    2002 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 - 4x2

    Pros: The styling, the performance and just the sheer size of it.

    Cons: Slightly difficult to park and has a rear blind spot.

    Advice: If you want a hard-core rugged performance vehicle that will turn heads, this is the vehicle for you!

    I was a little unsure about the size of the vehicle having always owned small cars but within one week I was loving every over-sized minute of it!

    2002 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 - 4x4

    Pros: THE RIDE AND CONVERTABILITY

    Cons: GAS MILEAGE, BACKING

    Advice: BE PREPARED TO GET ABOUT 11 TO 12 MPG AROUND TOWN IN THE 4WD MODEL.

    THE AVALANCHE HANDLES LIKE A DREAM, MUCH BETTER THAN MY 1500 SILVERADO. ALSO HAS A PLUSH INTERIOR. CANNOT SEE VERY WELL WHEN BACKING. IT NEEDS A BACKING SENSOR TO COME STANDARD.

    2002 Dodge Ram 1500 - ST 4x2 Quad Cab Short Box

    Pros: The size first . . . . The whole package overall

    Cons: 12.5 mpg around town....but it IS a 5.9L V8 ! ! !

    Advice: Get running boards or nerf bars for the wife.....

    The new Mayor of Truckville is here ! ! ! I'm totally satisfied with mine, which I bought 3 weeks ago - 2002 1500 Quad Cab 1500 SLT, 2 Wheel drive with the 4 speed automatic, cloth seats, and the preferred package 26G, trailer tow group, 17' Chrome clad wheels. Now I need to find a camper. The ride is firm but comfortable, handling is predictable with just a bit of side hop over washboard surfaces with no load, wind noise with the windows closed is negligable, the climate control works well, unlike that in the Durango, there's plenty of visibility all around, and the trailer-tow mirrors have integral blind-spot mirrors as well.

    2002 Chevrolet S-10 - LS 4x2 Extended Cab

    Pros: Drivetrain

    Cons: Small back seat

    Advice: Buy the extend cab with the 4.3 liter engine

    This is my 2nd S-10 4X4. I've owned a Ranger, B-4000, and a Tacoma. This is by far a better truck than any other I've owned. The powertrain of a 4.3, mated with either transmission has much more low-end torque than the others; I highly recommend the 3.73 rear differential. Going over the mountain passes in Colorado is a breeze with the S-10. Off-road, it has performed without a flaw. In my opinion, this is the best compact pickup made.

    2002 Ford Ranger - XLT 2.3L Standard (380A) 4x2 2dr Super Cab Stylesi

    Pros: Rear wheel drive

    Cons: lack of power and uncomfortable seats

    Advice: look elsewhere. If you must, definitely buy the largest (4.0L) engine!!!

    This Ranger is an extended cab with the 3.0L V6. The seats are among the most uncomfortable I have ever used. Fuel economy is dismal at 14 in the city and 16.5 on the road. The 3.0L engine is very sluggish. 0-60 is around 13 seconds. A 1998 Windstar with the 3.0L V6 can easily best this by 2.5 seconds while getting 4 - 6 mpg better fuel economy. Unless you feel compelled to drive a small sluggish uncomfortable pickup, your money would be better spent elsewhere. Passing performance is a joke. This vehicle borders on dangerous with respect to pickup needed to safely merge into freeway traffic. If you look at the engine specs and weight of the vehicle on paper, it looks as if it should have more then acceptable performance, but in reality, it feels like driving a mid 80's Chrysler K car. Obviously Ford did not pay attention to owners of past versions of this vehicle. We have several in our fleet replacing Ford Windstar vans. Not one person driving this vehicle has anything good to say about it.

    2002 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 - 4x2

    Pros: Side compartments

    Cons: No running boards.

    Advice: Drive it, you will love it, then buy it.

    Drives very solid. More like a Tahoe than a Silverado. Enough power to get you where you need to go, and extremly comfortable.
