    2002 Honda CR-V - EX (M5) 4x4

    Pros: HP and torque are improved greatly over the previous models. 6 in dash CD. sunroof. interior space. rear seat adjustments. great gas milage

    Cons: clicking noise comes from the shifter in Auto models when comming to a complete stop. rear middle headreast is in way of view. tires somewhat small for vehicle size. auto shifter takes a while to get used to.

    Advice: test drive and listen for the reverse lockout solenoid that clicks when you come to a stop. it can drive you crazy if little noises bother you.

    superb improvement on the pick-up from the 98 model which I traded in. this is an overall great car for the price. there are a few quirks but they hardly compare to the multitude of great features. Note. This car ships with two different tires, the BF goodrich Touring which are very quiet and superior to the Duelers, which are very noisy.

    2002 Honda Accord - 2.3 EX (M5) Coupe

    Pros: Visibility from the front seat

    Cons: Very hard seats

    Advice: For short jaunts it's ideal but not for trips.

    The 4 cyl, 150 HP engine is very responsive. Car is ideal in every way. Please read Mark from Texas' review. I agree with him 100% This car is a fantastic value for the price but the seats are terribly hard. The Honda folks should be ashamed but then maybe Japanese behinds are different than ours

    2002 Honda S2000 - Base

    Pros: tight, well-controlled handling

    Cons: poor factory radio

    Advice: drive one before you buy, the steering wheel isn't adjustable

    This is an elemental roadster in its most pure sense. If you're looking for cushy accommodations and creature comforts, look elsewhere; Honda makes no apologies in its nearly perfect iteration of the classic sports car. While some may fault the S2000's lack of low-RPM torque, in actual driving it is perfectly balanced with more than enough off-the-line oomph to get you going. When the tach goes above 6000 RPM however, hang on to your hat. At this point, the VTEC kicks in and you feel a surge not unlike a turbo-charger, but this car is normally aspirated and will suffer none of the long-term reliability issues associated with a boosted engine. The engine will keep providing power until 9000 RPM, a stratospherically high piston speed that no other production car can match. With the top down and the engine screaming at Formula-One car speeds, this car provides a visceral experience that can't be found with any other car in this price range. With six forward gears to choose from, this car will appeal to those who like to shift; if you're not manual-transmission inclined, again this car isn't for you, it's not available with an automatic transmission; this would be an insult to the design intent of the car.

    2002 Honda Civic - LX (M5) Sedan

    Pros: The ride - choppy, but responsive. You can't feel the gears shift in automatic.

    Cons: The seats are uncomfortable, rear of car is ugly.

    Advice: The best in its class - best resale too.

    Test drove the Nissan Sentra and Toyota Echo too. The Echo felt really cheap, and the Sentra, even with 10 more horsepower, performed poorly. Mazda's commercials kept me from even test driving the protege. The better-looking Sentra was cheaper with the same features and good reliability, but so-so resale and sluggish performance. The echo was too expensive and came with NO features. The civic was the best hands-down, but if Nissan can sell the same car with the same features for less, so should Honda. Why Honda discontinued the hatchback, I have no idea - it was their best-selling, best looking model. Everything is top quality the car is roomier than its competition.
