Too small

Good Car. — I love it I just wish that it was bigger. Not a lot of room for the kids. It is good on gas and a easy drive. I do love it just wish it was bigger. Love the interior. Only a few dings.

An Awesome Car That Looks And Sounds Sick. — I have a low body kit on mine with a rear spoiler. And my exhaust sounds sweet. I bought it 2 weeks ago and have enjoyed divng it since. It handles great and sounds even better. I love my car!!!

Pros

189,000 miles and still going!

Cons

No options, not anything special at all.

65

Sux, But It Will Work For Now. — What do you expect out of a low-end,base model, General Motors vehicle. I use it to get to work and back, it'll do until I can save up and buy one I like! The gas mileage is between 23-35 miles per gallon, and it does have 189 k miles and still going strong, so I give it some credit. But it's an auto and I need my stick back!

Pros

Nearly 40 MPG

Cons

the slowest car I've ever own (also the first car I've owned with an engine less than 5.0L in displacment)

65

It's Just A Damn Cavy — Good daily driver, Nice shifting 5 speed, 39.7 MPG highway! The 2200 SFI can take quite a bit of punishment, Its construction is a lot better than 2nd gen J's, it's been very reliable, but, the stock suspension Sucks! Worst ABS system I've ever encountered, and stock seating is not the most comfortable.

Cons

None really.

2002 Cavalier Sport — Overall I couldn't ask for a better car. The pick up is like no other yet I've gotten 34 miles to the gallon on the highway and I get 26+ in town. This car has never let me down and would highly recommend it to anyone who asks about it.

Pros

Handles great, nice royal blue in color

Cons

Still have to make payments on it.

25

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.
