    2002 Nissan Frontier - SC-V6 (A4) 4x2 Standard Bed Crew Cab

    Pros: Look of truck

    Cons: Tires

    Advice: The gas milage sucks.

    Have 2001 SC crew cab, driven 17,000 miles thus far. Rides great, have been gawked at by at least 50 people. Gas milage is poor, I avg 16mpg, and I drive like a Floridian. Don't like the fit of the front fender flairs. There is little gap that lets pebbles get behind the flair and get stuck. Dealer agreed the fit was bad, and replaced them with new ones. They are better, but still not a good design. Tires are apt to hydroplane due to tread design and size.

    2002 Nissan Sentra - GXE (M5)

    Pros: Accelleration and Gas Milage

    Cons: nothing

    Advice: My sales person was excellent but watchout for con artists...BE PREPARED!

    I am have been a loyal Nissan consumer for almost a decade. My first car was a '86 200sx. My parents bought it for my my 16th b-day. At 156,000+ miles, it is a workhorse. I just bought a '02 Sentra GXE two weeks ago. I am very pleased. For an entry level car it has out performs most of the cars in its class. I would advise anyone who is just starting out like me to strongly consider the Sentra.

    2002 Nissan Maxima - GXE (A4)

    Pros: overall performance

    Cons: the passenger seat lacks full adjustment

    Advice: Drive it to see if it feels good

    This car handles very well at all speeds. The steering is tight and you feel in control at all times. I have a problem with the passenger seat comfort. The next vehicle I buy will have six way control for the passenger seat. I'm a big man and the seat was made for small people. The acceleration is great although from a start up position it leaves me disappointed. Once you are rolling the acceleration is fantastic. The mileage is good and the braking is excellent. My wife drives the vehicle in the city and feels very comfortable with the handling.

    2002 Nissan Altima - 2.5 SL (M5)

    Pros: Appearance/Ergonomics

    Cons: Nothing

    Advice: Negotiate vigorously when considering options/features!

    The 2002 Nissan Altima took my breath away! I tested the 2.5SL model and was amazed that a 4-cylinder could drive so powerfully. The acceleration is fantastic but be careful, it can really get away from you. This year's model is completely redesigned and is more attractive than its higher-priced big brother, the Maxima. The interior cabin is spacious and gorgeous, with soft comfortable leather. Large trunk, fold-down back seats. The new design is as stylish as some of the higher-end foreign cars such as the Audi A4 or VW Passat. I'm impressed to say the least.

    2002 Nissan Altima - 3.5 SE (M5)

    Pros: Leg room both in front and in back

    Cons: Absolutely nothing!

    Advice: If you want a 5 speed

    Drive this car and love this car! Don't let the salesperson pitch you on the 4 cylinder. Get the 6 cylinder with the 240 hp. It's definitely worth it! I had a 97 Jetta prior and loved that car. I was considering getting a 2002 Jetta but they just don't have the horsepower. You want speed? Get the 3.5 SE!

    2002 Nissan Maxima - SE (M6)

    Pros: Hold on cause when you give it the gas she's gone!

    Cons: The trunck and gas door release are in a funky spot.

    Advice: Set a price in your head and don't back down they really want to sell these cars so make them do it!

    This baby handles like its on rails.I was concerned at first of the price vs. performance issue,but after driving this mean machine i knew i had to widdle the dealer down.There was no way i was leaving the lot without one.There is a little road noise but what do you expect when your sitting 3in. off the ground.This will be our family car till it falls apart and my little race car when the wifes not looking.

    2002 Nissan Altima - 2.5 S (M5)

    Pros: STYLING & COMFORT.

    Cons: LIMITED WARRANTY RATHER THAN BUMPER-TO-BUMPER

    Advice: COMPARE AND THEN TEST DRIVE THE VEHICLE.

    I WENT IN THE DEALERSHIP TO LOOK AT A NEW MAXIMA AND I ENDED UP TAKING A TEST DRIVE IN THE NEW ALTIMA WITH THE 2.5L ENGINE AND I COULD NOT HAVE BEEN MORE PLEASED. INITIALLY, I THOUGHT I WANTED THE 3.5L (6-CYL) BUT I WAS SO IMPRESSED WITH THE GET UP AND GO ON THE 2.5L WITH AN AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION THAT I PURCHASED THE MODEL WITH THE 2.5L ENGINE AND I HAVE NOT REGRETTED MY DECISION SO FAR...
