    2002 Hyundai Elantra - (M5) Sedan

    Pros: The many convenience and safety features of the car.

    Cons: The poor quality of the fit for interior trim and components has been an onging problem.

    Advice: Test drive and exam the vehicle you intend to buy. Do not accept a substitute.

    The 2.0 liter engine delivers plenty of power, but the transmission seems unable to find the right gear at speeds lower than highway cruising.

    2002 Toyota Celica - GT (M5)

    Pros: Handling

    Cons: Power

    Advice: If you want something sporty that handles the road nice; then the Toyota Celica is for you! All your friends will envy you!

    I own a 2001 Celica and it is my first car! I love the handling and sporty looks of the car! It holds the road very nicely and the braking and acceleration are very precise. I know that in the future when I am looking to buying a newer car, I will definitly consider buying another Toyota Celica!

    2002 Mercedes-Benz C-Class - C 32 AMG Sedan

    Pros: Combination of extreme performance and luxury sedan amenities

    Cons: Nothing, that I could see

    Advice: If you are looking for a performance sedan, drive this one first

    To start, I must confess that I do not yet own one of these. It will take me a few months to raise the price of admission, and then I will own one. But, I certainly have test driven one. With 349 hp up high on the tach and 331 lbs/ft of torque down low, this is a performer, plus. The best and quickest way to describe it is as follows: A friend just bought a new Corvette automatic. I drove his car and was really impressed by the 'pull', but thought it not quite a true sports car by my definition. I said that I wished someone would make a car that performs like that, only in a more refined four door sedan. Well, someone has, and that car is the C32 AMG. Refinement is excellent, and makes the BMW M3 feel like driving a tractor! MB managed to put great performance suspension on the C32 without inducing harsh ride or road noise compared with its lesser relatives, the C320 and C240. With a 0-60mph time of 4.9 seconds and a 1/4 mile at about 106, it can give some of the senior Porches something to worry about. But it sacrifices nothing a good sedan should be. Very roomy and comfortable inside, compact outside. In my opinion, this is the undiscovered gem of the year. The only downside is the $50,000 to $55,000 price of admission. But considering that it is a true luxury car that just happens to wipe out Porches, that may actually be a bargain.

    2002 Toyota Celica - GTS (M6)

    Pros: Handling

    Cons: Visibility

    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 Volkswagen GTI - VR6 (EOP 9/16/01) (M5)

    Pros: The VR6 Engine

    Cons: Entry to the backseat is a bit weird

    Advice: Wait for the 2002 version which is supposedly going to have even more horses

    Traded in my $35,000 (96 prices) 3-series BMW for a 2001 GTI and this car kicks the BMW's ass. Have had the GTI for just over a year now and have had zero problems with the car and it is still a blast to drive. Quality, performance, comfort, style, and features are comparable or beat cars that are much more expensive.

    2002 Volkswagen GTI - L (M5)

    Pros: INTERIOR ROOM

    Cons: Outside mirrors should be enlarged

    Advice: Buy it before the price goes up

    Kudos to VW for making a compact and roomy auto that is fun to drive. I am 6'3' tall and I have plenty of head, sholder and leg room. The car has plenty of cargo room. Acceleration and handeling performance are outstanding for any vehicle, particularly one priced less than $25,000. I have never owned a VW befor, so long as VW continues to provide this kind of quality and value, I will be a loyal customer!
