The Car Has Presence, But That's It. — This car make look good and be economical, but there's absolutely nothing special about it. The car's interior was poor and nothing had a really well made solid feel about it. Steering was light, it was easy to drive, the little 2 liter ecotec engine moves it well but the car feels much bigger than it really is. Also it is very low to the ground and the driving position is low in the car, thus everything is taller than you. Other than that I really had no impressions about it, its a cheap car to get you from a to b.

I Love 3rd Gen J-bodies — Well I haven't driven a stock LS sport, but i do like the styling of the factory body kit, its tastefully done. The suspension consists of Koni yellow adjustable struts, Road magnet springs, poly bushings all around, front stb.....it handles very well for a daily driver and the ride is tolerable. The motor pulls hard and gets good milage to boot.

A Good Cheep Car That Will Last A Long Time That You Can Race Stock — i bought this brand new and have had no mechanical problems whatsoever (knock on wood) did a little unnecessary body work like painted it and fixed a fender bender.

My Chevy Cavalier — This car isn't too bad. It gets me where I need to go and it didn't really cost me too much to safety. Gas mileage is pretty decent, I just got over 500 kms on $50 worth of gas so I can't complain.
