04 Cavalier — Its a decent car for the price. Its a quality car it has a nice interior which works well. The preformance is lacking then of course it's only a 4 cyclinder non-turbo. I mean it is a manual so it is a semi-fun car to drive and it doesn't cost much to mantain.

Cons

its yellow :P

2004 Cavalier — it works for me, there isn't really much else that i can say about it. It has decent pickup for a four cylinder, decent value, its a base so you get what you get. It zips around and gets good gas mileage. nothing rattles, so it has decent build quality. good car, you get what you paid for

Pros

the 2000 rms amp, and 2 12's in the back..

Cons

the fact that it can't beat a stock civic off the line. has no brass and balls

35

'04 Cav — This is a manual 5 speed with overdrive. It gets 30-36 mpg depending on how hard you are on the gas and break pedals. Easy shift car. Good feel and handling, but body rolls in tighter courners because it's a coupe. Not impressed with the back end without a spoiler, but it's a good first owner car.

Pros

Cheap on wallet

Cons

not a lot of room for big guys.

35

Cavalier 04 — It is overall a decent car it is farlly inexpensive and only cost on average $36.00 to fill at the pumps from an almost empty tank. It is however not the most roomy, when me and my dad sit in it in the front two seats we are always fighting for arm room when were shifting, but then again me and my dad are both 6'2" and both over 250 lbs. so its easy to se why its small for us. But other than that it has a lot of potential for many applications.

Doesn't have much power to it

Its A Good Around Town Car And Comfortable For Long Trips. — All in all its a good car, but my car is the lowest base model available and its frustrating to me. I thought it was a great car when I purchased it, but the longer I drive it, the more i realize how little there is to this car.
