    Nothing Special But It Does What You Need It To Do — So far i've had this car for 7 months and i've put bout 35 000 km on it, with only minor problems. I had to replace part of the gas line due to rust, and the alternator, but other than that there has been no problems and i have put this car throught alot. It's a small 5 spd, 2 door car that gets you from point A to point B. I would have prefered a 4 door just for ease of people getting in and out, but other than that i love 2 door. The car is great on gas and handles pretty well for a 11 year old Cavalier. For a first car i have no complaints.

    Pros: 5 spd, fun to drive, reliabe, good on gas

    Cons: 2 Dr, no power anything

    Great First Car — Has always started up for me, lowest temp was -40! Takin it to prom once. Always try to keep it clean by vaccum or wax. In the summer, it is cleaned about once a week, depending on bird crappings.

    Pros: Gas Saver. Take off is speedy. Low Maintance. Remote Start. Loud Exhaust

    Cons: Not the biggest HP.  No remote lock/ power windows.

    My Chevy Cavalier — I bought my chevy from a guy who didn't want it anymore. I fell in love with the way it looked so I bought it. I have some probelms with it like the power will go out in it once in awhile, sometimes it doesn't drive as well as it should, and doesn't drive well in the snow. But with those negatives there are positves with my car. It's a '97 and the inside looks new, very well taken care of. I love this car, it does have some problems but it's a great car and very fun to drive...

    Owner for 0 years, 8 months

    Miles Driven per Year:40,000

    Cons: Back wheel wells are rusted almost out (because of the snow) , leaks on passenger side door where the top comes down.
