2002 Toyota Tacoma - (M5) 4x4 Xtracab
Pros: TRD package
Cons: price price price
Advice: if you want a true off road truck this is iti have a 4x4 xcab 4banger toy with the TRD package with the locking dif. Let me tell you that this 4banger truck goes places most Z71's and other full size trucks could only dream. It's so refined and smooth yet it can play in the rough stuff too. It's truely a swiss army knife. It's priced high but i belive you get what you pay for as I owned a GMC and it was a hunk of junk.
2002 Toyota Avalon - XLS w/Bucket
Pros: CONTROLS ARE CLOSE TO YOUR HANDS, AND CAR RUNS ON REGULAR 87 OCT. GAS
Cons: LOOKS AND RUBBER TIMING BELT
Advice: IF STYLE IS'NT IMPORTANT THIS IS A GREAT CARVERY SMOOTH WITH AMPLE POWER. BRAKES FELT GOOD, AND STEREO SOUNDS PLEASING.
2002 Toyota Corolla - S (M5)
Pros: Good Sound, but too pricey CD player.
Cons: No Seat covers like the Echo
Advice: Remember, ~$1500-2000 less is invoice price.Good all-round, cute Spoiler. If you're in a hot area, remember interior color is important. Black=HOT! :) Pickup acceptable for vehicle (4 cyl) good gas, and control good. No ABS though :(
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 Toyota Sienna - LE
Pros: The seating and road handling.
Cons: The dealer and Toyota's lack of response in resolving simple problems.
Advice: Make sure the vehicle is 100% before you buy it. Find a good dealer and document any problems, don't be rushed. Check for damaged interior plastic parts.This van drives great. Like a car. It's fun to drive and offers most of the comforts of a car.
2002 Toyota Sequoia - SR5 4x4
Pros: Remote access to back window which goes up/down
Cons: big blind spot behind second row passenger side
Advice: you don't need the 'Limited' package. We have almost every feature but paid about 5k less.Love this SUV. Although it is large, it drives like a car. Handles well...doesn't feel like a big vehicle. Very comfortable. It doesn't fit in our garage but looks great in our driveway. Perfect size for our growing family. Very child seat friendly.
2002 Toyota Corolla - S (M5)
Pros: The daytime light
Cons: The exterior/interior style.
Advice: If you don't feel bored with the look, this will be a great car.I haven't driven one yet, but I used to go with my friend for a test drive (My friend tested it). I really like this car, but I feel bored with the exterior and interior because it is somewhat new. Unlike Corolla in USA, I have seen 2002 Corolla in Asia, and it looks nicer because it is completely changed both Interiors and exterior.
