Looks Good, Extremely Well Built! — Probably the most reliable car I ever drove. In ten years and 160,000 km I never had it in the shop once, and I drive my vehicles hard. I did regular oil changes with synthetic and replaced the brakes myself. It was a little gutless on the highway when passing if you had three or more people in the car, but it was amazing on gas! I've since sold it to my parents who tow it behind their motorhome and they love it too!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fuel economy

Cons: None

Pros: Not a whole lot.

Cons: Its american.

If I Knew Better Back Then, I Would've Kept The Car - Siezed Motor And All, And Replaced The Motor. — Hey guys. So, the Cavalier was a good car to me. The acceleration was more than I thought there would be, the brakes were sufficient. It was a very fun car to drive, but maybe that's because there was times when I would cram 9 or more people in there. Lol. Although it was a small car, the leg room in the back wasn't too bad. I only had it for roughly three months but that was only because there was a oil leak and it ran out of oil and seized the motor. Otherwise, I believe I would've had that car for years to come.Gas mileage was very nice considering the miles it had on it, and the repairs were minimal at most. Chevy's are meant to last and this one was no exception: with over 135,000 miles on it and it was still chuggin along, there would be no doubt that if you got the chance to get one, DO IT!! Very awesome economy car!!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Good acceleration, great gas mileage, very fun car.

Cons: I can't think of any reasons not to own this car, unless you have expendable funds, of course.

Green Car — It is good at getting to hockey games real quick and back without using a whole lot of fuel. It doesn't have a lot of horsepower. So if you like to drive muscle cars you probably wouldn't like this. It is a good Car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great gas mileage and it is small

Cons: Not a lot of horsepower

Blinker Fluid And Muffler Bearings — It may only be a four cylinder car , but overall best car i have ever owned. Even when its stock with no mods it performs and drives like a rally drift car. This car is very fun to drive on and off road.
