Pros

great on gas...and atleast it looks good

Cons

no performance what so ever....but in a first car that shouldn't be an Issue

An Ideal First Car — For a first car it is awesome....its quick in a modest sense and has fairly a nice colour (mayan gold) and it isn't rice. More importantly, it's a first car to have fun with, not a speed machine or a rally car and I won't ever expect that out of this little car, but since i put on 500km and went through only 1.5 full tanks of gass its great, little to no maintenance, and parts are dirt cheap

Cons

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

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its an outdated model and in many years its gonna be hard to find parts for it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 I take pride in it cuz its one of the few cavaliers on the road, its out of date so in many years its gonna be hard to find parts, the handling is great, its really good on gas and maintaining.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.)

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

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

The car is great! Sound system rocks!

Cons

nothing really bad..little things here and there

35

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!

Looks Nice, But Runs Crappy By Katie

It was a nice looking car for the '80's. When it ran, it didn't run very good. Beware the 2.8 MPFI V6. It was one of the crappiest motors GM ever made. It was slow to accellerate and needed a lot ... Read More

One of the Ugliest Cars ever produced! Decent Fuel Mileage. Simply your average 80's compact sedan powered by an anemic four banger. Was a pretty reliable car until I threw a piston rod in the m... Read More
