    2005 Chevrolet Cavalier - Base Coupe

    Pros: Reliability

    Cons: Replacing factory stereo is pretty involved

    Advice: Buy it. It has the same powertrain as the cobalt for much less.

    The suspension and handling was far better than that of any Honda that was 50% more and it had way more acceleration. I test drove a Honda Civic because car & driver gives them good reviews for some reason. The handling was terrible, the car was loud and had no acceleration. I also test drove a Hyundai Tiburon. That was slow and very loud. I recall 3700 RPM doing only 70 MPH in the 5 speed. The Toyota Matrix was loud, slow, expensive and it too had no acceleration.

    DID NOT TEST DRIVE MY VEHICLE BUT THE 5 SPEED IS ALOT BETTER THEN THE AUTOMATIC

    2005 Chevrolet Cavalier - Base Sedan

    Pros: location of everything

    Cons: rough on bumps

    Advice: you get what you pay for

    Car handles well in normal driving conditions. Good take off when you put your foot to the floor, but lacks signifigant power if you have the AC on.
