Despite several warnings from family about the quality of American cars and the fact that I should look into Japaniese, I fell in love with the looks of my 2003 Cavalier LS and had to get it when I saw it sitting in that auction. Having owned the car for almost 3 years I can easily say that it has been the perfect decision that I could've made.
I'll make the review simple :
1) Outside appearance : the car is beautiful , with the avaliable chrome wheels, fog lights and sun roof the car looks great and maneges to keep it looks despite being about 10 years old.
2) Interior: it is not BMW , the plastic doesn't really fit everywhere, some shaky parts causing minimum noise and the seats require a nice seat cover to make them look good. Otherwise the steering wheel and transmission handle are well made and feel good to the hand.
3) Performance : HOLY MOTHER OF TORQUE , this car has a crazy push from 0-60 , great low rpm torque and perfect handling for the 140hp you get. Will outrun any honda civic or scion tc out there and do it while giving you some amazing 25mpg city and up to 32(best I got)mpg on the highway.
4) Reliability: You won't need any major repairs besides parts that you would need to replace just like any other car ( fuel pump every 60kmiles, bearings every 50-70k miles) nothing out of the ordinary besides the windows regulators, which are a pain !. Never left me hanging in the street. Keep the oil changes on schedule and you'll be fine.
Overall incredible car, will be sad to let it go one day.
