    2003 Chevrolet Cavalier - Base Coupe

    Pros: The rear seatbelt system.

    Advice: If you are looking for a great economy car the cavalier is your your best bet!

    I purchased the 2003, two door cavalier.

    2003 Chevrolet Cavalier - Base Coupe

    Pros: I love the entire car

    Cons: I don't have power seats

    Advice: Test drive it, It's great

    I own one and it is the best car ever and the safest. My husband was in a very bad car accident and if would have been driving any other car in the same class he would have been seriously hurt. That car is the best investment I have ever made. It gets great gas milage and is such a comfortable ride. GM makes great cars!

    2003 Chevrolet Cavalier - Base Coupe

    Pros: standard air conditioned

    Cons: it feels good when driving

    Advice: look for ION 4 coupe it has better shape and more features

    the ride feels smooth and quiet, it feels good, the quality for dashboard materials and other components as bumpers is poor. Very fuel economy! The total car's trim at this year looks old. specialty in the front. The cost for this model is very accesible!

    2003 Chevrolet Cavalier - LS Sedan

    Pros: I have covered it.

    Cons: n/a

    Advice: No need to look elsewhere! Buy this great compact sedan!

    My boyfriend and I were looking for a compact sedan that was comfortable and had great traction, plus got great gas mileage and had plenty of power. And we were also looking for the one that came with the best rebate. After checking several, we chose the Cavalier LS sedan. Its 140-h.p. Ecotec 4 cylinder provides all we were looking for. We were not into a high performance compact. It has plenty of seating and cargo room. It has the optional OnStar and premium stereo with cassette and CD in addition to XM Satellite Radio. And it has the optional 4-speed AOD with traction assist and control. Also, I like how Chevrolet has brought back the grille from the 1999 Lumina and added it to this car. The front has been rounded off a little more. And it is sharp with the optional rear spoiler deck. It is a compact I highly recommend over any competitor!

    2002 Chevrolet Cavalier - LS Sedan

    Pros: I just covered all.

    Cons: Looks, sluggish, lacks features available with the 2003.

    Advice: For better looks, power and more features with the same gas mileage, I highly recommend the 2003 Cavalier LS instead!

    I compared and put the 2002 up against the 2003. It is both with automatics. It is both LS sedans. The 2002 only had 115 h.p. So, it was sluggish. The 2003 has 140 h.p. I saw no front grille on the 2002! It is ugly! The 2003 has the grille of the former Lumina. It is except a litle rounder. And the 2002 has short tail lights. The 2003 has full length ones. The 2003 also is available with OnStar and XM Satellite Radio. The 2002 is not. My suggestion is to go with the 2003 instead! It is way better!

    2003 Chevrolet Cavalier - Base Coupe

    Pros: The new look and the 140 hp compared to 2002's 115

    Cons: The position of the ac/heat controls

    Advice: Give it a chance, you'll like it

    Of all the comparable vehicles (Neon, Civic, Sunfire...) this is my favorite. The 140 hp engine in the light car really gives it a surprising amount of power. The comfort level for the driver is fine, but my friends in the back seat may have a different opinion. Overall, of all the cars that I considered the Cavalier is by far the most affordable and nicest. The only thing that I don't like is the position of the heat/ac controls. If you have a cup in the cupholder you don't have access to the controls.
