Pros

Not many people race this car

Cons

its an outdated model and in many years its gonna be hard to find parts for it

35

As I Said I Love It — Anyone who knows me knows i love my car!!! I take pride in it cuz its one of the few cavaliers on the road, its out of date so in many years its gonna be hard to find parts, the handling is great, its really good on gas and maintaining.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros

Good strong motor that has plenty of power for this car and gets great gas mileage for the power.

Cons

None really.

35

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.

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 :)
