This is my very first car. I've had it for almost 2 yrs now and have over 110K on it and it's still running strong. AC works amazing and so does the heat. It gets regular oil changes and tune ups and has amazing gas mileage. I've done alot of driving in it, miles at a time sometimes and it doesn't ever have a problem. I've gotten into one accident with it and it was just exterior damage, and the car looks and feels like it never happened. Nothing major has had to be fixed on it yet. Runs very well in the snow.. Very reliable car!!
I love the gas mileage it gets, the sporty look to it, Cool AC and the reliability.
I think all the cavaliers should have ABS. Also the cupholders stink where they are at. it would also be nice if everything wasn't manual. (example: the mirrors) it's a little frustrating when they freeze to a weird position in the snow.
