    2002 Toyota Camry - LE (M5)

    Pros: Toyotas reputation for qaulity cars.

    Cons: Radio volume control a little hard for us with larger fingers.

    Advice: Drive and compare, it does all the speaking for itself.

    The new styling originally won us over. When we test drove it, I was impressed with the power from the four cylinder. The standard equipment was impressive also. When the salesman explained all the safety features on this car we were sold. Hardest part was picking the color (Black walnut pearl).

    2002 Hyundai Accent - L (M5) Hatchback

    Pros: reliability

    Cons: feels cheap and possibly less safe as some others in its class.

    Advice: Just getting to and from places at a low cost buy the car.

    98 thousand miles not a single problem except for a master slave clutch cylender covered under warrenty. I've abused this car and it has not sought retrobution. I've only change dthe oil 5 times and replaced the front brak pads once. The car still seems to be going strong. For the price it cant be beat. Going up hills it passes the Hondas and other subcompacts. It may be the fuel injection. It revs out with noise at about 80mph but can go to 90 or 95 without a problm for short periods. For the price and reliability and function of getting from point a to b its a great car.

    2002 Ford Focus - ZTW (420A) Wagon

    Pros: Handling

    Cons: Could use a bit more power going up hills here in Atlanta

    Advice: Test drive in both traffic and open road conditions.

    Just took delivery and have less than 1500 miles. Atlanta traffic was killing my 99 Grand Marquis and went to a more practical car. Best move I have made. Very nimble, quick in and out of traffic. Brakes very solid.

    2002 Chevrolet TrailBlazer - LS 4x2

    Pros: Engine. 270 hp

    Cons: Rear lift gate hard to close.

    Advice: Pay for what you want because you earned the money.

    Look at the options wanted then the ones needed and this model seems well equiped. I have option group 3 which added keyless entry and cruise control. Chevrolet could come off a couple dollars and make these standard but I bought one anyways. Nice feel for a 4600 lb vehicle. Good acceleration. Traded in a sport sedan (Grand Prix GTP). Needed the room for the baby on the way. You do have to get used to the seatbelts that come from the seat. Look: 4 airbags for safety, 2 front and 2 front side w/ 4 wheel discs and ABS.

    2002 BMW M3 - Convertible

    Pros: SMG gear box

    Cons: interior, dont pay extra for the HK sound, not worth it

    Advice: get SMG,

    this car reminds me when I drove a GoCart for the first time. Fun! Fun! Fun!, Especially with the SMG paddles, it's Grand Tourismo 2 in real life.
