My "moody" — I bought this car myself.It's my official first car. In my name and everything! I'm still making payments on it and it's already been in an accident ( while it was parked in a parking lot, with out me even near it!!). When I bought it, I was looking for a totally 'no extras' kind of car and 'she' matched. I've even named her, lol, "Moody". I think she's awesome.

Pros

inexpensive, reliable transportation, no timing belt

Cons

resale value is poor, american car build quality, nothing special or unique about it

35

Good Daily Transportation, But Nothing Special. Get A Loaded One-base Models Are Ugly. — the 2.2 L DOHC Ecotec 4 cyl 140 horse engine is spunky-very easy to burn rubber off the line be careful in the rain-too easy to accidentally spin the tires at traffic lights good mpg 27-28 city, haven't tested highway mpg yet low enough compression to not require high octane fuel fit and finish of dash and plastics is poor sound system is very good bright red, looks nice-mine has factory ground effects package, decklid spoiler, fog lights, moon roof, 16 inch alloy wheels a little noisy only 3k RPM at 80 mph feels a little flimsy relatively cheap to repair, and mechanics don't refuse to touch it (like they did with my VW, which was a much better car)

Pros

Everything not a con

Cons

Glovebox rattle, stupid oil filter location.

35

Reliable And Easy To Maintain — Car performs well, especially for what they cost. Handles as well as can be expected, accelerates well, and brakes well. Build quality is excellent for what it is. Sure there's some cheap plastic in parts of the interior and the glove box rattles, but it's not a luxury car. I like the exterior styling and mine has the "Sport Appearance" package. It doesn't go faster, but it looks much less boring than stock. Gas mileage is good, maintenance is easy. The only hard part is they stuck the oil filter behind the engine and above the exhaust so you have to take off the passenger wheel to get to it and then spill oil onto the exhaust to get burned off. Get a set of sticky tires and it's very fun to drive.

Cavaliers Are Fabulous! — I love my car! It is one of the 4 cavaliers i have owned! I currently have this one and an88 z24. Never had had any problems other than routine maintenance until i added an aftermarket performance header. It added a lof of power but it gets extremely hot and will burn a hole in the power steering line if the header is not properly wrapped with header wrap. now that we fixed the problem it runs like a champ and i think they should bring back the cavy!!!
