    2002 Land Rover Freelander - SE

    Pros: Handling

    Cons: Would like more seat adjustment.

    Advice: Compare HIGHLANDER and JEEP

    Solid as a rail on the freeway, excellent cornering. Both were a very pleasant surprise. Brand new I got 20 MPG highway which will improve. Surprising quiet (road noise) on the freeway as well. I am very happy with power and pick-up. Short on cargo space. Arm rests would be nice. Excellent quality and finish. Would have wanted seat bottom tilt . These only go forward and rear and back told. I am very happy with it.

    2002 Subaru Impreza - WRX (M5) Sedan

    Pros: The acceleration and handling

    Cons: The Back seats should fold down

    Advice: Get one fast....they are underpriced!

    I just traded in my '99 Cougar V6 for the WRX Sedan. While I enjoyed the Cougar, this WRX BLOWS IT AWAY!! The power, feel and handling of the car are amazing. It makes you feel like you own the road. I like the unassuming external appearance; it makes me smirk to pull up next to a Mustang, the new Acura, or even a BMW, knowing who's car has more giddy up.

    2002 Hyundai Santa Fe - GLS FWD

    Pros: style and design. car turns a lot of heads with its unigue design.

    Cons: no option of leather on 2wd

    Advice: drive it !!!! it sells itself.

    looks of a suv, but the nice quiet, smooth ride of a car. comparison shopped many of the competitors mid-size suv's and after all factors were weighed in, the sante fe came out ahead. great car at a great price and excellent warranty. i did research also on internet for dealer cost vs. msrp and offered dealer price of dealer cost and they took it with no haggling. another savings of $1850 off the already appealing sticker price. as i was writing up paper work on my new sante fe, 3 more sold while i was there. they actually rolled the one out of the showroom which sold. hottest car i have ever seen move at a dealer.

    2002 Ford F-250 - XLT 4x4 SD Super Cab Short Box

    Pros: Fuel mileage & comfort

    Cons: Bad vibration & numerous rattles in doors & windows

    Mine equipped w/diesel. Has bad vibration on initial take off. FMC says this is normal. If this is normal they should make people aware of this before selling.
