Pros

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

65

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.)

Good gas mileage, great maneuverability, Delilah blue.

Cons

Slow, was totalled easily.

Great First Car. — This was a great first car, I fell in love with it when I first saw it on the dealership lot. For the most part it was carefree as far as maintenance, for the most part whatever went wrong was covered by the warranty. Very maneuverable as I found out by weaving in-between cars on the highway, could cruise at 109 MPH when you really had to get to the next town to pee!

Pros

Gas mileage. Maneuverability in traffic

Cons

Looks need work

My Car — It gets amazing gas mileage bout 32mpg put on a new spoilerso it looks better and new rims and new air intake.. Good maneuverability in traffic. But sucks in winter months and is starting to rust below and behind the doors and needs centerpieces for rims and needs holes filled where spoiler doesnt cover the stock one.

Pros

good gas mileage, dependable

Cons

small, not as comfortable as midsize cars

25

Chevy Cavalier — My cavalier was black and the appearance was very sharp when it was new. The interior looked good too, but was very small and not very comfortable when taking longer trips. But it got great gas mileage and has lasted me until now and is still running well. I had one accident with it and had to have the driver side front side replaced, it was easy to replace most items and you can hardly tell it was redone. The car ran very smoothly when it was new and I could easily get it out to 100 on the freeway with out even realizing I was going that fast (until I got a ticket of course), but now it is harder to get it going at that speed, but not unrealistic for its age. Overall a very solid auto that will probably last me at least a couple more years...cheap & affordable for those on a budget, but I don't think they make the Cavalier anymore so unfortunately you cannot purchase one if you were interested.

Pros

The motor is great. It has good gas mileage.

Cons

The electrical in my car is really bad. The lights could be fixed a dozen times, and bulbs still go out.

25

There Are Definitely Better Cars Out There. — The electrical in my car is really bad. Alot of major parts are going on it now and need replacing, but likely because of the age of the car. It is a 1999. The motor in it runs great. The steering, exhaust, struts, and wheel bearings have already been replaced.

Pros

the accelartion, the look, the speed

Cons

the ac is broken, the window

25

About My Car — The acceleration is ok not the best, but you are pushed back into your seats just a little. Its really old car like 125,000 miles on it but it runs really good. I think its a fun car to drive, because it looks very sportesy.

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
