I test drove 4 cars before deciding on
the Cavalier. A Honda Civic, a Mazda
Protege, a Ford Focus ZX3 and the
Cavalier. The Cavalier beat them all
hands down for value vs. dollars. The
Honda felt "tinny" as did the Mazda.
The Focus I tested had a terrible front
end vibration to which the dealer
attributed to "rust on the rotors from
sitting on the lot" - What? None of
the other cars had that problem. The
Cavalier is basic, good transporation.
First: Engine performance
Second: Exterior design
15 inch tires would be nice on standard
package. Other than that - none Great
