Cons

its not fast enough yet

My Car Can Be Used For Anything From Daily Driving To Racing If You Put The Time And Money Into It — For as long as i've had this car i've put very little money into it compared to all of my other vehicles. as for the MPG its fairly decent at 28-29 City, 34-36 Highway. For it only being a baseline model it leaves room for a lot more improvements to be done to it. I never would have thought that i would enjoy driving around in a cavalier but it is a very smooth ride.

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

Looks great, sounds great, all the upgrades, and low miles.

Cons

The cops keep an eye on you cause its so easy to spot.

Its Great. — I love this car! It accelerates great because of the header, throttle body spacer, cold air intake, and the full exhaust system. The cavaliers is an LS Sport, so it has an upgraded suspension. All the aftermarket things on it were put on correctly, not the 'cheap' way. The appearance of the car is great. The body is in great condition, it has a full body kit, headlight covers, and the taillights are painted black. And also the black powder coated Diablo rims make it look great. The gas mileage is pretty good, not as good as a stock cavalier because of all the engine upgrades, but thats ok :). The car is in great mechanical condition because it only has 34,000 miles on it, so it will last a long time. The car is really fun to drive around in because it sounds great, it looks good, and you get looked at A LOT!

My Chevy Was Great. — I had chrome wheels 17 inch nice and shiny. Decent amount of horsepower after you add a couple cheap modifications. Didn't cost much to own. 5 speed manual is always fun and front wheel drive is very exceptional for winter unless you want to make it exciting! i sold it

Fun For A Starter Car. — It never goes wrong and keeps on going. Faster then most in its category. Fits 3 people and 3 snowboards inside without using the trunk. Great at driving in snow and doesn't cost a lot on gas. Worth the money i paid.

Fun — its a decent junky car. surprisingly good take off and speed, for a little 4 cyl. but only reason it's good is because it's manual. id recommend this car for a first car. but thats it. it's not a very nice car, just fun.
