    2003 Ford Escape - Limited (600B) 4x4

    Pros: Compact enough to park anywhere

    Cons: Wind noise

    Advice: If you do not like large SUVs

    I got my Limited Escape (all black, including black leather seats) in December 2002 - I absolutely love it! It is powerful with V6, but it does not have the 'clumsy' feel of a Ford Explorer. I do not have a family, so it is spacious enough for all my needs - and my friends are really impressed with it - some of them have Toyotas & Hondas.

    2003 Land Rover Freelander - S 4dr

    Pros: Sportronic Shifting Mode

    Cons: Lack of Sunroof (I only have the base model, though)

    Advice: If you need to get through the urban grind Monday through Friday, yet still want to tear up the hills on the weekend...buy the Freelander.

    I am a student at UCLA, so the funds situation is usually bleak (I'm talking about Ramen noodles for dinner 4 out of 7 nights a week). So, imagine my surprise when I found that I could get a Land Rover for under 30K. The Freelander makes me feel like a high roller, without having the 401K and trust funds to back up the assumption. The sport shifting on my Freelander S is BUTTERY smooth, and a MAJOR improvement over what I was driving before...a bare bones Toyota Tacoma. The power windows and cruise control are certainly appreciated. This SUV is quick, despite weighing in at almost 2.5 tons. BUY THIS VEHICLE!!! You won't regret it.

    2003 Ford Escape - XLT Premium (420B) 4x4

    Pros: Engine pick up, sporty look

    Cons: rear head rests get in the way, front & windshield wipers are confusing

    Advice: check consumer reports! this rated fairly well.......

    I previously owned a Ford Explorer 2x2, 2 door for 9 years. That was my dream car and I would have gotten it again but I needed a 4 door this time and finances weren't enough to get an Explorer 4 door. I also thought the Explorer 4 door was a little to big for me so I went one notch down to the Escape. The size is more appropriate for me. I've had it 2 months now and it is a very fast car- I have to constantly make sure I'm not speeding.

    2003 Jeep Liberty - Limited Edition 4x4

    Pros: Chrome Accents in the Interior, Leather. When it's fully loaded it's amazing.

    Cons: I am so tall my leg sits on the handle of the door, which is uncomfortable.

    Advice: Make sure you like it, and if your going to get it, get it fully loaded. The leather and chrome make the truck!

    I did not test drive. Being 17 and stupid I went by looks alone. Didn't care how it road, but thankfully I was not let down and it rides fine.

    2003 Ford Escape - Limited (600B) 4x4

    Pros: V-6

    Cons: Transmission Lever

    Advice: Get the Limited 4x4, you will love it

    I just bought mine the end of February of 03 and I have loved it with the first test drive. I've always purchased Toyota's and still remain a loyal toyota buyer but I was impressed with this sport ute and love the V-6 Power. The wind noise could be dampened and the transmission lever moved but other than that I'm really impressed with this ford and love it.
