Cons: The seatbelt retainer on drivers seat is designed poorly
Advice: with rebates this is the biggest bargan in the classI test drove a Neon,LancerOZ Rally, Mazda Protege5, Corrola S. After going a few blocks in the Cavalier I new It was the car I wanted. I bought an LS Sport in Yellow. It is fully loaded and cost about $2000.00 less than any of the others except the Neon. I have found no problems at all with this car.The paint job is flawless. The new Ecotec engine is a blast to drive.

Pros: GERTAG SHIFTER
Advice: DEFINITELY INVEST IN THE LS SPORT PACKAGEWIPERS ARE INFERIOR. PLENTY OF POWER. NICE, QUIET RIDE. EXCELLENT SOUND SYSTEM.
Pros: good gas mileage
Cons: head room
Advice: it is a great buy for he moneyThe car handled nicely. It is easy to park. It was also fun to drive. I am about 5'19' and could have used more headroom.
Pros: Very comfortable seats, makes driving long distance easier.
Cons: Rear seat entry and exit is slightly difficult.
Advice: The only thing you have to worry about is choosing a color.Very sensitive, easy to handle. Power is available when needed, but not overwhelming. Small enough to be a real compact car, but doesn't saccrifice interior comfort and space.
Cons: Should have got the power drivers seat
Advice: You cant go wrong! I would suggest the manual transmissionI traded in a 1999 mustang for my Z24 and I have to say I dont miss the Stang for a second! Even with a smaller engine, my Z24, 5 sp. has no problem with power and doesnt give me the feeling that its 'struggling' like the Ford gave me. The interior is well put together, no rattles or squeaks and I think it gives a nice ride. I average about 32 mph with a mix of in town and highway driving.
