    Pros: The quite ride.

    Cons: The problems that have occurred with the computer.

    Advice: It's a fine SUV and I would recommend it over all other SUV's.

    2002 Hyundai Sonata - Base (M5)

    Pros: the overall affordability

    Cons: ABS not standard

    Advice: go to a dealer to see and test drive yourself.

    Of all the cars we tested, this one really had it all. It looks great - I turn heads everywhere I go. The drive is so smooth and quiet - luxury quality. And with the 5 year/60k warranty, I will actually have it paid off before the warranty expires. This is the happiest I've ever been with a new car purchase. The best part, the closest Hyundai dealership is 60 miles from our town, so the salesman did all of our financing over the phone and then actually drove the car to us the same evening.

    2002 Chevrolet Cavalier - LS Sedan

    Pros: good gas mileage

    Cons: head room

    Advice: it is a great buy for he money

    The car handled nicely. It is easy to park. It was also fun to drive. I am about 5'19' and could have used more headroom.

    2002 Lincoln Navigator - 4x4

    Pros: RIDE/POWER

    Cons: CENTER CONSOL TAKES UP TOO MUCH ROOM

    Advice: TRY THR EXPEDITION FIRST

    BIG POWERFULL AND GENERALLY SPACIOUS ALTHOUGH CENTER CONSOLE TAKES UP A LOT OF HIP ROOM. DETAIL ITEMS; DOOR FIT,PAINT ETC DOESN'T MATCH UP TO HIGH STANDARD IMPORTS

    2002 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 - 4x4

    Pros: Conversion from a SUV to a truck in a flash!

    Cons: Parking the vehicle.

    Advice: Drive it and you will love it!

    It drives like a luxury car. The steering has a little play in it, but manageable. The get up and go of the vehicle is not that great. Pf course, I like speed! When driving the Avalanche, you do get alot of head turns! What is that??? This is the look you get on the road! Great SUV! I will not call it a truck!

    2002 Subaru Impreza - WRX (M5) Sedan

    Pros: AWD with tons of torque

    Cons: Vehicle seems less stable @ +110mph due - could be solved w/suspension upgrade

    Advice: Skip carbon fiber trim and get the suspension upgrade + performance muffler

    I replaced my 1998 Honda Prelude Type SH with this vehicle and never looked back. The straight line acceleration is incredible with minimal engine noise (unlike the Prelude VTEC)...and the AWD allows me an additional 10-20 mph cornering speed on my favorite roads. It is also a very friendly day-to-day driver...easy to get in and out of, 4 doors, large trunk, etc. Acquire one if you have the means. I cannot wait to drive it everyday!!
