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.

I Love My Car! — My car is really good on gas, and tends to be a little speed demon... I swear its not me. lol The only thing I dont care for is the 4 door but hey can have everything. This car is definetly fun to drive and lots of storage space in the trunk and back seat so thats a plus I guess :)

The car is great! Sound system rocks!

Cons

nothing really bad..little things here and there

The Cav! — I love the system in my car! It sounds great and the only way to listen to music is with a system! I like my rims and tint, it makes my car look nice! The car runs good, braking and handling are good. it doesnt need any repairs that i know of...and i have a good time driving it! I hate that my car is slow, and i hate that it revs when my air condition is on! But i have to say i do love my car, because it gets me where i need to go and even though its slow, i like cruising in it and listening to music in it. It is a nice little car to have for now! and im excited because i just finished paying it off! and that feels great! But within the next year i hope on getting a new car!

Great gas mileage. Kept me alive when I rolled it!

Cons

Minor damage from roll over and lots of speeding tickets in this things.. And its way too small of a vehicle for me to drive...

Great Gas Mileage — Bought this car in Feb of 2002 with 4 miles on it... It now has 110,000 miles and the only things that I have had to replace were 2 bushings in the front suspension that cost me $10 ea. I think on the routine note, 2 batteries, oil changes and tune up at 105,000....

Cavy — It get's me places, and it looks nice for the most part. Lacking in hp with a dinky 4 cylinder, but it's got 16s that are always clean. Haha, it's fun for the most part.

Love For The Cavalier — Its got a small engine, but its got a lot of humph which I love. Also the car is made in the states which is hard to find these days. I'm also very pleased with this car because I've had it for 4 years and I've yet to take it in to the shop. It just doesn't need a lot of work.
