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.

Pros

it saved gas

Cons

its really small and the build quality sucks

25

Just Pull The Ecotec Engine And Pair It With A 4t65e Hydramatic Trans...it Will Be Better Off.. — performance.. the car sucks but I live the performance of it.. i mean for a 4-banger, it flew but it also saved gas like no ones business.. I miss it because of how economical it is but i hate how the interior stayed the same from the 3rd gen(1995-2002)models

Farthest thing from luxery

Good — I like that i can do stupid stuff in it without feeling guilty haha. But really, its a pretty cheap, reliable car and a good car to start with. Very fun to drive. However, the interior is very sub par.

First New Car — Handles great in nice weather w/ the sport suspension. Bright yellow, but wish I had gotten the Cavalier LS Sport. 30-35 miles/gallon is great with the 110 mile commute. Living in North NJ, car is horrible in snow. Have 118K miles on it now.

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
