Pros

Great fuel mileage and sporty looking.

Cons

Space is the main complaint, but the car isn't really designed to have a lot of room.

Great Fuel Mileage Vehicle! — The good things about the cavalier is it gets good gas mileage and still has a decent amount of power. Since this one is the Z24 it does have a sport look to it as well. Another great things is parts and maintenance are not really that expensive for this vehicle.

Very Unreliable — I bought my Cavalier new in 1999. It was in the shop at least once a month during the time I owned it.

I Love This Car — I like that it's a family car but still passes as a sporty car. I like that it is fuel efficient. Mine has child safety locks, which I love!! Was hoping for electric windows and door locks, but this one doesn't have them. I've been a proud owner of 4 cavaliers before this one!!

This Car Is Good For Gas And Projects — I like the fuel economy but the looks and power is not great. This car has no noise or blind spots. I am still building it. so in a few months the Power and Handling should increased. The look and style should so be good too.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

Comfortable, good ride, few problems. Mechanicals seem is good shape despite age.

Cons

Biggest issue is that it's getting old and starting to get worn out in some places. Paint is wearing off, some plastic parts are coming loose.

25

Reliable — Good car that gives us few problems. Always starts, runs well, is in the shop every 3-6 months for an oil change and usually something needs fixing (i.e. brakes or flat tire), but I'm stacking up the miles (500 per week). Would like something newer but if it ain't broke...

Pros

Quick to accelerate, brake, and corner.

Cons

Just not quick enough for me, and bda safety ratings. :(

Best Car I Have Owned To Date. :) — Quick! Similar class: Honda Civic/Integra (Acura), Volkswagon Golf, Mazda 3/6. Nissan Stanza/Sentra. I gots Dragon Cold Air, Zigen Exhaust, Uncivil Body Kit Red break pads for an extra 10hp! :) And neon green decals for another 5 hp! :P My 3rd and final cavalier, due to the fact that the 99' is the best year for the z24. LOL :P

Pros

I love everything except the fact that i dont drive it nearly enough.

Cons

Maintenance is a little much, but the vehicle is almost 13 years old. What would you expect?

35

Quick, Zippy, And Fun! — I've owned the Z24 for 16 months, and I have simply fell in love with it. Forget A to B, I've put over 35,000 miles on my baby since i bought it. It's quick to start, quick to stop, and it's been nothing but reliable.

ugly, slow

A Good Solid Car For Everyone! — A good basic car! Lots of room to add things to it. Solid and dependable.I just wanted a larger simple fuel efficient basic car which was not like a coffin like my last car the Firefly sedan. I wanted a car which would survive a crash and not kill me.It's only cost us a thousand at most in repairs to keep it going since we bought it. A great car for a socialist like me or a teenager wanting to rev it up and give it some speed.

Pros

The gas mileage

Cons

It is absolutely gutless.

25

My Cavalier — The car accelerates poorly. It is built cheaply and you can tell this by how loud it sounds on the highway. It does however get me from point a to point b and at 40 mpg i cant really complain.

Confortable, enough performance, good looking

Cons

High repair cost.

My Car — Even if it's a cavalier, this car is comfortable to drive. You are well seated and when you need power you press the pedal and you are served. This car have a good looking when you put some accessories on it.

Looks Nice, But Runs Crappy By Katie

It was a nice looking car for the '80's. When it ran, it didn't run very good. Beware the 2.8 MPFI V6. It was one of the crappiest motors GM ever made. It was slow to accellerate and needed a lot ... Read More
