Overall:

It Is Just A Car That Gets Me From Point A To B — It runs about a 15sec 1/4 mile. It brakes good. Can be easily upgraded and modded to become a performance car cheaply. They are fairly good looking cars. They look better than any of the other models. It is a great car for gas mileage and reliability

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Mpg

Cons: Its a cavalier

Cavalier — The Acceleration is not very good and it tends to chatter at higher speeds, but it has good gas mile age (about 24 -25 mpg). It looks pretty good, and the shape actually deflects bugs. the car hasn't need much maintenance and has been a good car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Good mpg

Cons: Acceleration

Grandma's Cavalier — My grandmother's car. I sometimes have use of it when I visit PEI. It's not fancy, but it's a surprising lot of fun to drive. Steering is responsive and precise, acceleration is visceral and immediate. The transmission is a rather dated 3-speed and the brakes need constant repairs, but I still quite like this car.

Pros: Great handling

Cons: Poor brakes, 3-speed automatic means continuous high revving at highway speeds

A Dependable Car To Take From Ponit A To Point B And Very Efficient At It — a dependable/faithful car to take you from point a to point b.styling is bland but with some aftermarket parts can become a loooker.solid brakess. engines is not fast on acceleration but has enough torque to leave other 4 cyl in the dust when climbing a hill.

Pros: dependable car,cheap maintenance,great brakes and easy on the gas

Cons: interior is cheaply made, no rear window defroster,back seat a little bit cramped
