2002 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 - 4x2
Pros: Side compartments
Cons: No running boards.

2003 Chevrolet Tahoe - LS 4x4
Pros: New 5.3 liter V8 and drive train is excellent!
Cons: Smaller fuel tank
Advice: Compare then buy the TahoePlenty of V8 power. Very smooth and controlable. The steering provides quick response with an extremely stable feel. Suspension wise, firm and comfortable designed more for road cruising than offroad driving. I'm really impressed with the comfort and options on this vehicle. It's not just a truck anymore! If you need an offroad mud-bogger do yourself a favor and spend less on a used pickup truck!
2002 Chevrolet TrailBlazer - LS 4x2
Pros: dual zone heating/cooling controls in front seat
Cons: Not much but a coin holder would be a nice addition.
Advice: Shop around for best price and options package. These cars seem to be selling well thus discounts are not as easy to come by as on some other models.For an SUV provides a very comfortable and smooth ride. Better then the Explorer which I previously drove. Very roomy with excellent pick up and handling.
2002 Chevrolet Corvette - Convertible
Pros: Digital Controls
Cons: Horn Sound
Advice: Buy Buy BuyOn my test drive i took it to the nearby drag strip. this car can get up to the 175 +mph in about 15 seconds. my personal views on this car- Performance- Top Speed easily reached and kept Comfort- this car isnt meant for people that are over 6 ft 6 Potential Buyers- nice car but the black interior is easily dirtied. also if you attempt to customize the rims DONT it will throw off the cars settings. becuz the car has a 1 inch difference between front and rear. this care will be practically useless oncee customed rims are put on. but once the rims are put on you can get the car re set up for that size. Speed- fast accel and great top speed Closing Statements- this car is great and everything is great about it
2002 Chevrolet TrailBlazer - LTZ 4x2
Pros: OnStar and the Memory Features
Cons: Small Gas Tank
Advice: Buy this very cool SUV! You will LOVE it!!I am enjoying my TrailBlazer SO much. From the tight turing radius to the memory center to the automatic lights and windshield wipers...I could go on and on. It has great pick-up and I don't know how many people have stopped me to gawk at it. Some kids working at a fast food restaurant even gave me free food when I went through the drive through because I had such a 'cool car'! ha ha I LOVE MY TRAILBLAZER!!!
