Having not quite driven 500 miles yet,
I have to say the most impressive thing
about the '03 Cavalier is the 2.2L
EcoTec engine. It sounds good and,
combined with the automatic xmission,
moves very smoothly. I really feel the
power when I get up around 60mph. My
first Cav since '85, I hope GM has
learned something about engineering. I
like what I see so far.
Beautiful, bright yellow color; sporty
body styling; zippy EcoTec engine.
Reliability and fuel mileage TBD.
Consumer Reports rated this car as the
worst in its class - I hope they're
Move climate controls higher (mounted
in inconvenient place behind gear shift
lever), use less cheap materials in
interior, and cut the price about (this
car should go for about $10,000 MSRP).
