Review of the 2005 Chevrolet Cavalier

  • Despite various revisions, there's no hiding the fact that the 2005 Chevrolet Cavalier was engineered more than a decade ago, leaving it hopelessly outclassed by nearly every other car on the market.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Low price, torquey four-cylinder engine, optional satellite radio and OnStar.

  • Cons

    Ancient design inside and out, cheap interior materials, poor build quality, low resale value, poor side-impact and front-offset crash test results, ABS no longer standard.

  • What's New for 2005

    No major changes as the Chevy Cavalier gallops into the automotive sunset.

Has some issues

by on
Vehicle: 2005 Chevrolet Cavalier LS 4dr Sedan (2.2L 4cyl 5M)

gas gauge failed at 48,000. horn stopped at 50,000, engine seems strong at 52,000. if you are considering buying one of these used, tell them to replace the instrument panel as this is a big issue with these cars

Best car for the money

by on
Vehicle: 2005 Chevrolet Cavalier LS 4dr Sedan (2.2L 4cyl 5M)

I purchased my Cavalier about 14 months ago and already have 55,000 miles on it. It has been a great car so far. Most powerful 4 cyl I have ever driven, with better fuel economy than any I have driven. The seats are quite comfy, great stereo system. Doesn’t handle great on curvy roads, but it’s not a sports car. But so far it has been maintenance free. Highly recommended for the price
