I got my cavalier entering my senior year in high school and had it for a good 4 years. When I first got the car it had some minor repairs that had to be done from the previous owner but once I did that the car gave me almost no trouble. Just minor things here and there. The car never broke down on me while on the road and always started(except one time the starter had to be replaced) If you want reliability I say go with this car.
-Pretty good gas milage
-decent sized trunk for a small car
-The front headlights weren't very good and could use improvement.
-The clear coating and paint seemed to peele pretty easily off the car from the weather. The car is over 10 years old but still.
-Could use a little more HP.
