Getting firsthand information from an actual car owner is one sure way to get an idea of car performance once it leaves the lot. Autobytel features real consumer reviews that give the unbiased experience of a car.
Pros: Turbo and Monsoon sound system
Cons: Cup Holders, seat reclining crank wheel, and lack of rear seat space. also Velour seats gather a LOT of lint. Lint Magnets!!
Advice: Pay no more than $300 over invoice. Start bidding wars by contacting different dealerships online. Definitely get your quotes from online car buying services.I had no idea the power behind these little guys. When I first took the test drive and the salesman told me to accelrate fast, I had NO idea it was going to take off that fast. I've never driven a Honda or Toyota that felt like this.
Pros: Manu-Matic Transmission
Cons: The Type S only comes in Manual, so for all of us that want to drive fast but dont like stick....
Advice: Great purchase, but dont expect alot of trunk room if you don't put the backseats downBeing a 17 year old teenager, of course the first thing I look for in a car is speed. I mean thats what we all want right? Well lucky for me my mother owns an Acura 2.5TL and needed service. The car that they lend you during service is the 2002 Acura RSX that I had been researching for weeks. Well after my dad brought me home from an away basketball game, and I saw it sitting in the garage, I almost flipped a sh!t. I always wanted to drive one of these!! So after I wolfed down my dinner I plotted to take it. Plan sucessful. Upon backing out of the driveway I noticed the stick could be moved over to the 'M' position. Ah Ha! The infamous manu-matic. All in all the car ride was amazing. The Manu-Matic transmission did not produce one problem. The stereo system was on point. The car control was very nice, as well as braking distance and acceleration time. Trunk space was adequate for a teenager like myself, and if more room is needed the backseats fold down. Upon return, I was trying to be sneaky. It's kinda hard to be sneaky if the music is blasting and the brights are on. Oh well....
Pros: The 5.7 liter 350 horse power V8
Cons: The long heavy doors
Advice: Get the 6 speed manual transmission.The 2002 Corvette coupe is the absolute best bang for your buck in the premium sports car class. It combines throw-you-back-in-your-seat acceleration with tight handling and enough leg and head room for my 6+ foot frame. I actually enjoy driving to work every day!
Cons: the seats in the back
Advice: buy this car because it will be the best thing that happens to you.I bought the new Sc430 and I must say it takes the cake. The steering is just wonderful and I love the hard top convertible. The seats are very comfortable and everyone just stares in awwww. I highly recommend this car for everyone.
