This car has positives: nice body
style, good gas mileage, nice interior,
etc. However, something is not right
with the ABS. Kind of scary. When
brakes are applied (while slowing down
to turn, stopping, etc. even on dry
pavement), there's a hum, a vibration
under your foot through the brake
pedal, brakes lock up anyway and I've
slid (in snow) before the car stops. A
few times, I was afraid I wasn't going
to be able to stop in time and no, I
wasn't driving fast at all, driving
through residential streets. Also,
power window on front passenger side
stopped working after only 40K miles.
Difficult to get in and out of the back
seats, even though it's a 4 door.
Great gas mileage, nice body style.
Fix ABS problem! I've looked at reviews
for previous year models of Cavaliers
and many have noted a problem with the
ABS. Don't put the beverage holders in
front of the controls for the AC and
heater! When you have beverages there,
you can't get to the controls!
