Awesome Gas Mileage — This car is great on gas, and also is very reliable. There is nothing that i have to say about it that is negative. It handles very nice on snow and ice as well as wet roads! Perfect family, and commuter car.

Not A Car That I Would Want To Sit In My Driveway For More Than A Few Years. Ready To Get Rid Of It — I dislike the handling, power, looks, and overall performance. It gets my family and I to point A to point B so in that aspect, I cannot complain. When you try to rev the engine it seems as though the engine is straining without any results. Poor performance and even poorer craftsmanship. Do not buy this car.

Total Beauty — I loved this car, I bought it in early 2005 and it was everything its supposed to. it drove easily and quietly, comfortable front and back seats, ac Works great, it picks up speed quite fast. I raced a standard nissan and lost it in my rear view. it has the confort of a famiily car but the style of a sports car. loved the way the dash and center consol just wrap perfectly, made for driver confort. it was very easy to clean as stains would come off easy. nothing wrong with it when i owned it. loved it and still wish to own another 2004 cavalier.

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

Pros

Dependable, stylish enough on its own

Cons

Front seats are bad for the back, and I always lose the "want me to drive" question, because passengers think that the passenger seat is too low and uncomfortable.

Sturdy, Dependable, Stylish-looking Car — It's only started shedding parts recently (2012) since 2004. Until now, no problems. Have recently replace my starter, my windshield wiper linkage, and am now struggling with my shifter linkage. I've driven her to Lubbock and back (Austin) several times, and taken a few other road trips.

it took the nastiest beating and survived all except 1

Cons

the breaks could be upgraded

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.

its a junky car, yet fun

Cons

its built out of plastic lol

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.
