2005 Chevrolet Cavalier LS Sport 2dr Coupe (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This car has been very fun to drive from when I got it in Dec 6 2004. It was the last fully loaded model Ls sport and I love this car. Great gas mileage and very sporty and upgradable if you are into that stuff. The 2.2L Ecotec engine is the best engine in this Cavalier, and I owned 3 Cavaliers.


Best Features

I love the sunroof and 5 speed transmission.


Worst Features

The car is no longer around. I think they should of still had the Cavaliers and just made an SS Cavalier.

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


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


Best Features

Power, gas mileage, comfort


Worst Features

Raise the temp controls

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


Review

Driving seat is not comfortable for extended driving, it is too low. The accelerator pedal is too far back and should be moved more in line with the brake. During cold weather the transmission tends to stick in lower gear for the first 2 miles. I would prefer a higher vehicle next time with more roof clearance and the seat higher from the floor. The lights from other traffic are a definite problem due to the low level of this car.


Best Features

Was one of the few cars available for sale at the dealers. The remainder were heavy duty trucks.


Worst Features

The door locks should auto lock on starting. The mirrors should tilt back on selecting reverse. There are suspension noises that should be removed.

2005 Chevrolet Cavalier 2dr Coupe (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This is my company car. It is junk! 14,000 miles and it is falling apart. The car is driven 100% city in mph zones less than 40mph, but it should not be this much junk. Brakes are shot; Car has overheated more than five times. Something in the steering is going out (makes a weird noise when turning). 17mpg average over 14,000 miles (all city). Car has a hard time starting at times. Rattles in the snow.


Best Features

Nothing.


Worst Features

Get rid of it.
