This is a no-frills car that beats the
hell out of the cheap makes that you
find in this price range. My previous
car was a '97 Kia Sephia, and I am
already impressed with the build
quality, quietness, ride, handling,
performance, and standard features.
The styling leaves something to be
desired -- there are nice features,
but the rear-end looks like a Ford
Contour. The front-end is a marked
improvement over previous Cav. years.
The Ecotec engine is top-notch for
this class of car! It's smooth and
the power is good for a car this
size. Seats are more comfortable than
any others you'll find for the price
range. Low wind noise for a cheap
car. Basically the same as a Sunfire
but insurance is MUCH cheaper!
Interior just looks cheap. I know GM
can do better than this. Could stand
to be just a little roomier.
Unimpressive crash-test ratings. I
hope I don't get hit!
