Pros

Its a good looking car i think from the best era chevrolet had, runs fine, believe its cheap on fuel, spacious, just put a new battery in there, everything works fine on it.

Cons

There is an issue with the ignition as it takes a bit of fiddling wit it to turn the key but it can be done and it has some rust that cant be cleaned.

A Damn Fine Machine — The only thing i didn't like about this car was the condition it was given to me in with all the rust and issues with the battery other than that its a damn fine machine,thats cheap on gas. Its also a standard which i herd is rare for its kind so i kind of lucked out there.

Great Little Car If You Don't Want Room. — Honestly, I didn't even want it, but it was a car. It grew on me and it wasn't that bad. It was a pretty fun and spunky little four banger.Until the brakes decided to fail on us. Maybe someone was trying to kill us! :O

Blue Beast — I bought this car to drive to work, 90 miles a day. It's good on gas for a 6 cylinder and is fun to drive with the top down. It get a few looks on the highway, for being such an old car. I LOVE this little beast.

It's Cheap, But Its Also Cheap — This car is good for a starter car, because it was cheap as in inexpensive to acquire. It was also fairly inexpensive to maintain, as there were a lot of similar cars on the road to provide cheap parts. However, its also cheap as in poorly made. The trim is very plastic-y and its not a car for looks. If cost was your only measure, this is the car for you

Fun Fun Fun — I had so much fun in this car, from Winnipeg to Peace River and back again several trips. It took me from North Dakota to the Northwest Territories, so many memories. If they still made this body style I would buy another, but alas, Chevy decided to make a lesser crappier version just after I bought this one. The cavalier is no more, but Chevrolet lives on thanks to government bailouts!

It Has Its Minor Flaws But All And All It A Great Car — the car has been a good car for me in the 2 years i have own it. the performence isn't the best but its not the worse. the car is fun to drive and handles ok. it sucks in snow however. the car has probelms with the starter. i 've put to in since i bought it. repairs are cheap and easy. oil changes are harder to do then some other repairs. the car looks better then the 95 round body style. the mpg are around 25.

I Wish I Hadn't Totalled It. — I bought this car in 1997 and drove it for less than a month due to driving it off the road on the north side of cedar lake in minnesota. It was totalled. The time I did have to drive it was very pleasant. it had the big V6 and really had some get up. It was fun to drive and reliable. It had not a single flaw in the paint or the top. However, when i crashed it.... the seatbelt failed and I put my head through the windshield.

Gm Started Out Alright With Their Efi Inline 4-cyl, 76,xxx Miles And Still Strong. — Reliable, but falls apart... Like any car of the early 90's lol. - Performance - 2.2 inline 4, 110 WHP/ 130lb torque, 4wh. ABS, back drums. Pretty good handling for a compact car, but not completely autobahn/landstrasse worthy. - Build Quality - Needed no major repairs, just tires, typical electrical system (Alternator, Battery, etc.) Plugs, Wires, Brakes, Oil and oil/air filters. - Appearance - Looks okay for a sporty, yet economical 90's 4-cyl car. Comfortable, yet practical interior. Exterior with black trimming looks pretty crappy. Tears off, or breaks off. Otherwise coloring and detailing is pretty reasonable. - Cost of Ownership - The car gets an average of 33 mpg, being that it's a 5 speed. On longer trips, I've calculated an average of 38.7 MPG on HIGHWAY. In TOWN, I get about 28/29 MPG. Maintenence is relatively cheap, whether needing new, rebuilt, or refurbished parts. Junk yards are pretty cavalier-friendly. Parts for these cars are found almost in any Autoparts store. Otherwise, in the next few years, they'll be going out of stock!! This car is pretty fun to drive, whether hot roddin' it up (purrs when dormant, roars when anxious..) or just cruisin' around the block. I'd definitely buy another Cavalier... or their replacement, the COBALT. :)
