Gave me some good years.

1999 Chevrolet Cavalier RS 2dr Coupe
But not sad to see it go. Just traded this car in for a new 2010 Mazda3. Honestly, I must have had a runt of the litter, because I have no idea how people are getting ~30 MPG out of this car. I was getting about 19 MPG (combined highway/city) pretty consistently out of it for the last 3-4 years, that's not great. The functional component themselves (engine, transmission, brakes, etc.) held up great over the long haul, but the interior comfort and cosmetics have broken down pretty bad over the life of the car. It was a good car, but it was time for it to go.
Good styling, fairly reliable. not a great engine, but because of the small size it was still fun to drive.
A complete overhaul of the interior to start, and better fuel economy would be great.
