    2003 Ford Escape - XLT Premium (320B) FWD

    Pros: V-6

    Cons: Interrior configuration of headrest on back seat.

    Advice: Test drive them all in this class before settling for a ho-hum Japanese entry.

    Of the vehicles in this class, I found the drive in the escape to be fun. The rest with four cylinder engines lacke any sort of excitement. The cars in this class are so close and competitve Ford balanced gas milage with fun!

    2002 Jeep Liberty - Sport 4x2

    Pros: Handling. Very responsive.

    Cons: Drumming sound when windows are down.

    Advice: Test drive with the windows down.

    Power window switches are in an awkward location. You can't drive with the windows down because of the terrible drumming from the wind circulation. I bought the car in January and I never thought to put the windows down when I was test driving it. It would be nice if the back seats were able to fold flat. The steering is very quick. I like the headroom. I'm 6'1' and I have plenty. High seating position allows great view of the front corners. Nice fat steering wheel;it allows for a good grip. The seat bottom seams to be a little short for me. It feels like half of my thighs are unsupported.

    2002 Land Rover Freelander - SE

    Pros: 4AWD

    Cons: Lack of pickup

    Advice: ask about the cash purchase discount

    Best vehicle for Michigan snow - better than other 4wd cars. Stability control makes for an effortless drive out of early morning snow covered roads. My favorite car ever - looks good, drives good, good handler. The only negative is the initial head bumping upon entry, but you learn to put your head in first, the rest of the experience is tops.

    2002 Land Rover Freelander - S

    Pros: Apperance and its a REAL offroading vehicle

    Cons: Hard shifting when acclerating

    Advice: If you want a fast sports car drive, pick a different car

    This is my first car of my own and it is a truley fantastic car. The styling is beautiful but the interior on the base Freelander is too standard for a luxury SUV. But these cars can handle everyday driving but they really love off-roading. This SUV can handle all the bumps and twists in the road except it takes a while to get up to higher speeds.

    2002 Jeep Liberty - Sport 4x2

    Pros: I love the headroom.

    Cons: I hate where the power window buttons are located!

    Advice: Bring a friend to test drive while you ride in the back seat.

    The Liberty glides along on the road. However, the rear passengers nearly bounce through the roof whenever the car goes over a speed bump or pothole. Very bouncy!
