    2002 Ford Explorer - XLS 4x4

    Pros: handling characteristic

    Cons: grab handle on front passenger side

    Advice: I think its an excellent choice

    Acceleration from an on ramp to highway speeds somewhat sluggish with the air conditioner turned on. The back window rattles on bumpy roads. This model does not have cross bars for the roof rack. Overall, I'm pleased with appearance,roomy interior space and driveability. Extraordinarily stable in most all driving conditions...side winds, 18 wheelers passing, roundabouts, quick turns. An improved and pleasant driving experience from the older model Explorers.

    2002 Subaru Impreza - WRX (M5) Wagon

    Pros: Drive feel

    Cons: Lack of sunroof & heated seat's options. Also back seats a little hard to get into.

    Advice: Definitely worth a test drive.

    This car is wonderful. It has more overall power than most people need. While it's not superfast when you first step on the gas, it picks up steam quickly. The handling was great, good road feel. The seats hug your body and are supportive. The sound system is good, but a bit bassy for my tastes. Rear seats fold flat - a nice feature.
