I got a 2002 GLS this month, and I am
extremely happy about it. I looked at
Mazda Protege 5, Hyundai and Ford
Focus. I purchased the car primarily
for long weekend trips. Here is why the
car is the best choice: 1.Cheapest
Insurance rate 2.Good Power 3. Superior
features for its price point (none of
the competitors have 6 airbags, abs,
power everything, immobilizer, anti
theft and day time running lights)4.Low
depreciation 5.V. Large trunk (larger
than Jettas) and you can haul
everything when you put the seats down.
6.Increasing popularity (sales
increasing)7.Safest car in its class
My advise, test drive all the
competitors and see for yourself.
Monsoon, luxurious feel, safety
features and the overall drivability.
The car feels extremely safe at speeds
of 80, 90mph and overtaking 18 wheelers
is no prob, no 'floating'
Current owners should cease complaining
all the time about the small issues the
car has had.
