    2002 Audi A4 - 3.0 (M6) quattro Sedan

    Pros: quattro

    Cons: large blind spot(big C-pillar and rear head rest)

    Advice: test drive and experience the quattro technology

    This is my first Audi and quattro vehicle. I thought Audi did great job with styling of 2000-2001 model but I am impressed more with 2002 model style. Drive very solid, quiet and very luxurious. Quattro handles like a champ in the rain, no other can much that. There seem to be one second lag when you step on the pedal, then with sudden acceleration. I love the fold out side mirror, drawer under the front seat and automatic sunshade option.

    2002 Audi A4 - 3.0 (M6) quattro Sedan

    Pros: External shape and beauty of the body.

    Cons: Engine could have used another 30 horses

    Advice: Drive your car for 20+ miles to see if any unnecessary warning lights come on, before you buy or lease this vehicle

    Drives great...beware of electrical problems that began with only 6 miles on my odometer! Now its in the shop for my anti-lock brake and traction control warning lights that come on when they feel like it. Audi can't fix it yet either....so I'm headed for my 4th day in the shop, almost in the shop more than I've had it on the road. Car looks great, handles well, has everything right but (perhaps) the quality will not end up being so good?

    2003 Pontiac Vibe - GT FWD

    Pros: Appearance

    Cons: price

    Advice: get a deal or get a matrix

    I liked the pontiac vibe overall but I feel that the matrix may be the better value since it is essentially the same car I am a long time pontiac owner and currently have a 1978 y 88 T/A and a 1999 30th anv. T/A

    2003 Pontiac Vibe - GT FWD

    Pros: handling and comfort

    Cons: I haven't found anything yet.

    Advice: test drive and enjoy

    The moment I sat behind the wheel I knew this was the car for me. It's very comfortable and handles great. The sound system and roominess make it a pleasure to drive. I've owned my Vibe for a month now, and did have a scare. About three weeks after purchasing my Vibe it wouldn't idle. I took it to the dealership and there was a small glitch in the computer system that had to be reset. Since then it has run fine. I was expecting maybe something like that would happen in a brand new model. I would still reccommend this car to anyone. It's a great ride.

    2002 Audi A4 - 3.0 (M6) quattro Sedan

    Pros: Standard 6 disk in dash CD player & power folding mirrors

    Cons: Wheel selection

    Advice: A6 3.0 is a better deal than a fully loaded A4 3.0 Go for the A6!!

    My wife drives a 96 A4 and we loved the way it drives, however the back seat is way too small. The A6 3.0 Q is a great bargian for a sport/luxury car and Audi is the best at all wheel drive. The lighter engine gives the A6 excellent acceleration and with the tipronic it is a fun car to drive. Some question the The non-linear steering but I like it. This is an awesome automoblie for the price.

    2002 Audi A4 - 3.0 (M6) quattro Sedan

    Pros: road feel

    Cons: functional look

    Advice: get it!

    What an experience. New 2002 A4 3 litre is without a doubt the best/performance/price value I have ever experienced. (I have owned a BMW Z M, 530i, 325xi, Jag 3.0 X type, in both manual and automatic versions). The A4 has throaty power and performance and holds the road like you are driving on railroad tracks. It is very roomy inside and beautifully appointed.This new version looks like last year's A6 sizewize. Fully loaded, with all the feattures, it was $35,000. Unbelievable!

    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.
