2003 Chevrolet Cavalier 2dr Coupe (2.2L 4cyl 5M)

Review

At 4 yrs. old this car has developed a number of problems that a car its age should not have. The entire serpentine belt has slipped off and the car periodically stalls when stopped. The trunk latch also broke, a problem the dealership tells me is very common in in the Cavalier. We've also had smaller annoying problems -- a buzz in the ventilation system, a CD player that skips incessantly, and a fuse issue that causes lights to burn out quickly. Aside from the reliability issue, the car is poorly designed. Sun visors droop low across the windshield over time, the seats are uncomfortable, the cup holders block the climate control, and the roof pillars are in the driver's line of sight.

Favorite Features

Front wheel drive. Relatively fuel efficent

Suggested Improvements

Improve reliability record! More standard features -- currently a bad value relative to other cars Head restraints that protect better in crashes More comfortable seats Improve sound system -- tinny and CD skipping issue Raise center console so that it can be an armrest More backseat legroom
