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.

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).

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

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.
