Very Reliable

get me to point A to point B, ( knock one Wood ) I never had any serious, costly issues with it, just the minor wear and tear, that was an easy repair and cheap


its fun

My cavalier is a good car. It is great on gas. Its kind of small for me I'm 6'1" my cavalier is good for what I use it for, going a to b.


Best most reliable first car ever

This car is great on gas it's my first car and it's reliable no expenses needed simple and very fun to drive. Saved me about 300 a month in gas


Most Reliable Car I've Owned

It might not be the fanciest car on the market, but the engine never quits and it gets great gas mileage. It is cheap to fix. I've owned three in my life and have a 48 miles commute one way, I never fear that my car won't start or get me to work. The inside is functional and has everything you need.


Great car

It's very fun and easy to maintain. I love this car! Hate that I have to sell. But I'm sure someone will enjoy it as much as I did.


Best Deal Ever

I just got it today and it rides pretty good! It is one of the best deals I've ever gotten on a car.



This car handles great. Rides smooth. Love the interior, NO tears OR cigarette burns. Exterior is my favorite color. Really glad I bought it plus it came with 4mo/4000 miles warranty, which. I need to check in to. OVERALLL I AM IN LOVE WITH THIS CAVALIAR!!!!


Great Car

I bought on of these brand new. It suits me fine. I still get 33 mile as gallon after 12 years. The car doesn't have the best ride...but the only work I have had done is a new gas pump put in a 7 years into ownership. I keep up on all the routine checks and it runs as well as it did they day I bought it. The gas mileage is the best part of ownership.


Reliable Little Chevy

I bought this car used with around 34k on it back in 2004. It now has over 210,000 miles (original engine/trans)and it's still a daily driver. It has only left me hanging once when the fuel pump went out around a hundred thousand miles ago. It has been through several rocky mountain winters and several southwest desert summers and is still running well. I have kept up on the maintenance fairly well. I'm a nerd and check mpg at the pump every time. In mixed driving lately it has been getting 29-30 mpg. City driving is typically 25-27 mpg and usually 32-34 mpg on the highway. 35 mpg hwy isn't too difficult to achieve even in the Rockies (when I try not to go much over 80 mph). I plan on keeping it for while yet. This car has worked hard, and still gets the job done. Power is more than sufficient for confident passing and climbing hills. Interior space isn't bad at all for a compact car.


Help your mechanic retire early

Your mechanic will love this car. He'll make plenty of money off of it. I had non-stop repairs on this piece of junk. Every repair was vastly expensive too since they weld all the small parts together so you have to replace entire systems instead of small repairs. It cost me four hundred dollars to fix the windshield wipers because of a small plastic bushing! I haven't even gotten it paid of yet and it's being towed to the scrap yard because the repairs it needs are more than the car's value. I wish I had never bought this car!!!
