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.

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.

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.

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.

With Parts Being Cheap For This Car And An Engine That Can Last Forever Ull Keep It Around Forever. — It get very good gas mileage, with 38/Highway and 34/city the little 4 banger gets uo and goes pretty easily and it was just overall fun to to drive. I would buy it again. It was always very realiable and i only ever had 1 problem with the power steering but it was fixed pretty easily.

Fun to drive because you dont care if you bag it

Cons

Breaks down alot because it sucks so much you want to bag it

25

1999 Cavalier — My car is an overall peice of crap... breaks down constantly, sounds horrible, drives even worst, and nobody in the world has ever liked the looks of a cavalier :P Fun to drift, fun to put the pedal to the floor just beacuse it sounds like its going fast, but really your still going 30kph

Pros

cheap, fuel efficient, standard

Cons

if you cant drive standard

25

Good Times — Accelerates and handles well, IF you can drive standard. Lots of rust, but i blame poor car care for that, she handed me a can of paint and said "this is to cover the rust". Interior is nice, and i like to look of the exterior. Cheap to buy, really good on gas, maintenance, nothing you couldn't do yourself if you had the time and a bit of skill. Love the 5 speed, really fun to drive.

Pros

A lot of bang for your buck

Cons

Problematic

25

Quite A Bit Of Bang For Your Buck But Don't Expect To Drive Years On End Without Replacing A Parts. — I dislike that the Cavaliers are very unreliable cars. I hate that they are known for blowing headgaskets, struts are know to go and crack interior pieces near windshields and that wheel bearings are a known thing to replace on them. Very nice ride though. I suggest 5 speed. But they are very tourquey 5 speed. Trust me on that one. Burn rubber through first and second gear. And about 195+km/h factory engine depending on how much you bag it. And also that slave cylinders are a another known part to go. I like mine though. They can look unreal if you mod them. (Bodykit, spoiler, rims, performance exhaust pipe, window tint, etc.) Overall: Quite a bit of bang for your buck but don't expect to drive years on end without replacing a couple parts.

It was 2nd hand when we got it and has lasted 20 years

Cons

the repairs we've had to make

25

Good Solid Car, Not A Sports Car But Def. Better Than Walking — Good on Gravel, fairly solid. Lots of squeaks and rattles. Not that great on gas, seen better and worse. Looks like what it is; A family car. It's ok to drive, wouldn't say that its real fun, but not hard either.

Pros

Quick, Sporty, Good Handling

Cons

Basic, No Options

55

Chevy Cavalier Coupe — This could be a very nice car. The RS though, has absolutely no options. The higher end Cavaliers though are very nice. Mine had power nothing. No power windows, no power locks, NOTHING. The car was quick, sporty look. The 25% tint made look nice and mean.

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