I purchased it new and have had no problems. This is my second Cavalier, having bought a '97 new. Great A/C and heat, pickup, reliability, and gas mileage. I like its looks too. I disagree with Consumer Reports concerning this vehicle's comfort and interior design. I would recommend it to anyone in the market for cheap transportation and some degree of style.
Gas mileage, looks, power, low cost, creature comforts like heat, A/C, cupholders. Also, it is very reliable.
Rear light bulbs/turn signals needed to be replaced - a small job.
