Review

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


Favorite Features

GM needs to admit their crappy parts fail

Review

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


Favorite Features

Power, gas mileage, comfort


Suggested Improvements

Raise the temp controls

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


Review

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


Favorite Features

The air conditioner blows super cold. The speakers, theft system


Suggested Improvements

Move the a/c controls higher up, have a seat raiser standard on the seats, auto off lights, and onstar standard

Review

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!


Favorite Features

I love my fabric upholstery, and best of all, I love the design of this Cavalier.


Suggested Improvements

I wish though, that it also had a cassette player, even though I have a CD player, cassette also would be great.
