Pros: fun to drive
Cons: too smalloverall a fun car to drive with excellant mpg.
Pros: The price is more then right.
Cons: The breaks and tires are JUNK!
Advice: Not a bad vehicle if you are on a budget, however there are manny more choice to consider (Honda and Toyota)The Chevy Cavalier could easily be compared to the hot dog of the automotive world; not the most refined, a good source of heartburn and worries, cheap but hits the spot. The Cavalier i bought (2003 VL Coupe) was affordable and it hasnt had to manny problems. Gas consumption is not the best and the finish of the car feels like a Tupperware container. The 2.2 Echotech engine is peppy and the 5 spd manual transmission does an honest job. However the shifter is clunky and hard to operate. As far as breaks are concerned, they seem like they were meant to be on a bycicle. The tires are too small for the car and the VL base model is as base as it comes. Features are expensive and fuel economy isnt great. All in all, not a bad car but if you can afford to go Japanese... do so.
Pros: fast car shuts up the cavi haters!
Cons: back seat room not to much of it and i really need it!
