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

Review

The Cavalier is nothing fancy, a basic car, but as a commuter car it gets consistently 30 mpg and has had zippo defects. Nice mileage, with various rebates and payments I ended up at less the $10k for a new vehicle, which is unheard of. (Thank you, GM MasterCard.) This car seems to get knocked in trade rags; I don't understand why. I test drove about six-seven models in the $15- $20k price range, and all have similar plusses/minusses. Most seemed noisy, and handled adequately but not great. Cavalier in this price range really seems to be near the top. And it's fully debugged, in my opinion. Traded in an '87 Corolla, am quite happy I did.

Favorite Features

Gas mileage, great final off-the-lot price.

Suggested Improvements

Better "stock" stereo and an overall better warranty (GM needs to get with the program, 3 yr/36 is old news).
