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: Combination of extreme performance and luxury sedan amenities
Cons: Nothing, that I could see
Advice: If you are looking for a performance sedan, drive this one firstTo start, I must confess that I do not yet own one of these. It will take me a few months to raise the price of admission, and then I will own one. But, I certainly have test driven one. With 349 hp up high on the tach and 331 lbs/ft of torque down low, this is a performer, plus. The best and quickest way to describe it is as follows: A friend just bought a new Corvette automatic. I drove his car and was really impressed by the 'pull', but thought it not quite a true sports car by my definition. I said that I wished someone would make a car that performs like that, only in a more refined four door sedan. Well, someone has, and that car is the C32 AMG. Refinement is excellent, and makes the BMW M3 feel like driving a tractor! MB managed to put great performance suspension on the C32 without inducing harsh ride or road noise compared with its lesser relatives, the C320 and C240. With a 0-60mph time of 4.9 seconds and a 1/4 mile at about 106, it can give some of the senior Porches something to worry about. But it sacrifices nothing a good sedan should be. Very roomy and comfortable inside, compact outside. In my opinion, this is the undiscovered gem of the year. The only downside is the $50,000 to $55,000 price of admission. But considering that it is a true luxury car that just happens to wipe out Porches, that may actually be a bargain.
Pros: Overall handling and performance
Cons: No scan feature on the radio
Advice: Test drive itThis car offers it all! If you like performance, fuel economy, and handling, this is the vehicle. I read all of the reviews, and for the most part they were accurate about the pluses and minuses of the design. Looks aren't the greatest, but the more you drive it, the better it looks.
Pros: Digital Controls
Cons: Horn Sound
Advice: Buy Buy BuyOn my test drive i took it to the nearby drag strip. this car can get up to the 175 +mph in about 15 seconds. my personal views on this car- Performance- Top Speed easily reached and kept Comfort- this car isnt meant for people that are over 6 ft 6 Potential Buyers- nice car but the black interior is easily dirtied. also if you attempt to customize the rims DONT it will throw off the cars settings. becuz the car has a 1 inch difference between front and rear. this care will be practically useless oncee customed rims are put on. but once the rims are put on you can get the car re set up for that size. Speed- fast accel and great top speed Closing Statements- this car is great and everything is great about it
Pros: the V6 engine
Cons: the gas milage
Advice: Beware of the gas milage claimsThis is a truely comfortable car to drive. I've owned the 4 cylinder also and the V6 is much smoother and quieter and plenty powerful. The fit and finish are excellent, although I have had some problems that are a little concerning to me such as the passenger window falling into the door, and the springs under both seats falling out. Minor, but irritating. The biggest surprise has been that the car does no better than 278 miles on a tank of gas, far short of what was claimed. I drive 148 miles each way to work, and have not gotten 300 miles from a tank yet.
Pros: the mach system
Cons: i dont like how the doors can be opened from the inside when they are locked
Advice: be careful it ha s alot of power but everyone should own oneI took a test drive in a 2002 mustang gt about 3 weeks ago i loved it so much i had to buy it i dont think their is anything anyone could hate about this car it handles well and is comfy... so i had to buy it
Advice: it goes fast, drive safe and smart.awsome
Cons: Some corners cut on interior, finish, etc.
Advice: Test drive it-You'll know right away if this car is your cup of tea!The WRX Sport wagon is in my opinion one of the best values on the maket. All-wheel drive combined with a turbocharged boxer engine produces some serious fun. The car accelerates with great speed, especially upwards of 3000 rpm, and corners with total precision. The car reacts beautifully to the driver-as an added plus, the wagon offers a fair amount of cargo space, and all models have full power and a decent sound system. I actually look forward to driving, even in traffic!
