Had this car for 7 years and drove it many many miles. Never once had a problem with it. Bought the car with 118,000 miles on it and drove it to well over 200,000 miles. Thankful for this car and how reliable it was. Defiantly recommend this vehicle especially for young teens whom need a small caras their first vehicle. Or for people who want a good little gas saver to drive to work in! This car had excellent gas mileage!!

Mediocre

I bought this car second hand with about 50,000 miles on it. Was good to change the oil on time and everything. It now has 120,000 miles on it and the transmissions seems to be going out (flips between gears back and forth around 65 and revs funny). The ac has also gone out. I think the lack of cruise control when driving on the interstate is probably what killed the transmission. I would recommend it for driving around in town but long distance trips... not so much. That being said the car has been in a few small wrecks. I also have a toyota camry with twice the miles and I would trust it before the cavalier.

We just purchased this car not to long ago so it is hard to give a review, but from first impressions it seems like it's a well built car. It is a one owner with 75k on it and seems like it was well cared for as one would expect after someone spend money on a new car. The ride is quite and solid with nice handling characteristics. I must say the rear speakers blew out and I don't know why as this is the wifes car and she does not crank the stereo at all. The deal was to get the rear speakers out (2door model) they are sandwiched between the metal structure of the car and the finished interior piece in the back window. I had to take out the seat (bottom and back) and then the two large plastic interior panels. All in all it took me like 2 hours!! I could have just cut the interior panel but that's just not how I roll lol

I needed a car to run my children around town and did not want a van. With all the driving back and forth, wanted to have fun so i purchased this car. the back seat holds 3 people that folds down and is able to fit ski poles, skis etc. Trunk holds 15 bags of groceries. There is no other convertible on the road that has this much room for a small car. The sound system is better that our van that my husband drives by co. that begins with a T. This car is good for bringing large items home. Yahama electric piano, couch, and loads of srubs, Christmas trees (top down with heat running) that I was able to cart places... not to mention 20 ft. pieces of lumber from home depot with a red flag on the back. I wish that Chevrolet would start making these cars again. I would buy another one. It now has 95K miles.

Bought my 2000 Z24 convertible with 37,000 miles on it cheap. Drove it hard for 8 years including towing a boat, not recomended according to the owners manual. Used synthetic 5w30 oil and changed every 12,000 miles. Developed a rod knock suddenly at 2,500 rpm @ 242,000 miles. Drove it home, could not feel any difference in the engine smoothness. Should have been nicer to it.Except for the fuel pump, spent $20.00 on a window motor and $90.00 each on front hubs. 600,001 between my last 3 cavs.

Best automatic car i have owned

by from Fort Wayne, In on July 5, 2009

I have had my Chevy for a little over a year now and all i have had to do is regular maintenance and nothing major has went wrong. As long as you take care of this car it will take care of you.

heavy duty

by from Windber, PA on September 17, 2008

I took this car off roading and it managed to survive that. I did have all the recalled problems, but I would recommend a 4 door one for safety reasons
