    2002 Ford Mustang - GT Deluxe (130A) Coupe

    Pros: All out Performance & Handling

    Cons: The Sluggish Stick Shifter

    Advice: JUST DO IT!!! You won't regret it!

    I've been a Crysler,Dodge & Plymouth fan most of my life, I've always liked the looks of the Mustang but that was as far as it went till my ex-wife purchased a 1996 model and let me drive it. I then rented a 2001 6cyl convertable to drive to a Family Reunion and I was sold, a few weeks later I purchased my 2002 Ford Mustang GT Premuim Edition and you don't allow enough room here to tell you how much I 'LOVE' this car. Looks,Comfort,Handling,Performance are unequaled in any previsely owned vehical. And to think I almost purchased a PT Crusier,and if it wasn't for the sneaky underhanded behind the back tactics of Sarasota Chrysler I would have made a 'BIG' mistake, for that I thank them. And to Autoway Ford,Bradenton Fl. I Thank You,for a truly pleasant experience and the 'BEST CAR I'VE EVER OWED!' pmm

    2002 Ford Explorer - XLT 4x2

    Pros: The 3rd row seating

    Cons: Not being able to see the mileage and trip mileage at the same time.

    Advice: Go with the V8 model.

    I really like to V8 model. It drives very smooth and the steering is great. This vehicles handles just like a car. Easy manuevering (sp?) into spots.

    2002 Ford Focus - ZTW (420A) Wagon

    Pros: Handling

    Cons: Could use a bit more power going up hills here in Atlanta

    Advice: Test drive in both traffic and open road conditions.

    Just took delivery and have less than 1500 miles. Atlanta traffic was killing my 99 Grand Marquis and went to a more practical car. Best move I have made. Very nimble, quick in and out of traffic. Brakes very solid.

    2002 Ford Explorer - Limited 4x4

    Pros: Performance, Features and Towing Capacity

    Cons: Sloping cargo area with third seat down

    Advice: Avoid the 3rd seat unless you need it.

    This LTD version came with all the options and is performing flawlessly since driving it out of the dealership. Great power with the V8 and rides very comfortably. Lots of human engineering went into this new design. The only drawback being the sloping cargo floor when the third seat is down. Rolling objects will fall out when the hatch is opened.

    2002 Ford F-250 - XLT 4x2 SD Crew Cab Short Box

    Pros: size of the interior and the 6 way power seats

    Cons: My truck is perfect and sound

    Advice: Go with the 4 door crew cab it's worth the small price for the extra room

    I test drove this truck up and down the highway with good take off speed for a truck of its size and weight. This truck is solid and quiet. The captain seats are must on the crew cab. They are firm but comfortable. There is alot of storage space inside the cab with a good size space behind the rear seat. Ford did a great job combining the look and feel of a big truck while still making it a comfortable ride on long trips.

    2002 Ford Focus - SE (400A) Wagon

    Pros: safety record

    Cons: size of the rear seat

    Advice: It claims to get 32 freeway miles per gallon. It's realy about 25.

    The focus wagon handles well however it is very light and has trouble in the wind. Also it only seats five if the ones in the back seat are very, very, small.

    2002 Ford F-150 SuperCrew - XLT 4x4 SuperCrew Cab Styleside Styleside

    Pros: the look of the vehicle

    Cons: The seats

    Advice: get true bucket seats

    This vehicle is uncomfortable to sit in. The seats, unless they are truly bucket seats are uncomfortable.
