    2002 Mitsubishi Diamante - LS (A4)

    Pros: Powerful engine, overall quality.

    Cons: This car needs to be promoted more in TV ads.

    Advice: Go get it, you won't be sorry. Guaranteed.

    I went in to the Mitsubishi dealer in order to get the Galant, but once I saw this Black Diamanate with Tan Leather I got pretty much hooked up right there... This car is the best value you can get for your money, it has all the 'extra' features of other makes as 'standard'. I used the 0-0-0 promotion of Mitsubishi and I just got the car with no money down, no interest, no payments till Feb. 2003 ! Wow.

    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.
