2005 Chevrolet Cavalier LS Sport 2dr Coupe (2.2L 4cyl 5M)
I enjoyed my Cavalier very much when I first bought it, just as any new car owner enjoys their car. It was smooth sailing until I got into an accident where I was T-Boned by a Corolla (a car not much bigger than the Cav). After that, things just went downhill. First of all, it crumbled like a sheet of paper in the accident while the Corolla had only a few scratches on its bumper. Shortly after, my A/C went out, and now it rattles at low speeds. Its a good car until you get some mileage on it.
It gets pretty good gas mileage. And it's not very pricy, but i still regret my purchase.
The Cav has been discontinued so any suggestions would be pointless. My suggestion to buyers is to not buy this car,unless its all you can afford.
