2002 Volkswagen Jetta - GLS 2.8L (EOP Week 40) (M5) Sedan
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.
2002 Ford Mustang - GT Deluxe (130A) Coupe
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
2002 Lexus IS 300 - Manual Sedan
Cons: too cramped in the rear passenger area
Advice: look into getting the A4 quattro 6sp for the same priceThe car handles nicely, but it is missing a lot of the amenities that the Audi A4 has. Such as, memory seats, heated rear, dual climate control, 6sp, awd, power trunk release, air bag release based on impact, rear seats fold down, 12-way electronically adjustable seats, free oil changes and scheduled services and a lot of rear legroom. The Lexus' rear passenger space is very limited and the seats do not come down to have access to the rear (only a ski pass-through in the armrest).
2002 Chevrolet Camaro - Z28 Coupe
Advice: it goes fast, drive safe and smart.awsome
2002 Toyota Celica - GTS (M6)
Advice: Buy a manual celica. If you don't know stick, then learn!The 2000+ celica is a great blend of looks, fun, performance, and practicality. The car handles great and has impressive acceleration for such a small engine. It takes some getting used to, but once you are acquainted with the high-reving 4-banger, you can really fly in this car. The hatchback trunk is huge and gets even bigger with the rear seats folded down. The GT-S gets good fuel mileage, but this is somewhat offset by its premium gas requirement. So if you want something unique, reliable, and fun, go for the celica.
2002 Honda Civic - EX (M5) Coupe
Pros: Sunroof & Keyless entry
Cons: Needs more horsepower
Advice: The upgrade to EX is definitely worth it.I purchased my Civic EX a week ago. I absolutely love it. For those in the market to buy a new car, the Civic is a perfect blend of style, safety, and price. You get a great deal for the money. If I could change anything with the Civic, it would be more Horsepower. The “get up and go” is just enough to make it acceptable… but I would like more. Overall I am obviously very happy with my choice. Kathy – Sacramento California
2002 Lexus SC 430 - Base
Cons: Speedometer cluster
Advice: Express interest but deal patientlyThis is by far the sweetest car I have ever owned!
