I Love How It Runs And Drives, But I Wish The Head Gasket Wasnt Out — i like how fast it is. i like the b&m slap shifter on it. i like how light weight it is, and how easy it is to slide. i will probably drive it in the fair with a bad head gasket, and replace the head and gasket after it is over.

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

Pros: very powerful for a four cyl.

Cons: the head gasket went out

2003 Chevy Cavalier — Great daily driver. I get almost 36 MPG Highway in the summer and consistently around 30 on average. The engine is really strong, but the interior quality is really poor. Surprisingly powerful and handles really. Great car for teenager or if you want an inexpensive second car as a toy. The physical styling is really good, especially with the car lowered.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Surprising power and handling for a front wheel drive car. The engine is incredibly strong as well.

Cons: The interior build quality is terrible. A lot of cheap plastic.

Worst Car Ever Driven — I only hope for you to never have to drive one at all, this seriously does not worth anything if you have to buy a car that cost nothing for the millage go for a hyunday accent it's also a bad car but at least there some quality

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: nothing

Cons: everything, you don't really expect it to be a good car or anything but it's not even cheap on gas the ride quality is worthless

Worth The Money For The Economy Transportation That It Is. — I would buy another one if I needed basic transportation, Excellent first car for a teenager!!! Basic maint is all I have done and the care still runs strong with 150k plus on it. The paint is a major issue and seems to be a problem with alot of the caviliers form that time period.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Price and reliability, very low maint cost and fuel economy is awesome

Cons: Small and not alot of leg room for back seat passangers, Paint issue

Great Shape And Looks Very Sporty. — I love the look of the car inside and out. Wonderful fuel mileage and rides good on long trips Has a big trunk for a small car. The battery is only two years old..This car has new brakes and rotors. The only thing I didn't like was roll down windows non-power.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Comes with extra wheels and tires. New winter snow tires on it now.

Cons: Roll down non-power windows.

I'm Gonna Hate To See This Car Go! — not too shabby! acceleration is decent for a 4 cylinder. and upon quick acceleration the transmission is smooth (and i have 195,000 miles on the original motor and transmission!) the only repairs i've needed was a timing chain tensioner and an alternator. the appearance is cute. good for a young girl (such as myself). i love the black interior! the cost of ownership is quite low! i get about a combined 26 mpg's (340-ish per tank), not exactly hybrid status, but certainly not bad. this car is somewhat fun to drive. not the worst, but like i said it's just a four cylinder..

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: i love the gas mileage, black interior, and quiet ride that this car provides!

Cons: i wish it were quicker, but hey, it's a 4-cylinder.
