    2002 Volkswagen GTI - VR6 (EOP 9/16/01) (M5)

    Pros: The VR6 Engine

    Cons: Entry to the backseat is a bit weird

    Advice: Wait for the 2002 version which is supposedly going to have even more horses

    Traded in my $35,000 (96 prices) 3-series BMW for a 2001 GTI and this car kicks the BMW's ass. Have had the GTI for just over a year now and have had zero problems with the car and it is still a blast to drive. Quality, performance, comfort, style, and features are comparable or beat cars that are much more expensive.

    2002 Honda Civic - EX (M5) Sedan

    Pros: The moonroof and cruise control (a must have for me)

    Cons: The small-car

    Advice: Do your online research first.

    This car handles very well. The ride is rougher than I was used to but then I was currently driving a larger car and used to a smoother ride. However, I enjoyed the test drive so much I bought it!

    2002 Volkswagen GTI - L (M5)

    Pros: INTERIOR ROOM

    Cons: Outside mirrors should be enlarged

    Advice: Buy it before the price goes up

    Kudos to VW for making a compact and roomy auto that is fun to drive. I am 6'3' tall and I have plenty of head, sholder and leg room. The car has plenty of cargo room. Acceleration and handeling performance are outstanding for any vehicle, particularly one priced less than $25,000. I have never owned a VW befor, so long as VW continues to provide this kind of quality and value, I will be a loyal customer!

    2002 Mercedes-Benz C-Class - C230 Coupe

    Pros: THE SUNROOF, you have to see it to believe it.

    Cons: Rear styling could be better.

    Advice: Get the Pan. sunroof and leather (C5 pakage)

    I am a diehard Volkswagon nut. However when I first saw this car I feel in love. Plain and simple, It was just fun to drive. I had to have it. The one thing I don't like about it is the wait to own one. If you order the leather, which is the only way to go, be prepared to wait, and wait, and wait.

    2002 Acura RSX - Base (M5)

    Pros: Luxury dealer

    Cons: Harsh Ride

    Advice: Perfect small coupe

    Great small car. Handles very well. Lots of scoot. A bit too much road noise comes in thru the chassis. Ride is a bit harsh, but for a sporty car it's OK. Great automatic climate control. Great stereo. Not at all 'buzzy' for a four-banger.
