Perfect Car For Saving Gas! — This car has been driven by my 19 year old son since his junior year of high school. It has been the perfect car for him! The two door coupe may not be optimal for a large family due to difficulty getting in and out of the backseat.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Good gas saver!  

Cons: Two doors make it difficult for large family.

Great Transportation Car That Is Comfortable To Drive. — its a great little car that gets me back and forth to school with no problem. takes the abuse of the gravel road very well and hasn't failed me yet. has enough power to get up and go but still remain fuel efficient.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: very fuel efficient and drives very well. ac works great and speaker in the back work great.

Cons: it was somewhat misused by the previous owner and has been in the shop several times with minor issues that have surfaced

Overall A Very Nice Car That Doesn't Cost Much For The Upkeep — the car handles really well in any type of weather it is front wheel drive so it does good in the snow. haven't really had any problems with the brakes or anything. i have had to put one set of brakes on it and new tires all the way around besides that nothing has been done except the routine oil change. there are a couple of scratches on the outside of the car and one dent on the passenger side behind the door, the interior is clean. the greatest thing about the car is i get about 36 mpg highway which is awesome. also the car is not too small and i love driving it.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: mpg

Cons: just not having four-wheel drive on gravel roads

Something — This cavalier is ok for my budget but it is definitely not a car that i would want to keep thats for sure. It actually has a halfway decent stock radio in it. It sounds better than most new cars. This is the best thing about cause I didnt have to spend any more money on it to make it sound better.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Half way decent gas milage.

Cons: The paint already fading.

You Get What You Pay For — The car has great looks for the prize range and performance is great as well. The car was good on gas. The only trouble is there were some things that felt cheap. The seat were not that comfortable and I would have loved to have a few more inches of leg room. Overall it was functional and fun to drive.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: price and performace for price

Cons: cheap materials

2005 Chevy Cavalier — My Cavalier was fast, light, and good looking with a rear spoiler, and nice polished silver color. It keped me safe while in a major car accident, and it was fun to drive, because it picked up speed pretty quick.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: my car flipped and I came out with only a few minor scratches and a cat bite

Cons: it is being sold for parts because of the damage withstaind.

It's Paid Off, I'll Run Her To The Ground. — It's stick, so it rocks more than most automatics. Also, I can get 40 mi/gal on highway only, or 30 mi/gal city.... and still have a little fun shifting around. Chevy poorly engineered the clutch line, though, so it will blow the cylinders :( It is an easy car to maintain, engine, interior, and exterior.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Creap but fun stick shift

Cons: the clutch will burn out ever 50k miles b/c chevy ran the line near a vibrating component :(
