Perfect Car For Saving Gas! — This car has been driven by my 19 year old son since his junior year of high school. It has been the perfect car for him! The two door coupe may not be optimal for a large family due to difficulty getting in and out of the backseat.

Great Transportation Car That Is Comfortable To Drive. — its a great little car that gets me back and forth to school with no problem. takes the abuse of the gravel road very well and hasn't failed me yet. has enough power to get up and go but still remain fuel efficient.

Overall A Very Nice Car That Doesn't Cost Much For The Upkeep — the car handles really well in any type of weather it is front wheel drive so it does good in the snow. haven't really had any problems with the brakes or anything. i have had to put one set of brakes on it and new tires all the way around besides that nothing has been done except the routine oil change. there are a couple of scratches on the outside of the car and one dent on the passenger side behind the door, the interior is clean. the greatest thing about the car is i get about 36 mpg highway which is awesome. also the car is not too small and i love driving it.

Something — This cavalier is ok for my budget but it is definitely not a car that i would want to keep thats for sure. It actually has a halfway decent stock radio in it. It sounds better than most new cars. This is the best thing about cause I didnt have to spend any more money on it to make it sound better.

You Get What You Pay For — The car has great looks for the prize range and performance is great as well. The car was good on gas. The only trouble is there were some things that felt cheap. The seat were not that comfortable and I would have loved to have a few more inches of leg room. Overall it was functional and fun to drive.

2005 Chevy Cavalier — My Cavalier was fast, light, and good looking with a rear spoiler, and nice polished silver color. It keped me safe while in a major car accident, and it was fun to drive, because it picked up speed pretty quick.

Creap but fun stick shift

Cons

the clutch will burn out ever 50k miles b/c chevy ran the line near a vibrating component :(

55

It's Paid Off, I'll Run Her To The Ground. — It's stick, so it rocks more than most automatics. Also, I can get 40 mi/gal on highway only, or 30 mi/gal city.... and still have a little fun shifting around. Chevy poorly engineered the clutch line, though, so it will blow the cylinders :( It is an easy car to maintain, engine, interior, and exterior.
