2002 Toyota Camry - LE (M5)
Cons: What's not to like?
Advice: Drive others first; then you will love this even moreQuiet (not only is the engine quiet but there is a lack of wind or road noise), very comfortable driver seat, roomy interior and trunk , excellent ride, excellent sound system, great ergonomics, great gas mileage. I am talking about the 4 cylinder LE model which I bought. 157 horsepower gives adequate acceleration unless you are the race driver type. They also offer a 6 cylinder if you are so inclined.
2002 Audi A4 - 3.0 (CVT) FWD Front Trak Sedan
Cons: rear leg room
Advice: 3.0 engine needed to bring out performancelike a moving snow drift traction unbelievable live in buffalo n.y. area when on dry pavement handling feels like nascar auto.
2002 Mitsubishi Diamante - LS (A4)
Pros: Powerful engine, overall quality.
Cons: This car needs to be promoted more in TV ads.
Advice: Go get it, you won't be sorry. Guaranteed.I went in to the Mitsubishi dealer in order to get the Galant, but once I saw this Black Diamanate with Tan Leather I got pretty much hooked up right there... This car is the best value you can get for your money, it has all the 'extra' features of other makes as 'standard'. I used the 0-0-0 promotion of Mitsubishi and I just got the car with no money down, no interest, no payments till Feb. 2003 ! Wow.
2002 Volkswagen New Beetle - GLX (M5)
Cons: Cup holders could be better situated. This is only thing about the car I don't like.
Advice: Buy the turbo!This is a great little car. Power, comfort, road handling, great features. German engineering. This car is a blast to drive!!!!
2002 Volkswagen Jetta - GLS (M5) Sedan
Pros: One touch power window
Cons: No leg room behind.
Advice: Go for Passat if you have to buy VW.Very nice and comfortable. Uses less gas than specified.Power window fell three times into the door.
2002 Hyundai Sonata - GLS (M5)
Pros: the ability to swith between automatic and manual
Cons: the bucket seats are somewhat uncomfortable
Advice: test drive and compare the prices. YOU'LL BE SOLD!this car really took my breath away when i first seen it. i never would have imagined myself ever buying a hyundai. But all of that changed when i test drove it. it had the ability to pick up speed and keep up. the interior is very roomy and the exterior is very classy like the jag. and the price....is well within anyone's budget. only problem is the bucket seats are not that comfortable.
2002 Mazda Millenia - PS
Pros: luxury items, price
Advice: Get one while the deals or hot!The base engine is a little light - but that is the only issue - which I knew when I bought the car. However, what a deal for this car - all the features for a very low price (under 23k). This is a near luxury car at econo box price! What more needs to be said!
