Awesome engine and trans. The base
Civic 5 speed I tested had anemic
acceleration compared to the base
Cavalier. The Cavalier sticks to the
road very well with an acceptable ride
quality. The BASE stereo with CD rocks!
I also own a '93 Cavalier 4 door with
223,000 miles which is still very
dependable(only unscheduled maint.was a
set of fuel injectors), and another '04
Cavalier this is my wife's car which is
an automatic with 24,000 trouble free
miles. My "other car" is a '96 Caprice
with 178,000 miles. I am very impressed
by the amount of car Chevrolet offers
for $10k. Based on the price, mileage,
and reliability I have received I can
personally say the imports don't
impress me at all.
Power, reliability, handling/ride
quality,gas mileage, stereo, exterior
appearance. Fun to drive, I wish I
could give this an 11 in the above
Chevrolet read this please. Don't stop
making the Cavalier.
