by dustyrose2 on Jul 1, 2012 Vehicle: 2004 Chevrolet Cavalier Special Value 2dr Coupe (2.2L 4cyl 5M)
I bought this car in 2006 with 60K miles. Its has needed alot of repairs, all my gauges stopped working in 2009, windshield wipers wont stop when you turn them off since 2010, air conditioner makes a constant ticking/clicking sound all the time since right after i bought it, I replaced the engine coils 2x, replaced ignition control module 6x, replaced water pump, fuel pump, clutch, many others cant remember everything, my timing belt started going out last week so I finally traded it in for a new car. Inside of the car is very cheap and basic, but hey the car was cheap and you get what you pay for. The gas mileage was excellent, I say its a good starter car for a teenager.

I love my cavalier.......when it is running! dont ever buy one
I bought it with 65,000 miles on it and it has been worked on more than I have driven it.
I take very good care of my cars but with this one it doesn't matter.
It is cheaply made everywhere you look.it had an electrical problem which I spent a fortune to fix, probably way more than the car is worth.
My cd player, radio and interior lights do not work still.
If I try to put a fuse in it it just sparks...Im sure there is a short some where but im not putting any more money in this car.
I have replaced the alternator multiple times with brand new ones.
It dry starts, gauges dont work, replaced timing chain kit, etc. on and on

I purchased this car in Feb. 04, primarily for a commuter car. So far it has been very reliable. It just has a likeability. Also the $4,000 rebate GM was offering at that time influenced my decision to purchase. Our other car is a 2000 Honda Civic that my wife drives. It's also a great little car, but I prefer to drive the Chevy.
Not much. An upgraded stereo with a CD and MP3 player is now available on the base coupe and sedan. The Sport Appearance package that includes 16-inch wheels, a rear spoiler and sport suspension is also available on the base coupe and sedan.
