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


Bought this 03 Cavalier used, 125000km on it, it has 175,000 on it 2 years later. This car was my hero in bad times once I was finished school looking for a job. It is so cheap to maintain and repair. Somebody hit my car and ran, I bought a new bumper for 40 bucks from somebody and put it on. Nothing has gone wrong with this car, except a fuel pump, because all I could afford was to put 5 bucks of gas in it and ran it on the light the whole time (my own fault). You will dust standard Civics and Corollas in this thing, not any Japanese cars give you 155lb feet at mid range. Fuel economy is excellent. Car gets a bit rattly with age, but so does any car. Buy it!

Best Features

Cheapest car in the world to maintain. Peppier than your buddies think. Good gas mileage. Easy to do you own oil changes and tune-ups. Good braking performance.

Worst Features

It's base car. If I got leather seats I would be paying a lot more. Unnecessary for someone on a budget. If you want a luxury car, look elsewhere.
