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.

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.)

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!!

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.

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

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.

Makes A Good First Vehicle, But By Now Farily Outdated In Todays Market. — Performance of this vehicle over the several years that I have owned it has been commendable in the fact that it still runs adequately. The acceleration of the vehicle leaves something to be desired however the braking and handling was quite surprising. Given the type of vehicle it is and its intended purpose I don't think it could be faulted to much. I have only recently had to deal with repairs outside of regular maintenance so I would rate the build quality as being good. Though the Cavalier does not have an eye catching appearance it isn't the worst looking car on the road. The fact that it is also easy enough to augment with several available body kits on the market. It has thus far been an easy vehicle to maintain. Being my vehicle for everyday commuting to work and errands it would cost me in the area of $25 to fill up every 2 weeks.

Awesome And Fast — Acceleration, Gas Mileage, Maintenance, Pretty fast for a 100% factory car. Five speed, smooth clutch, pretty awesome car overall. I'd consider buying a newer one in a few years because it is a very good car and VERY fast for factory.

The gas mileage

Cons

It is absolutely gutless.

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.

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.

A Pure Junk. — This car is the worst garbage can I ever own. Ok to pass on highway, great top mechanism (very simple to use), but the car itself was based on the regular car, and not reinforced to compensate the fact there was not top to hold everything together. The dash board was a real video game (lights everywhere). Visit to the dealer once a month for any reason.
