Pros

ITS A CHEVROLET!!!!!

Cons

NO POWER!!!!

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...

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...

Quick Quick Quick

Cons

Lights were very dim, hard to see at night

Cavalier — Where do I begin, Performance A+, especially during acceleration (5 speed that is)...its quicker then any of the Civic SI's off the line. Top speed is ok, not the best as it tops out at 107mph, but a extremely fun car to drive. Gas is another great factor about this car, its down fall which is not that big of a deal to me is the interior. It could use a more sport trim.

My First Car, Spent $1000 Customizing It. Love It — the fact that i can customize ALOT in this car. I have the SS model, love doing powerslides in it, cheap to fix up, and can take a thrashing. sounds absolutely brilliant especially with dual exhaust mufflers that i've put on.

good gas mileage

Cons

multiple gauge clusters had to be replaced,

35

My Car — good acceleration for a 4 cylinder, brakes and handle fine, has a few maintenance problems but im not sure if they are from when i wrecked the car or if are due to the car having 100k miles, has a rod knock, possibly a cracked re-strut,and revs to high due to a dumbass ex of mine putting the wrong trans fluid in it, the gas gauge went bad and had to be replaced, now the rpm gauge is going bad, and some of the lights behind the gauges have gone out but i do love owning and driving this car

Pros

gas mileage, size

Cons

Recalls - speedometer

35

Its A Good Car — I like the car overall, it gets great gas mileage and the size it just right for me and my friends its got plenty of trunk space and I love the stock stereo in the car it hits pretty good for being only factory. The only bad thing is my car is 7 years old and the speedometer gauge quit working which had to be replaced aside from that its a great car!

Pros

Good beginner car, Easy to work on

Cons

Nothing really it all depends on how you drive, and what you do to it

55

My 2004 Cavalier — The 2004 Cavalier is a really good beginner car, it is great on gas and is cheap to keep. The build quality is wonderful it has a pretty solid frame and you can rely on it. Appearance of the Cavalier is just like a normal car, but it is a smaller. Cost of this vehicle ranges from $500 - 10,000 Depnding on the year and miles and condition of the vehicle. The car is fun to drive and I can say it is very reliable for a beginner car, and its cheap to keep, and get work done to it. Then End

Pros

Quick, comfortable, peppy, gas mileage and nice sound system

Cons

It's a front wheel drive

It's A Pretty Sweet Economical Car That's Sporty And A Little Different From The Rest — It's a quick little car, that gets good gas mileage. The engine/trans combo are bulletproof and it's an all around fun car to drive. It's not a race car or anything but for an economy car it's a great deal.
