    Tank — Old reliable tank, would always get you from point a to point b. had for over 500,000 miles before i got rid of it. Only reason i did that was becouse the radiator gave and a new radiator was worth more than the car. Recommend for a learner car but thats it.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: reliable

    Cons: pos

    Gm Should Make Them Again — I love this car, it had over 340,000 miles on it when I got rid of it, and it is still on the road today going up to speeds of 130 MPH, amazing gas mileage, perfect commuting car, handles in the winter snow like a dream. accelerates just as fast as a 1998 Monte Carlo!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: a freaking mazing

    Cons: hard to find tires, p175 80 r13

    Too Bad The Old V6 Z24 Is Gone — Loved it. Suprizingly quick and agile. My friend owned it before me and made a few needed repairs. God have mercy on his soul and anyone else who find themselves under this hood. Its not exactly the friendliest places for a mechanic. The electronics were shotty, you could get by with that except for the speedo was and electronic dash. Despite all that, my friend and I still look back on the Cavalier fondly. I am sad to see her go....

    Pros: Fun

    Cons: dont drop tools in the hood they wont make it to the floor

    Awsome Car — I bought my car with original 56k miles. I have added z24 rims off of a 88 z24 cavalier. I have put Dayton SR tires also I have had a new muffler so I sounds like it has a v8 in it. I have added vent shades and had the windows tinted. It almost handles like my porshe Carrera. I am pushing about 140 hp with the original engine. It just turned 75k miles and is still running fine.

    Owner for 2 years, 3 months

    Miles Driven per Year:10,000

    Pros: handling, gas mileage, and power

    Cons: It is lite in the back end

    Its A Good First Car Or Cheap Car, But Not My First Choice By Far. — It was my first car, and I had a station wagon model. She started, no matter what. She was really light in the back end, however. As I live in northern Wisconsin, that was a problem once the snow started flying. The fact that both the previous owner and I drove it hard and drove it for several years speaks to its reliability.

    Pros: Reliable, cheap, gas efficient.

    Cons: Ugly, narrow, drove like a wagon.

    Fun Little Car — Considering I had over 200k miles on my Z24, I can't complain too much. Fun little car with decent pep as long as you get the Z24 model.

    Pros: V6 was peppy, decent gas mileage.

    Cons: Not the best looking of cars, but good looking enough.
