Pros: The reinforced steel cage.
Cons: The door opening width.
Advice: Its a great nimble 'small' suv with lots of interior room.The Jeep Liberty accelerates quickly and manuveurs like a sports car. I am getting close to 20 mpg on the 3.7l v-6 engine. It has more leg and head room than the Grand Cherokee, which is a plus since I am 6'3'.
Pros: Leather Seat Heaters
Cons: No on board trip computer.
Advice: Get one!!!!I just bot the 3/4 Ton with the 8100 motor. Much moore power to pull my 9800 lb trailer, than in my two previous 3/4 454's. I bot all options but the sun roof. The best of my 3 subs.
Pros: The comfortable heated leather seats.
Cons: Can't think of anything!
Advice: Get one!Didn't even realize I was driving a SUV!
Pros: style, capabilities, handling
Cons: small rear seat and side view mirrors
Advice: This is a great, versatile vehicle for a fair priceThe Land Rover Discovery II is a great vehicle. The price is relatively good for what this vehicle has to offer. With the Discovery's impeccable reputation for off road capability, the vehicle has a surprisingly smooth and luxurious ride. The controls are located in different places compared to most vehicles, but take little time to become accustomed to. The vehicles corners better than most others of the same size. Acceleration is impressive from a rather docile 4.0L engine with a mere 188 bhp. The CD changer is a little akward to access, especially from the driver seat. The side view mirrors are rather small and the vehicle lacks automatic lights. The rear seats are difficult to access, especially for tall individuals. Other than that, the vehicle is well equipped and comfortable. I just purchased my 2002 Blenheim Silver Disco II SE. I opted for the lightstone leather, finding it easier on the eyes. Included at cost were additional wood trim, wheel locks, running boards and front and rear brush guards. The selection is limited, since LR only produces around 70k Discos per year. And with the introduction of the Freelander most Discos were shipped early this year. As far as service, there is a no haggle policy involved, which simply means customers will not spend the entire day at LR debating price. The service department is very helpful and friendly. My experiences at LR have been very pleasant and a big change from the service I was accustomed to at Ford. The warranty is 4 yr/50k miles. Oil changes are free for the life of the vehicle in addition to a free loaner for customers 21+ yrs of age. LR also tries to wash and vacuum your vehicle per service. So far, I am very satisfied with my owner experience.
Pros: The in-line 6 is awesome
Cons: poor quality
Advice: I echo the person that said wait a year (MT truck of the year or not)Purchased my Envoy in June and LOVE everything about it when it works properly. I have already visited the Dealer several times to repair a fluid leak (resulting from an improperly installed drive shaft), an inability to shift out of park, r. window wash that didn't work, console with a major squeak, and now my heat does not seem to work properly. This could be a phenominal vehicle - could you get the quality up PLEASE?
Cons: Some corners cut on interior, finish, etc.
Advice: Test drive it-You'll know right away if this car is your cup of tea!The WRX Sport wagon is in my opinion one of the best values on the maket. All-wheel drive combined with a turbocharged boxer engine produces some serious fun. The car accelerates with great speed, especially upwards of 3000 rpm, and corners with total precision. The car reacts beautifully to the driver-as an added plus, the wagon offers a fair amount of cargo space, and all models have full power and a decent sound system. I actually look forward to driving, even in traffic!
Pros: Easy to read control panel/remote control for the back window
Cons: Reaching over the tire to get into the back.
Advice: Drive one, it's worth it.My husband and I wanted a new vehicle. What we wanted was a 4x4, with towing ability and a comfortable ride. That was a challenge. My husband and I searched out everything from A to Z, test drove them as well. somethings were too mushy, others were too truck like. While on our search and distroy mission my husband looked at a Liberty, then he asked if I liked the way it looked. I was taken by the look. We went on a test drive and we were sold. It has a smooth ride, not too mushy and not too truck like. It responds well to stepping on it in traffic conditions. We towed a trailer with it and it was just great, the ride didn't change at all, still smooth. Can't wait for a good snow, then we can play with the 4 wheel drive!
