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: 6-Speed tran is smooth and silky.
Cons: Top when down exposes side rail of top-looks as if something is missing
Advice: Have one built! 'Packages' costing a thousand dollars or more may not be worth the extra price.Get what YOU want !I test drove a 2003 M3 first. Fast but boring look inside and out. Drove 2003 Z4 next. Was`nt sure about the styling(inside or out)but after a short drive-I was hooked!! Had a 2002 M - fast but not user friendly. Buy this car -NOW!!!
Pros: Fun to Drive
Cons: no CD player in dash
Advice: Buy it! The warranty is good, and you can't find a better car for this price!I drove many 4 cylinder new cars, and the New Beetle was by far the most comfortable, best handling of them all. The safety features are great (steel is GOOD!) and there is lots more room than i expected. I bought one, and love it so far! It has turned out to be the best value for its price range.The only thing that is slightly negative is that there is no option for an in-dash Cd player, and for VW to put in a changer is REALLY expensive.
Pros: Body Shape
Advice: If you see any Z3 coupe...don't think about it, just grab it. 2002 models are the last one. In my opinion, it will be a collector's item.From a woman's point of view...This luxury sports coupe is powerful, smooth and sexy. Although my husband and I didn't buy the Z3 for the 225-horsepower, six cylinder, 3.0 liter engine, and all of many additional surprising features...we bought this car because of the way it looks. It has it's own character...It's odd, but beautiful. 2002 Z3 3.0i sports coupe will get to know it's master's way of driving and will eventually become insync. This sports coupe hugs the road...and obeys command. It needs to be free, to let it's power loose and roar.
Pros: Adjustments for driver position, seat heaters
Cons: Extra force required to drive the car.
Advice: You probably won't get much of a price break.Very nice car, handles extremely well. Road noise is just about non-existent inside. I felt the controls were a bit stiff, steering, brakes, gas, all took more effort than the car I ended up with. Seats were stiff, and felt a little short under the thighs, although the many adjustments (seat and steering) allowed for a good driving position. The design that goes into these cars is incredible! One turn off I had in this car was the heating system and CD player did not work. Brand new car on the lot, not a good sign.
Pros: Acceleration, quattro sys, interior and looks
Cons: engine heating and exterior noise
Advice: Take a test drive and you must use it only as a weekend car, its too sensitive.It was tough deciding what vehicle to purchase at first but at the end i went for the TT. The interior is made of really high quality stuff unlike other cars wich have those very plastiky interiors, the engine and trans are nice & smooth but shifting can be tricky. problem I have faced were that the engine's heat can increase when idle I talked to the agent and he said that this is normal because of the turbo, the other problem was that when I went to the autowash some water was leaking inside! this should not have happened, the head lights had some vapor inside some of the time. Driving is really solid, steering response is the best Ive tried and the clutch is soft making it perfect for shifting. but the TT is a bit noisy on the road something that is not expected from AUDI. Overal it is a great car but I just wish that those problems did not occur.
Pros: heated seats
Cons: too many rattles which is why I rated quality as lower/hard to reach seat belts
Advice: BUY THIS CAR NOW-HAVE FUN!!!Love it!!! 0-60 in no time flat! Seen reviews that say back seat is a joke. These people must not have gotten in the back seat. My two boys are 6' tall. They say they have plenty of leg room and head room and are comfortable. My daughter is 7 and tall for her age. She can almost stand up in the back seating area and is very happy with all the room back there. I am a very large woman and have more room than I have ever had in the drivers seat. The seat belt is even comfortable. The interior is laid out very nice and is roomy. I LOVE THIS CAR!!!
Pros: ease of the top
Advice: funfun makes you think your running with the big boys handles great it a blast
