It Has It's Ups And Its Downs. — Performance- Acceleration is unbelievably quick for an inline four cylinder. Braking is excellent and this car takes turns like it's riding on rails. Build Quality- The Chevrolet Cavalier has had numerous problems. Expect to get what you pay for. It has needed several repairs, most of them being strange electrical problems. Sunroof stopped working, driver window refuses to work during rain/fog. Very strange problems that can't seem to be fixed. Poor design on the hubcaps has the wheels constantly squeaking, not a problem but very annoying. Windshield wipers stopped working, had them repaired but don't work on first intermittent setting for some reason. Cost of ownership- Maintenance has been a pain. The only good thing about the car is that it's very sporty, and the gas mileage is amazing. I'm averaging around 27 mpg. Fun Factor- This car is a lot of fun to drive. Take one for a test drive, you won't be disappointed.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fun, Sporty, Quick, Sexy.

Cons: Quality Issues

2003 Chevrolet Cavalier — Good gas mileage, nice travel car. Apperance isn't all to love, cheap to own. Ecotec motor doesn't have a good reputation and now i see why. It's hard to figure out what's wrong when something doesn't run right. It's an OK car, not chevy's best though.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Good gas mileage, cheap to maintain.

Cons: Not easy to diagnois problems, ugly.

This Is A Great First Car (or 2nd, 3rd) — not too big (fits where little things can), not too small (good leg room for the 6'7" friends), nice for a Sunday drive, great on gas for getting somewhere fast, contoured seating but affordable, easy maintenance, not too flashy to make you feel reckless, but definitely not boxy or cheap to make you feel like a missionary - just perfect in size, shape and design... it's a cavalier, man, not a ferrari - it's perfect for the cavalier-sized pocket to afford and adore...

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: good on gas

Cons: weak tires, could go for an upgrade on tires

Not A Bad Buy...i Would Probably Buy This Car Again If I Needed Another Family Vehicle. — Gets me from point A to point B in average time. Not too bad on gas mileage, but I bought it used so it has a few problems. I keep hitting curbs so it rides kinda bumpy, but that's user error!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: It's a fairly decent car, comes with XM radio.

Cons: It's not the prettiest of cars...
