Good Car — Three different generations in my family have owned cavaliers and all have done well. Each lasting over 225,000 miles. They are realiable cars. The main problems is on all the cavaliers has been the paint job has faded or peeled quickly.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: It is a great around town car.  Has over 239,000 miles on it now and still in love with this car.  Very comfortable size for driving.  Gets me from point A to b and back with no hassles.   Keeping basic maintained on this car and it still keeps going for me

Cons: The paint did not last so had to get it reprinted.   No intermittent wipers, no rear window defroster.

Cavalier — I had a Mercedes cavalier built better than all other cars. This cavalier only the fuel pump went in my 7 years of owning it which had over 300 , 000 miles on it. still never used any oil. I don t care about fun cars or pretty cars I like tough cars and cavaliers are some of the toughest cars on the road.

Pros: tough

Cons: slow

1985 Chevrolet Cavalier 4-door Sedan — Built well, but performance sucked. Slow to accelerate, handling and ride both sucked. Solid car. Gas mileage was great. Appearance was below average. Not horrible for a first car.....you gotta start somewhere. Didn't need too much maintenance and got me from point A to point B. Chevy is where it's at.

Pros: Quality of Craftsmanship

Cons: Looks, Acceleration
