    2002 Chevrolet S-10 - LS 4x2 Extended Cab

    Pros: ZR2 package, locker, 3rd door, POWER, looks, stout unit, 3:73's

    Cons: the stock mats don't fit well with the floor undulation

    Advice: buy molded floor mats to save your carpet

    Surprisingly awesome ride from a 4x4. Tracks great for having 31x10.50's on it. Plenty of torque to merge onto the highway or pass just about anything. 4 wheel anti lock disc brakes will stop this thing just as fast as it gets started. Very capable off road vehicle that will get you there in style. Works just as well going out on the town.

    2002 Jaguar XJ8 - Sport

    Pros: wood interior, headlights

    Cons: rear seats are too firm

    Advice: get an XJR :)

    I used to own a 1989 XJ6...this car has completely shooke me! Jaguar is probably the best car on the planet in its class! only a Bentley could beat it! my Jaggy had 120 000 miles when i had to sell it, no serious problems whatsoever! the ride is super-comfortable, engine is quiet and powerful, sharp turns were no problems even at law-breaking speeds! so why buy a boring mercedes or bimmer, get a grown-up car, start respecting yourself!

    2002 Subaru Impreza - 2.5RS (M5) Sedan

    Pros: Auto shut off headlights

    Cons: Stock stereo, it's kinda weak

    Advice: If you get it, keep it clean and looking good. Baby it.

    I'm 21 and my car is my baby. It handles better than anything I've ever driven, and is the smoothest ride I've ever been in as well. I love that it has the 'get-up-and-go' when I want it and the 'whoa!' when I need it. As far as the looks go, mine doesn't look like the picture, it looks better with rounded headlights and a smooth hood. It also has no fog lamps, but rather openings for them, but those are covered. So I love the way it looks. It has indeed turned the head of many envious mini-van driving fathers, and guys my age as well.

    2002 Kia Sedona - EX

    Pros: Rear air

    Cons: The rear seats aren't stowable within the van.

    Advice: Compare value to similar models!

    The van is reasonably priced with all of its options. The model we drove had leather interior, sunroof, two tone body molding etc. The van comes equipped with 8-way driver seat and 4-way passenger seat auto. Rear air/with vent over every seat. The rear vent windows are elec as well as everything else[except the two side doors:(] The van has plenty of leg room, front and back. I was amazed at how quiet it was inside. Roadnoise is minimal and the engine is undetectable. This is really an amazing vehicle. Honda Odyssey minus the stowable rear seats, but $10,000 less.

    2002 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 - 4x2

    Pros: The styling, the performance and just the sheer size of it.

    Cons: Slightly difficult to park and has a rear blind spot.

    Advice: If you want a hard-core rugged performance vehicle that will turn heads, this is the vehicle for you!

    I was a little unsure about the size of the vehicle having always owned small cars but within one week I was loving every over-sized minute of it!

    2002 Oldsmobile Alero - GLS Sedan

    Pros: All the AUTO Stuff - door locks - lights

    Cons: No arm rest

    Advice: After approx 1 month of driving - I luv it.

    For me this works ... small, comfortable and easy to drive. Handles nice.
