    2003 Pontiac Vibe - Base FWD

    Pros: The driver controls and instrumentation

    Cons: I honestly haven't found a feature I dislike...sorry!

    Advice: Drive

    It is fun to drive my new 2003 Vibe. Once you're behind the wheel, the experience begins to unfold as you close the door(quality sound) and gaze at the interior design and spaciousness. The Vibe's fit and finish is very good. The driving experience is comfortable, quiet, responsive and secure. For $19,000 this is a well equipped vehicle that is very versatile in it's ability to carry passengers and parcels. A road test is a must to experience this new design, the new age 'station-wagon' of efficiency.

    2002 Audi A4 - T (M5) quattro Sedan

    Pros: Quattro ESP

    Cons: Width of centre console

    Advice: Take it round a tight hairpin at 60mph in the wet. It surprised the hell out of me how stable it was.

    The handling in poor/slippery conditions is unparallelled. Quite simply this car had the best balance of comfort, luxury, looks, performance and price. Also it's not as common as a 3 series...yet !

    2003 Toyota Matrix - XR (M5) FWD

    Pros: body styling

    Cons: does not come standard with ABS

    Advice: Get it now before it goes into high demand!

    Ride is smooth except for large bumps (such as speedbumps). Controls comfortably accessable. Excellent handling. Spaceous. A very good buy.

    2003 Toyota Matrix - XR (M5) FWD

    Pros: Fold down front seat

    Cons: The high center arm rest makes it difficult to buckle your seatbelt.

    Advice: get the cold weather package. It heats up SOOO fast.

    The car is quite quick off the line but starts to loose its punch at about 30 mph. The car handles great with the 17' alloy wheels. I'm 6'4' and pretty wide at the sholders and I fit into the car without any problem, and I don't have to strugle to get out because the seats are higher than any compact car I have ever been in. The only thing that I would have liked to have seen is plastic grocrie bag holders attached to the back of the rear seats so things don't roll all over the place when cornering. Oh and Why didn't they put in a 3 prong outlet?? I had to get an adapter for my laptop.

    2003 Pontiac Vibe - Base FWD

    Pros: INSTRAMENTATION

    Cons: NOTHING

    Advice: BUY IT IT IS HOT

    THE VIBE WAS VERY ROOMY, TIGHT HANDLING, AND COMFORTABLE. I THOUGHT IT WAS VERY ATTRACTIVE LOOKING. THE HOTTEST THING HOWEVER I THOUGHT WAS THE INSTRUMENTATION THE DEEP RED BACKLIT GAUGES WHERE JUST GORGEOUS. THE ROOMINESS IN THE REAR WAS JUST AMAZING. I THOUGHT THIS VEHICLE OVERALL IS A HUGE HIT!

    2002 Audi A4 - T (M5) quattro Sedan

    Pros: Quattro

    Cons: remote trunk release location

    Advice: you must test drive this car before buying another make

    This is my 3rd Quattro in 11 years, and this is the best (plus 2 Beemers). The 1.8T engine is amazing, but a 6 speed would help to bring the rev's down on the freeway. The standard suspension (w/16in wheels/all season tires) is outstanding, and plenty firm enough - unless you want to autocross! I'm 6ft, and rear seat room is fine, if you need more buy an A6. In short this is one terrific sport sedan.
