    2002 Toyota Sienna - XLE

    Pros: Smooth ride

    Cons: Third row seating is difficult to get in and out of

    Advice: Buy XLE model with traction control. Get invoice pricing before you see dealer

    Overall the Sienna delivered an excellent ride. Punch the accelerator and it takes off. It handled well and has a soft suspension which gave a smooth ride. Excellent visibility all around. Comfortable and easy to get in and out of seating except third row seats. Getting in and out of third row is a chore. Interior is roomy and controls are well laid out. Overall an excellent choice for a mini van

    2003 Toyota Matrix - Standard AWD

    Pros: Combination of cargo room and good fuel economy

    Cons: Small gas tank on the 4WD (11.9 gal.)

    Advice: Pick up a better tire-iron, the one it comes with is wimpy.

    We got the Matrix 4WD since the winters in Wyoming can be harsh. Its acceleration is sufficient and its handling is quick and responsive. The Matrix is just about perfect for us; a couple just out of college. It is quite fun to drive. A hiccup we have noticed is that the 4-speed transmission shifts really hard as the car crests a hill. The only other concern was that as a new model we weren’t sure about the reliability. Since the Matrix has mostly Corrola guts we are optimistic.

    2002 Toyota Camry - LE (M5)

    Pros: quite ride

    Cons: none

    Advice: none

    Great Car! This is the second Camary 4 cylinder LE that I am purchsing. The first was 1992 version and it's still serving my family very well. 2002, Even though the car has been enlarged size/weight wise, the new 4 cyl engine seems to have more than enough power for the car. Also the standard equiptment on the LE version seems to have everything that I need from a car. i.e. CD player, power windows, AC. I went on a road trip this past weekend, and the 3 hr drive each way was just a 3 hrs of relaxation. =) My only complaint about the 2002 camary is that: 1. trasmission seems to catch a little abruptly when accelerating from a stop. 2. breaks seems to fade right before the car comes to a complete stop. It's initial bite on the brake is great, but at low speeds it wants to continue rolling, making me break extra hard the last few feet. Is anyone else having these problems?

    2002 Toyota Sequoia - SR5 4x2

    Pros: Nimble handling. Power

    Cons: fuel mileage

    Advice: If this is your first SUV, you'll be shocked by the fuel mileage.

    Easy to drive. Feels like your driving a car instead of a truck. Power delivery is smooth. Currently I'm averaging 17 mpg which i consider poor. (Note: This is my first SUV. My other car is a 1988 Corolla)

    2002 Toyota Tacoma - (M5) 4x4 Xtracab

    Pros: Smooth Ride for a Truck

    Cons: Little expensive

    Advice: Tocoma doesn't lose it's value...Trust me I know!

    I owned a 2001 Toyota Tacoma for about a year, before I rolled it. But thanx to the tough structure of the truck, the cab stayed in tact (Hense why I'm still here writing this). Needless to say...the truck was totalled but the value of the tacoma did not depreciate that much, so I was able to put a pretty sizeable down payment on a 2002 model. Thanx Toyota!!!

    2003 Toyota Matrix - Standard (M5) FWD

    Pros: Cute

    Cons: Problems already

    Advice: Wait a year till they work the bugs out.

    I bought the car 3 weeks ago and I already have problems. The check engine light and the headlight low beam indicator light both came on. I have to get a new 'oxygen sensor' from the manufacturer, whatever that is. I'm very dissapointed. I thought Toyota's where supposed to be reliable, expecially a NEW one! Has anyone else had problems w/ it already?

    2002 Toyota RAV4 - (M5) AWD

    Pros: The diesel engine is powerful and very economical

    Cons: The sound system which you'll just keep tuned to traffic news it's so mushy

    Advice: Buy one soon - it is the perfect second car

    Probably the best compact SUV on the market - if you've driven a normal SUV you will be amazed by 3 things. The handling which is taut like a VW Golf but very comfortable on poor surfaces, Its size which is much smaller on the outside than you would ever think. Its flexibility with rear seats that slide forwards, fold forwards or come right out.
