Pros: The rear seatbelt system.
Cons: The cupholders
Advice: If you are looking for a great economy car the cavalier is your your best bet!I purchased the 2003, two door cavalier. I found the car to be very roomy, considering that it is a two door vehicle.I love the features that the cavalier has compared to other vehicles in it's class.The cavalier also has better performance than the other cars I considered.I think I found a dependable and fantastic car.
Pros: I love the entire car
Cons: I don't have power seats
Advice: Test drive it, It's greatI 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!
Pros: standard air conditioned
Cons: it feels good when driving
Advice: look for ION 4 coupe it has better shape and more featuresthe 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!
Pros: I have covered it.
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!
Pros: ADJUSTABLE SEAT BELT HARNESS
Cons: FEELS CRAMPED IN DRIVERS SEAT ESPECIALY WITH COAT ON
Advice: USE INCENTIVES AND SHOP AROUND TO GET MORE CAR FOR MONEYEXCELLENT FUEL ECONOMY 37 MILES PER GALLON LAST FILL UP.ENGINE HAS ADAQUITE POWER.OVER ALL RIDE IS DECENT TOO.WHEEL COVERS MAKE NOISE OVER ROUGH ROADS.PRICE WAS BIG FACTOR. FELT I GOT ALOT OF CAR FOR DOLLAR.
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 itOf 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.
Cons: Interior is way too small
Advice: Make sure you are looking for aI had the chance to drive this car for a road trip, 5 1/2 hours one way. Though this is an economy car, it lacks basic power from the engine and no comfort at all. My back and arms were very sore. I have been on a 26 hour road trip and have been comfortable, so I know it had nothing to do with sitting for that long; just in this car. For a younger person (high school or college), this is a great car. Also, it was too 'normal' in order to appeal to a lot of customers. I tend to favor 'unusual' vehicles because the market base is smaller and the manufacture really has to think to see if an idea will work. Great car for a high school or college kid, not great for anyone over 25.
