This car seems to have been designed
to be basic transportation with a few
extra features to make you forget
that. While the Cavalier may be a bit
higher priced than its rivals in the
same catagory, you can't find a better
mode of basic transportation. The
automatic transmission is a charm,
seemlessly gliding through gears, and
the 140HP engine pops when you need it
to. The ECOTEC engine also sips fuel,
my highway mileage is easily 38-40
MPG. How we ever got by without 60/40
fold down seats I'll never know, this
feature is the bridge in utility that
hatchbacks always had, and traditional
coupes could only dream of...until now.
60/40 fold dowwn rear seats,
increasing the utility of the car.
Great automatic transmission. Good
instrument layout. Fuel economy is
better than the published EPA
numbers. A/C is standard. Responsive
Larger trunk opening. Better seat
design, both front and rear needs more
ergonomic engineering. Increased head
room, and 6-way adjustable front
seats. 4 wheel disk brakes instead of
forward disk and rear drum brakes.
Bring back the standard ABS on all
