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.

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

Good beginner car, Easy to work on

Cons

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

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

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.

2004 Evil-tec — The acceleration is better after the performance mods, the car definitely hugs the road better after having been lowered, and the braking is alright. My driver seat has a large tear on the side, the fabric on the seat seems cheap. Sometimes when turning there is a funny noise that comes out, but nothing wrong with the car upon inspection. When washed, it looks like a beaut, when dirty ... well not so much. I generally get 33 - 35 mpg, but it gets costly with things breaking. The wheel bearing has been toasted twice now because of terrible wisconsin winters. I like driving it, turn up the tunes and begin to weave in and out of traffic.

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.

My Chevy — ITS RED!!!!! have'nt had any problems with my car, handles well, and has pretty good mileage, and is already paid off, was a fairly cheap car, insurance isn't too bad. I have fun driving my car. My car thinks its a racecar lol. It Has a good sound system. The breaks are good, and other then gas, and oil changes, it doesn't cost a lot to maintain.
