The Car Is An Ok Car — overall I would say that if you want a dependable car a chevy cavalier is one to have I had the car for 2 years, it had 223,000 + miles on it when I bought it, I did not put a drop of money into it until I replaced the motor in it at 241,069 miles on it.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: the car gets good gas mileage, it has a new remanufactured motor by spartan in it with 1,100 miles on it and it is very dependable.

Cons: The cooling fan quit working when I replaced the motor go figure that one.

Ehh... — Performance wise the damn thing is fast. quality? yeah i would buy another. appearance? i love the style. cost? eh Ive done timing/transmission/injectors that went out.... gets good gas mileage. very fun to drive so yeah i would get another.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Its my gas saver, i run it on the track and i havnt met a honda ricer i cant take yet, including those with the b18 swap..  also pretty simple to fix

Cons: Transmissions go out on them... easily
