.......can Take It Anywhere.....has Gotten Me Outta Sketchy Situations And I Just Love It!!!! — Love this thing. It's basically my little tank. Looks a little sporty too! Take it anywhere, and easy on fuel, fun and easy to drive and can perform quick and abrasive maneuvers with ease. Awesome pick up, wicked bottom end power!!!!!!!

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

It's A Nice Little Ride — 35 mpg!. only thing I've ever repaired was a sensor that caused the traction control light to stay on for 35$. it has over 80,000 miles on it. Penty of get up and go. Handles great. I've read where some say the interior styling is outdated, but things become outdated so fast now a days it's impossible to keep up. If you buy a brand new car just wait a year or two. The top of the dash is prone to cracking, I went to a reck yard to see if I could get a replacement piece for it and out of the Dozen or so that were there, they were all cracked.

Good Car For College/work Commuters. — I'm very happy with my car although it is not top notch I must say it feels good to write a check for a brand new car, and it served the purpose I bought it for very well. I used this car for commuting back and forth to college, and I must say the gas mileage was a nice asset. Performance: Its not a race car, noone ever said it was. Simply put it serves its purpose well. Build Quality: Although it has a bargain price tag the build quality is fairly average with other vehicles. Appearance: Unlike the older model cavi's the 04 sported a more modern streamlined look which fits in better with other vehicles on the road today. All in all it isn't a bad look, doesn't exactly stand out in the crowd, but again caviliers aren't bought for their stunning looks and lavish options. Cost of Ownership: This is where the cavi takes the cake. Tires are cheap gas is cheap, and thus far no other maintenance costs have seemed to pop up. Fun Factor: Never met a car I couldn't have fun in so I must say yes to this one. If you love driving you can make any car fun in my opinion.

Great Car For The Price — Great car for the price but its lacking in quality and the automatic tranny just cant handle any serious shifting, had to replace the suspension and wheel bearings multiple times but its a fun little car to drive if your looking for a cheap runabout

Very Great Efficant Car — it only has a 4 cyl but it gets very good gas millage. it is a stick shift which is fun. its red in color. i have a cold air intake on it and a cherry bomb muffler which makes it louder which is cool. but it is base as hell doesnt even have cruise control.

Good Car For A Teenager — I like that it is an automatic and that the brakes on my car work, I dislike that it has a 4 cylinder engine so the performance of the car is minimal and the car does not get very good miles. :/

Pros

Good first car...

Cons

Small and very, very light...  if you are sitting still and a car passes you at 60 the car will almost tip over...

45

I Love It... — Good first car, I like it its a four cyl so it doesn't have alot of power... it has a few problems and is missing a few minor pieces and some things were broken, like the air vents, some of the plastic nuts that hold the hubcaps on... mine doesnt have auto windows or door locks... but overall a great car...

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