Overall:

I ended up not getting it because of too many problems with it. And I was not made aware of those problems until I checked it out and so I did not get it. Had to get another car for waaaay more than I had planned for and on top of that, that car had a major issue with it. Not happy.

Overall:

Very Good First Car. — Over all the cavalier has been a good car. Vehicle has very good pick up and plenty of power. Very tight responsive steering and smooth and stable on the highway. The firm suspension make for a rougher ride in the city and side roads.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Reliable, Starts every day even in the coldest weather. Great traction in the wet and snow weather, Must be the great Kelly Tires I have on there

Cons: Rust on these cars are inevitable around the rear wheel wells.

Great Fuel Mileage Vehicle With Sporty Appearance. — This vehicle gets great gas mileage and also looks very sporty with the rims and the sunroof and spoiler. Maintenance is very cheap if done on time. Car is great for a student or someone needing to commute back and forth. Never really had any problems with this vehicle.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fuel mileage, sporty appearance, comfortable, inexpensive.

Cons: Back seat space, cargo room.

Its A Decent Car To Have — Wish it had the ability to go 0-60 quicker. Heater now sounds like a turbine engine. Drivers side window doesn't make a complete seal. She does have dents and dins. But overall a reliable car. Winter time sucks, she gets frost in the inside the windows and rear defrost doesn't work the best.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Hearing the rev of my engine

Cons: With air on the throttle goes down then subsides, constantly making the car feel like its moving

Good Styling. Cheap Parts. Easy To Upgrade. — I love the overall looks and the paint color. I love the 2.4L Twin Cam engine, it's has great acceleration. The engine, body, and brakes are very easy to upgrade. The only dislike is the dash. It becomes very brittle and will crack. Replacing it with a use dash is a major waste of time. Buy an aftermarket dash cap and the cracks are no longer exposed.

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

Pros: Very low maintenance vehicle. Quick for it's class. Very good gas mileage  

Cons: Most Cavalier 1995-05 are so common for dash cap cracks. The 1997 models seem to have the least dash cracks. Factory clear coat is not the best.

Cheap Hardly Effiect Virtulally Runs On Luck Every Time Chevrolet At It's Worst! — Performance- NONE!

What can o say other than ever other week i was dumping 50 to 100 dollars into it just to keep it on the road.

When You Step On Her She Will Go!!!!! — well bought this car for $500 it needed some work done to it....k-frame, brake line, control arm bushings, and wheel bearings...after got all that done she is a pretty good driving car needed some minor work after that..it is still a base model for now trying to get the money to put some after market stuff onto it..gas mileage is good when on highway not the best in the city but better than others....car is fun to drive happy to be back into a standard when push on the gas to go it will actual go unlike some of our previous cars when had to be careful when pulling out in front of cars...

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: I like that it is a family car and that i am not cramped when driving and that it is STANDARD!!!

Cons: hate the drivers seat belt needs to be fixed and the drivers seat also

Well Over All Its A Good Car One Of The Better Cars I Have Had (and I Have Had A Few) Aside From Tyh — well we payed 500 for our cavalier but it needed a bit of work for example we had to change the sub frame, control arm bushings in the front,break line in back,2 wheel bearings and that was just to get it on the road but still needs a bit of work like shocks and strut mounts we also have replaced one strut mount,another bearing and both wheel cyls.As far as performance goes when u press on the gas it dont let u down.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: it dont let me down

Cons: it is stock(for now)

Bottom Line. I Would Proably Not Buy Another One, Although This One Has Been Good To Me Do Far. — Performance: Good In All Areas. Build Quality: There are no Grease Fittings On This Car. It is supposed to be "Lubed For Life". It Is Not. Appearance: Good Looking Car Inside/Out. Window Buttons Cockpit Style, I Find A Drawback. If A Passenger Wants A Window Open, The Driver Has To Do It. Cost: Cheap On Gas/Good Mileage. Brakes Are A Bit Expensive. Integrated Washer Motor In Reservoir, Very Expensive To Replace, Even Used. Fun To Drive: Very Fun Car To Drive. Good Acceleration, Good Handling With Front And Rear Anti Sway Bars.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Economical, Fun to Drive, Sporty Look.

Cons: Rust, Paint Peel.
