2003 Chevrolet Cavalier LS Sport 2dr Coupe (2.2L 4cyl 5M)
I bought this car in 2002 and have about 97,000 miles on it. I just had to replace the fuel pump ($600), replaced the brake pads, and have put new tires on the car. Other than that, regular oil changes and the car drives wonderfully. It may not be the fanciest car around, but for someone on a budget, it is perfect.
I think it handles very well, even in the winter. The air and heat work great.
Like most people have said, the cup holders are in the way. It also looks like there is a problem with the fuel pumps in these cars, which isn't a cheap fix.
