    2002 Ford Focus - ZTS (500A) Sedan

    Pros: The sporty ride at a low price....

    Cons: There is no tape deck

    Advice: Go for the Zetec engine

    The Focus is a great little 'Sporty' car for someone on a budget, or someone who wants a fun little car for long commutes. The other nice part is, there are many after market mods that give you lots of options.

    2002 Audi TT - L 180 HP (M5) quattro Quattro Coupe

    Pros: The CAR!!!!!!!

    Cons: That the ragtop was *not* available in Denim Blue for some strange reason.

    Advice: If you look at the car and have an unexplained desire in your soul

    I ordered 0401 and got 0801, longest 4 mos. of my life. It is exciting, wonderful, makes driving my *favorite* sport. I've had Chevy sport wannabees try to bring it on and they failed, dismally. It is possible to improve the outlook of my day just by driving my car. Truly extraordinary. Audi paid attention to *every* detail. One caveat, this car is probably not for those over 5'10', they have most of the visibility complaints I've heard. Total quality score should be about 95%. A few little things have had to be fixed.

    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 Volkswagen New Beetle - GLS TDI (M5)

    Pros: power of the TDI, power sunroof, and most of all, heated seats in winter!

    Cons: Have an 18 month old daughter, hard to use car seat in back, also the cup holders. The only oops in the car! Flower vase is plain, you can buy good looking aftermarket ones on the web.

    Advice: This is the perfect car for someone single or couple. Great roadtrip car. Test drive and you WILL be sold! I promise.

    I was first hesitant about size of vehicle cause I am a big guy. My test drive threw that out the window. Very comfortable, plenty of headroom for driver and passenger.Blown away with the power this car has. You will not be stuck behind semi's on hills with this gem!Gas milage is a bonus treat! 45 mpg on my automatic!
