Pros

repairs are cheap and its good on gas

Cons

body rust is a big issue

55

Good Car For Someone On A Budget — car hands well for what it is. It is a typical chevy; it'll start to rattle with age and rust seems to be a real issue with the model. Its pretty slick to look at but its sporty look holds 4 cylinders; so its got 0 guts. however it does have great gas economy. over-all these cars are hard to kill; they'll drive until the body rust out from under you.

Pros

Looks good, rides nice, saves money.

Cons

No power

Cevy Cavalier — I'm not really a big fan of my car. It's fairly roomy for a small car, but because of the four-cylinder engine, it has no balls. Fuel economy is good, almost as good as a new hybrid. Does need body work, but that's all asthetic. Kind of fun to take around corners. It has a low center of gravity, so you can really get into a turn. I would recomend this car to someone in high school, it holds a bunch of stuff with the fold-down back seats, so you can extend into the trunk. Saves gas on money, and it looks pretty nice.

Enigma — While the car is fun to drive due to its sport suspension and 16" wheels & tires, the 2.4l engine leaves a lot to be desired when it comes to longevity. The engine in my car ventilated the block at about 93,000 miles after a long stint of engine knock due to a bearing (#3 I believe).

Nothing Flashy, Good Performance, Fuel Economy, Styling And Reliability For The Price Point. — Boasting 150 HP and 155 lb/ft or torque coupled with upgraded suspension including front sway bar and wide profile tires, the 2001 Chevrolet Cavalier Z24 provides excellent fuel economy with the best handling and acceleration in its class.

Pros

Sporty, Good Handling, Excellent Appearance, Reliable

Cons

Too Much Gas, Engine Noisy with A/C Running

35

Sexy Car! — This car is hot, inside and out. Its sporty has the RPM Gauge and everything and its even sporty and fun to drive. The engine isn't that bad 4 cylinder but it pulls as much as a 3.3L engine so not that good gas mileage. Stock sound system not bad either. Overall I'd say that this car is perfect for me! -Akhil

Great Value — I bought my 2001 brand new early that year. After 6 years, I don't have too many complaints. My car has been pretty solid for me and I've had very few problems with it. Having said this, the 2001 Cavalier doesn't have many bells and whistles. There is no CD player and not even a tape player. My radio is still going strong though. I did have a problem with part of my dashboard suffering some sun damage and cracking down the middle. But, this car gets it done and I didn't pay all that much for it. I am planning to trade it in soon though as I see it's time to do so.
