With the peppy 1.8T engine it accelerates fast. The fuel economy is quite good - so far it averaged 28-30 MPG with mix driving (10% city and 90% highway). I love the car!
