    2002 Oldsmobile Bravada - AWD

    Pros: Heated seatbacks separate from the seat bottom and lumbar supports.

    Cons: Standard Alloy Wheels are a little drab and chrome costs $2400. Standard Radio is worthless.

    Advice: You will love it. The Bose radio is a must, the standard radio stinks.

    Solid and competent. Engine is smooth as silk and totally responsive. Has virtually every amenity of any Mercedes or BMW I have ever owned. The interior is tastefully designed and reeks of elegance and good taste.

    2002 Jeep Liberty - Sport 4x4

    Pros: Engine

    Cons: Price

    Advice: Really compare apples with apples before you buy

    Test drove vehicle, it rides stiff and just a slight bit better than old jeep. The cargo area is small with back seats up, tire is mounted dead center on rear door which makes it difficult to place items in vehicle with flip glass up especially for someone who is not to tall. Has a good engine, very simple interior. After you add all the non standard features, the overall cost of the vehicle is over priced as compared to others. Unfortunately dealers are marking up the vehicle over the MSRP by as much as $3,000 or more, all I can say is remember the Mazda Miata when they came out and now you can't give them away. In the end I chose to purchase a Hyundai Santa Fe SUV, better bargin, warranty, features and ride.

    2002 Chevrolet TrailBlazer - LTZ 4x4

    Pros: Bose Premium Sound System

    Cons: Running Boards

    Advice: Test drive one ASAP!

    I have owned a 4Runner, Explorer, Blazer and Tahoe SUV's and the TrailBlazer is by far the best of them all! Quiet, smooth, car-like ride; 270hp that absolutely flies. This vehicle has more features/options/gadgets on it than a Cadillac or Lexus. QUALITY-You've got to test drive one for yourself!

    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.
