My First New Car — When I first got in this car, it felt so sporty! The green color (leaf green, not the dark green) called me. I never really liked green as a color, but that green car had something about it!

Small, Quick, Decent — nice little car with above average performance, (but not much above average). not that kewl to look at cuz they're so common, automatic definatly not as fun to drive as the 5 speed.

Pros

it is a 5 speed

Cons

it is a chevy, what else do i have to say (you can just look at the review to see what is wrong with it)

25

Just A Beater — i already replaced the radiator and the shifter nob because it got chewed up, the clutch is going out and it needs a new water pump, the trunk lid is dented in and the rear bumper has a few holes in it and is a little melted from the exaust pipe not being long enough or pointing down, the hood doesnt close all the way because the bracket is missing a bolt so the bracket moves when you close it but it latches on the saftey, the shifter doesnt want to shift into reverse very well and sometimes doesnt want to shift into first, and it has a dent in the front passenger side door, and that is what is wrong with it other than it is a chevy

A Friend Told Me About Her Car.... — everyone i ever talked to that owned a cavalier says its a great car and doesnt have problems, one person i know has a 99 base 2 door and she always tells me how she loves the car, i have riden in it and it drives very smoothly, and she says the clutch went once and thats the only problem shes had. a lot of bang for the buck

It's Been A Great Car Overall — I bought it as used and just had to recently replace the engine at 146,000 miles. I put alot of miles on it and my only complaint was the loss of airconditioning three years ago

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

One of the Ugliest Cars ever produced! Decent Fuel Mileage. Simply your average 80's compact sedan powered by an anemic four banger. Was a pretty reliable car until I threw a piston rod in the m... Read More
