>If you get the opportunity it would be great to hear your views on the >new 2003 model and do a comparison against the 98 model. Not likely to try another one. I wasn't that impressed with it. Not a bad looking car -- looks a lot like the Saab convertible. Rent one from Thrifty -- they usually have them at airport locations. A good way to find out if you like it or not. If you look, you can find just about anything at a rental agency and try before buying. I rented a Ford Focus from Enterprise when the alternator in my last car died a week before I was ready to buy the Saab. I had been looking at the Focus -- they have a real nice size micro-van I liked. Driving one for a week convinced me that I would never, ever want to buy that car. Nice around town but horribly noisy at highway speeds. And some fool designer decided it would be a great idea to put the cup holder on the floor where your ankle hits it every time you move from brake to accelerator. At least mine did. Most companies carry SUV's in different sizes and brands, mini-vans, passenger vans, etc. Thrifty rents the PT Cruiser. web design, print design, photography
