Default Test drove a 2001 SSEi...

...and I gotta say, I was less than impressed. I know mine is modded, but it seemed slower on acceleration than mine, probably because of "smoother" acceleration. The comfort was about the same as mine, and overall wasn't much different. So, I think I'll stick with what I have, she'* my baby.

As for the car itself, yeah, it'* awesome!! I love the styling too. But, I was comparing to mine, so what can I say. :P

Too bad your so far away, I'd let you take my 01 out for a ride, I think that might change your mind.

I am pretty sure he would like the 00+'* much better after he took yours for a ride.

You can make a 93 just as fast as an 01. I drove Rogues when he had the 3.2 on it, and over 400 lb/ft, but it didn't feel that fast. Too soft/controlled i think.

Not so much anymore with the Intense PCM

A stock 2001 SSEi is heavy, thats why they are so heavily modded. Still an incredible car.

I drove a black 2001 SSEi before I bought my 97....
It was a really nice ride..... but it was 2x the price of my 97.

The styling is great... but it does lack a bit in performance... due to the extra weight.
