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. Doesnít handle great on curvy roads, but itís not a sports car. But so far it has been maintenance free. Highly recommended for the price




Purchased used

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

I am 5'1 and the car has no seat raiser which turned me off. Also, the 2003 Malibu's had an automatic shut off for the lights which this car doesn't have for some reason. The driver door locks if you get out of the car and close the door, so you need to make sure you don't leave your keys in the car. Fuel economy is poor but I am slightly biased because I wanted a Toyota Prius which has 55+ mpg. Power window controls are in the center of the car instead of on the door which is hard to get used to. The handling could be a little better, but I just learned to drive so maybe it's me




Love my cavalier

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

This car is one of the best cars I have ever owned. The mileage I get on gas is great. I take trips to NC every 3 months, and I am always comfortable, and feel very secure that my car is going to get me there safe, without any problems. I am proud to drive this little car, actually it fits me perfectly, since I am only 5 ft tall. And the trunk holds plenty of suitcases! I do not regret purchasing this car, and would recommend it to all!
