    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

    2002 Acura MDX - Base

    Pros: The design is awesome, best looking SUV anywhere.

    Cons: Outrageous price for dealer installed accessories.

    Advice: If you can get it at MSRP, consider yourself a winner.

    The MDX is a dream to drive. Acceleration is smooth and quick, the engine is extremely quiet, and it stops really well considering it weighs 4500 pounds. Quite a bit of lean when taking a curve over speed limit, but recovers nicely. My wife did not want to drive my traded-in GMC Sonoma, but she loves to drive the MDX. This car beats the competition hands down, no comparison!

    2002 Acura MDX - Base

    Pros: Car's performance and handling

    Cons: Design of the car from the front

    Advice: We can highly recommend this car but don't buy over MRSP.

    We owned a Jeep Grand Cherokee Ltd but had nothing but trouble with it. We spend huge amounts of money for very costly repairs (air conditioning, transmission, etc) and wanted finally a very dependable and reliable SUV. Initially the good reviews brought us to the Acura dealer to test drive a MDX. We were extremely impressed by the cars performance and feel as well as the quality. We ordered the car and got it delivered within 2 weeks as another customer changed his mind and switched to another color. We paid MRSP but nothing more. We own the car now over six months and are still very impressed and happy! We have only been at the dealer for an oil change! We can really highly recommend this car!
