    2002 Acura MDX - Base

    Pros: The navigation and auto-four wheel drive system.

    Cons: no side protection for door dings.

    Advice: Go buy one now!

    It performs and handles like a sport sedan. Very potent engine. Great cornering ability too, even without any electronic-compensating device for that. The engineer who designed the vehicle had mentioned that he actually did not design it to have one- to save on vehicle cost(compared to the other vehicles in its class) and for it to be more reliable - the less electronics, the less it will have any problems. Instead, he widened the length between the rear wheels than the one in front to make it stable when cornering.

    2002 Land Rover Freelander - SE

    Pros: automatic/ sport transmission

    Cons: Typical Land Rover box appearance

    Advice: Be aware Land Rover Corp. still have certain bugs to work out with this vehicle and they are not great at sharing info with their retailers.

    The Freelander, is very stable on snow covered, or icy roads. Auto shift, gives you the option to shift for yourself in tricky winter conditions. Another nice winter feature is the heated windshield eliminating the need to scrape ice. As for summer features, Freelander can climb mountain passes with ease and can travel through city traffic like a native. Very easy to manuever in most conditions. Some creature comforts could be better such as the output of the air conditioner and armrests would be nice, let's re-think the window controls. Still, all said and done, great car for the price.

    2002 Land Rover Discovery - SE

    Pros: So far, I love the handling, the twin sunroofs, & the 6-disc CD changer. I'm sure I'm gonna love the off-road handling!

    Cons: Limited entry-way to back seat.

    Advice: It's gonna cost you, but you will NOT be disappointed! By adding in all the options you want at purchase, they can be covered by the factory warranty.

    Smooth & quiet! That was my first impression when I drove this vehicle. I was looking for a vehicle with 3rd row seats that did not look like a minivan. I needed something that could safely carry my family but that was rugged enough to carry my kayak & bikes. I bought a Silver Discovery SE7 with the Lightstone leather. I had to have the stainless steel running boards & SS A-frame with IFP's. I've had a lot of compliments in the past week of ownership. I feel safe when I drive it. My 1-year old loves looking out the large windows. The standard features list is excellent. As nice as it looks I still plan to take it off-roading... after all isn't that what owning a Landrover is really all about!

    2002 Acura MDX - Base

    Pros: many favorite features, ie; driving visibility, radio, sunroof, etc

    Cons: front cup holders location

    Advice: get in, buckle up, enjoy

    Did not test drive. Dealer had no cars available to try. This is my 3rd Acura so I pretty much knew what to expect.

    2002 Land Rover Discovery - SE

    Pros: Styling, interior room, off road king, big pimpn' ride.

    Cons: Nervous about reliability

    Advice: Get your check book

    I have only owned this vehicle for 3 days, and 110 miles. I love it. I have heard horror stories about car problems, but I forged ahead anyway. I used to own a VW Jetta (which had more problems than I care to count). Then stepped up to the Audi TT, and even it still had a few problems along the way. Got the Rover, love it, and hope it is a trouble free car.

    Advice: go for it.

    It handles as good as you can get at this height and weight! it is a suv but more on the sport side then the off road.

    2002 Acura MDX - Base

    Pros: 6 cylinders. third row seats

    Cons: no windows to open in the third row seating area

    Advice: consider if your going to drive it everyday to commute

    It was very easy to drive and handle very smooth.It was pretty quiet I wish the third row seating area that they made it so you could open the windows in the back.It was very comfortable in front seats
