    Pros: The quite ride.

    Cons: The problems that have occurred with the computer.

    BIG POWERFULL AND GENERALLY SPACIOUS ALTHOUGH CENTER CONSOLE TAKES UP A LOT OF HIP ROOM. DETAIL ITEMS; DOOR FIT,PAINT ETC DOESN'T MATCH UP TO HIGH STANDARD IMPORTS

    2002 Subaru Impreza - WRX (M5) Sedan

    Pros: AWD with tons of torque

    Cons: Vehicle seems less stable @ +110mph due - could be solved w/suspension upgrade

    Advice: Skip carbon fiber trim and get the suspension upgrade + performance muffler

    I replaced my 1998 Honda Prelude Type SH with this vehicle and never looked back. The straight line acceleration is incredible with minimal engine noise (unlike the Prelude VTEC)...and the AWD allows me an additional 10-20 mph cornering speed on my favorite roads. It is also a very friendly day-to-day driver...easy to get in and out of, 4 doors, large trunk, etc. Acquire one if you have the means. I cannot wait to drive it everyday!!

    2002 Chrysler PT Cruiser - Base

    Pros: outward appearance

    Cons: interior arrangement is tight

    Advice: be small people and have a sense of humor about being passed on hills

    Desperately needs more power and a two door model why the stodgy 15hp when it would be so easy to add the 25 horses needed to keep up with the appearance of a flashy new car? The option to have a two door is a big one for me to few single people cars on the market today this is a stylish car but as a slow starting four door it is strictly for the family and elderly set too bad it really is a head turner

    2002 Ford Expedition - XLT 4x4

    Pros: Powertrain

    Cons: Ergonomics

    Advice: consider a Durango

    Got this as a company car about six months ago. So far it has been in the shop once, for a failed sunroof mechanism that is still not right. Overall, I have to say that the ergonomics as well as the fit and finish of the interior is of lesser quality than my old 1998 model. The interior, in general, feels like it went through a downgrade. Get in an Explorer, then get in an Escape. All the same switches and controls. Seats are less comfortable too. That being said, the Explorer is still a great warrior for the urban jungle. Great visibility, good turning radius, and tons of space. I love the new suspension, the engine and tranny (although the shift points take some time to get used to), and the new bodywork.

    2002 Jeep Liberty - Limited Edition 4x4

    Pros: remote opening rear door.

    Cons: That the head lights do not have day light running lights and you have to remember to turn them off when you park.

    Advice: Get the V-6 engine.

    I have driven this vehicle in all kinds of freeway and city driving and it has been wonderful. It has plenty of power for merging onto freeways. I have towed a small trailer and the tow package worked great. The fit and finish of the vehicle is excellent. I have truly enjoyed the Liberty and am looking forward to the first snow, so I can try out the four wheel drive.
