I am quite impressed with this 03
chevy cavalier. I used to drive a
toyota corolla, 93, which was quite
reliable but had many electrical
problems, and started to eat up oil at
100k of its life. We have had many
chevys into the 300k's and havnt ever
felt the need to check the oil. First
things first, this cavalier is fast
(for its class and price) especially
if you get the standard tranny.
Nothing feels cheap about the interior
or exterior and the car is very
attractive. With dealer incentives
off the msrp right now you cant go
wrong. Stock stereo is great,
although i got the highest package.
Quick accel., 30mpg, great handling.
I am a do it myself guy so i would say
one of my favorite features on the
ecotec 2.2L is the drop in oil filter,
its right next to the battery, and
saves alot of time. Stereo is great
also. My favorite feature has to be
the quick accelaration for the $$.
My only complaint is that when you set
your climate controls to the front
window defrost, you have no choice but
to have the AC running. It
automatically goes on, i suppose to
guarentee that your window will defog.
