    2002 Honda Accord - 2.3 LX (M5) Sedan

    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.

    2002 Jaguar X-Type - 2.5L (M5)

    Pros: Performance & handaling

    Cons: No in dash cd

    Advice: Buy,BUY,buy,BUY

    My 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!!!

    2002 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 - 4x2

    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.

    2002 Lexus SC 430 - Base

    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.

    2002 Honda Accord - 2.3 SE (A4) Coupe

    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.
