    2002 Ford Focus - (100A) 2dr Hatchback

    Pros: The suspension and chasis.

    Cons: Recalls

    Advice: www.focaljet.com is a great online community to research this car.

    First Off the ZX3 is a different model than the LX Ashanti. ;) I have had my ZX3 since January of 2000. This car is just straight up fun to drive! In my opinion the Focus models are great values and offer an individual who enjoys driving a package which is hard to beat.

    2002 Ford Focus - (100A) 2dr Hatchback

    Pros: Head and hip room and fun to drive

    Cons: Front seats don't flip forward on a spring for rear seat access

    Advice: Make shure that you get the Zetec engine

    Bought this car in Aug. 2000 and haven't had any complaints.Lots of head and cargo room.The car handles great but the tires that come stock are terrible in rain and snow.My Gas mileage is 27.5 MPG on average but can drop dramatically with hard driving.This car is a joy to drive.You can toss it around in traffic and it doesn't float around like most domestic cars.Car has had several recalls,but most were minor and all were fixed without any pain.

    2002 Volkswagen Jetta - GL TDI (M5) Sedan

    Pros: Warranty and winter package

    Cons: Rattles

    Advice: Upgrade to the winter package

    Test drove the 2001 TDI in Germany and found it had plenty of power to survive and even enjoy the Autobahns. Purchased same featured car in the USA and have no regrets. It isn't about how fast but how far you can go. 1st tank produced 49+mpg with the air conditioner on. Quite, torque, it just isn't a pocket rocket.

    2002 Ford Mustang - Standard (100A) Coupe

    Pros: V-6

    Cons: Interior Room

    Advice: Test Drive it.

    Just bought a 2002 Mustang Coupe. I love the car. It has great finish, plenty of power and torque - even with the V-6, and a great price for what you get.

    2002 Volkswagen Jetta - GLS L (M5) Sedan

    Pros: Egronomic controls

    Cons: Monsoon radio and speakers cannot be simply updated or changed w/o modifications.

    Advice: Listen for rattling noises in the doors (both driver and passenger side).

    Be sure and test drive all models. That way you can determine gas mileage versus pickup. My recommendation is to buy the 1.8 T since it is the best of both. You get pickup when needed as well as very good gas mileage (24 mpg city/30 mpg highway). I would also recommend if you get the 1.8 T get the sport handling package and the 17' wheels.

    2002 Volkswagen Jetta - GLS L (M5) Sedan

    Pros: 1.8 T engine

    Cons: rattles

    Advice: Test drive first.

    I have had my 2002 1.8T manual for 4 months. So far there has been no problem except some rattles on bumpy road at the drive's and passenge's doors. It's fun to drive, very comfortable, and safe. With the peppy 1.8T engine it accelerates fast. The fuel economy is quite good - so far it averaged 28-30 MPG with mix driving (10% city and 90% highway). I love the car!
