    2005 Scion xB - (M5)

    Pros: Looks and interior room

    Cons: Needs more cargo space

    Advice: get the cruise control and the arm rest

    My wife has wanted this car for the longest time. She had to have a black one. We love all the room. The performance is good, the only thing that I didn't like is traveling through the mountains. You have to drive with the overdrive off and rpms get a little high. Get the optional cruise control. I love that is backed with a name like toyota. I purchased toyota's platium extended warranty. All in all, we love the attention that we get when we are out in it. People have told me that it is the weirdest car they have ever seen. All my co-workers call it a shoebox with wheels. I plan on istalling cold air intake and a dvd system (for the kids.) Great gas mileage and will perform on the freeway.

    2005 Ford Escape - XLS 2.3L Manual (100A) FWD

    Pros: The Price

    Cons: They way it drove

    Advice: Test drive it first, then go to other dealerships and test drive their vehicles....You'll see a difference

    After a week of research on the web I decided I would test drive SUV's tonight. My first stop was the Ford Dealership that was close to my house. On paper and the reviews I decided I had to test drive the Escape...OOps big MISTAKE. The Escape was comfortable until I started driving. When I first got out of the lot I really was disappointed. It didn't get any better as I drove you because yuo could feel every bump in the road. From a performance standpoint Stay away.

    2006 Hyundai Tucson - Limited (A4) FWD

    Pros: Fold down seats and 6CD changer

    Cons: placement of the cruise control and no standard floor mats

    Advice: consider opting for the 100,000 mile bumper to bumper and road side assistance.

    Bought this car new for my wife and fell in love with it myself. It is still hard for me to believe they can load a SUV down the way they have this one for the price they want. Almost makes you feel guilty for trying to bargain with the salesman. Considered other vehicles on the market with similar features but I couldn't find one that comes close to the Tucson for the money and you can't beat the warranty. I love the way it handles. It reminds me of the Toyota Tacoma's handling but without any of the harsh ride. Feels rock solid and gets a five star safety rating. I've looked from top to bottom to try and see where they cut corners to save money and for the life of me, I haven't been able to find any. Have always been a Chevy man but if Hyundai built a pickup truck I would sure be tempted to buy one.

    2005 Ford Escape - XLS 2.3L Automatic (220A) 4x4

    Pros: the color and look

    Cons: the overall maintenience

    Advice: don't get caught up in the bells and whistles

    3 years ago I purchased this car new loving the way it looked, drove, and felt. It's served me well, but I have to say that every year I went to get it inspected it cost me over $500. The parts on this car are cheap and do not wear well. My newest mechanic said he would NEVER suggest anyone buy an Ford Escape or Focus. It has cost less to maintain my husbands 12 year old truck. I cannot wait until this lease is over and after this I will never buy american made again!!!!!!!!!!

    2005 Land Rover Freelander - 4dr

    Pros: look of the vehicle

    Cons: repairs, cost of repairs, and lost of value

    Advice: I would not buy it again

    I bought a 2002 Landrover Freelander in January 2003. The car had about 11,000 miles. I have had to constantly change the brakes and the light bulbs of the turning signals. I have recently had engine problems and after $4000 worth of work at the dealer's service center I was told the transmission needs to be replaced. I have 70,000 miles on the car and it has lost most of it's value.

    2002 Land Rover Freelander - S

    Pros: Appearance

    Cons: Cup holders on the dash are a bit out of reach and arm rests would be nice, like that in the Discovery model

    Advice: Unless you have to be the first in your vehicle, wait a year, shop around, and you'll save thousands in the long run even with a handful of miles on it.

    The appearance first caught my eye but the obstacle course had me driving to the table to sign the papers. Of course, wanting the 'ultimate deal' had me placing the salesman on hold for 48 hours to see if I could beat his best pitch. Glad I did... I found my '02 Freelander in the Spring of '03, 500 miles away for $7,000.00 less and only 8,000 miles on the odometer which included a full warranty. Last Christmas we took this vehicle up north the day after a terrible snow storm. This vehicle proved its worth as it plowed through the snow and ice, leaving most others pulled to the side and struggling to make it to the top of a hill. The only complaint I have would be the brakes/rotors I had replaced (twice) since owning. The service department made that easy to overlook with the best service experience I have seen to date. Land Rover Louisville deserves much kudo's for their entire staff.
