Getting firsthand information from an actual car owner is one sure way to get an idea of car performance once it leaves the lot. Autobytel features real consumer reviews that give the unbiased experience of a car.
Pros: Look, feel, value, and re-sale value.
Cons: blind spot
Advice: Do research and shopping online. I hate dealing with lying salesmen!Great! Loved the look and feel. Only negative: A design flaw in the Accord since this design introduced (1998-2002) which is it's huge rear blind-spot on both sides. Talked with other owners and all agree. Just be a little extra careful when getting over and you'll get used to it.
Pros: Performance & handaling
Cons: No in dash cd
Advice: Buy,BUY,buy,BUYMy last car was a Z28 6 speed & I was concerned about the loss of performance going from 280 HP to 230 HP automatic. Little did I know. 'This car blows you away' It not only out accelerates the Z but the handling is like night & day. I would recommend this car to anyone i bought the car loaded, sports package, weather package, nav system ecc & its worth every $. As for the A4,3-series, & Mercedes, you have no choice - EAT MY DUST!!!
Pros: Side compartments
Cons: No running boards.
Advice: Drive it, you will love it, then buy it.Drives very solid. More like a Tahoe than a Silverado. Enough power to get you where you need to go, and extremly comfortable.
Pros: Smooth operating convertible top - it's a Lexus.
Cons: My wife doesn't let me drive it often enough.
Advice: Go for it - you'll never regret it.Outstanding vehicle. We have owned M- B, Audi, other Lexus and other quality cars; this one clearly is the best.
Pros: sound system
Cons: hard seats
Advice: Buy a seat cushion and GO!I have been 2,000 miles & so far so good. The ride is smooth. The car corners and stops very well. The 4 cylinder has plenty of pick up for me. MPG so far is 27-30 mpg highway and city. The fit & finish are perfect outside and inside. No blemishes of any type. The only complaints I have are what I feel are design flaws. 1)It is very hard to get into the back seat. Once you get in there is lots of room but getting there is a real pain. How about a 2 inch longer door? 2)The trunk is hard to access b/c the threshold is so high. 3) Seats are hard. Tiring on the buttocks after a long day. This model has been out for 4 years. You would think these would have been corrected. Overall I feel great about this car. My 4th Honda.All have been great cars, wonderful resale value.
Pros: Look and driving comfort
Cons: noise level, might be a bit better
Advice: drive one yourself, and the difference is obviousExcellent ride and comfort. Drove several of the most popular and this was the most comfortable by far. Love the appearance.
Pros: the standard equipment and the 10 year 100
Cons: storage under cargo mat is to small
Advice: Go test drive this suv. be sure to look at crash test ratingvery comfortable ride good sounding sterio the GLS has a v-6 as standard equipment with power to pass at highway speeds it has good leg room for rear passengers the controls for accesories is easy to reach
