It's the best car I could imagine for a first car. It's fun, and pretty economical, great for A to B driving, and as reliable as anything. The only damage to my car is my fault, and even after rolling off the road and down a hill there was practically no damage at all! IT'S A TANK! But runs like any sporty little coupe you can find. The fuel economy says 20-26 but I actually get around 28, living and driving on back roads mostly, and highway. Sometimes better, sometimes worse. But anyways, it may not be the sexiest beast around, but it's just as good if not better than one. I wish they still made them, if you ever find one and someone you know needs a great reliable and durable car-get it.

For a car to from point A to B, this car has been great. Twenty years old and still running awesome. I have 95k on it and picked it up 4 years ago with 54k. Its cheap to buy parts for and runs forever. This is my second Cavalier and a true fan. Look around, you still see old Cavaliers everywhere. Thats tells a story on the quality these little cars are known for.

Great little car, bought for my father
when he was commuting 600-700 miles a
week for less than $1000 from local GM
dealer. Only work needed was a new
battery and a new starter (althouth
replacing just the solenoid probably
would have fixed it as well). Love the
styling on it, comfortable seats, good
gas mileage (25 mpg or so in town, 30+
on the highway). Always as dependable as
any car I've had (although my old Datsun
210 wagon was pretty good too), with
terrific ground clearance (a big help
for getting through the snow where I
live). Solid machine I'd recommend to
anyone needing good, cheap transportation!
Convertible model disappears. New engines have more power; base 2.2-liter motor pumps out 95 horsepower, while the 3.1-liter V6 makes 140 horsepower. Door-mounted passive seatbelts have been added. Seats and fabrics are new this year. RS trim level reappears on wagon models.
