Pros

I love how finding parts to fix it is easy to find.

Cons

It's a common car.

A Beginners Car — This car can either be your reliable friend or it can be a hastle. Since it's a common enough car and there's lots of them in junk yards, finding parts for them is easy. But since they are common, finding a unique perspective of it can be difficult. I once had a hard time finding my car in a parking lot because there were four similar ones...

I Do Love My Little Car — Its small but tough drives like a truck kind of rough but has done me good untill now. Its hard to keep up on minor repairs on a small budget. All and all it has been dependable. Now not so much. Scared I'm gonna loose my job because of my car issues. But I will always choose a Chevy or a ford over anything else. I have had many makes and models so far this car has been the best

This car has never needed to be in the shop. The gas mileage, maintenance, and repair costs were fair.

Red Cavalier With Black Stars On It — I liked the fact that this car was reliable. It was worth the price I bought it for. It gets good gas mileage and is low maintenance. I enjoyed the car for the time i had it, but im ready for something new and nicer.

I Would Get One In A 5 Speed — fun summer cruiser. doesnt get the mileage i had hoped for but it looks sharp flying down the track. i was impressed by how nice it takes a curve at 50 and it definately needs to be a 5 speed

Pros

The overall platform is easy to work with and can be made into many things. Has many supporting websites.

Cons

The aftermarket takes some knowledge to get the best parts from.

It Is A Great Car That Fits Many Different Lifestyles. — Car has been reliable for well over 260000km. Gets great fuel economy, and responds well to various mods. Fairly easy to get decently high performance and very fun to drive. Has become a competitive bracket racer with very little work.

Beautiful Design And The Pick Up The Little Car Has — I once own a 2001 Chevy Cavalier LS and during the six years that I own it I never had any serious issues except the fuel pump and fuel filter and a oil leak other than that this car was very reliable and cheap to repair. I could just jump on the free way and head out of town with out worrying about any issues, this little 4cycl. 2.4 ltr had a little zip to it, step on the gas and it has a get up and go. My only complaint about this car is the cheap plastic on the dash board gm puts in it and the cheap seats.

Caz's Kickass Cavalier! — My Chevy Cavalier is pretty much amazing. It rides great. It has 155,000 miles on it and I have had no problems with it. It's a damn good car considering that I only paid $1,800 for it. It gets like 24 miles to the gallon and I love it! ^_^
