Although it may be out-dated, the Cavalier remains affordable, economical, and a reliable means of transportation. It's competitors may have better quality, but they also have a considerably higher price tag. This car best suits what I need. I fail to see why anyone would want to spend thousands more on bells and whistles that aren't really necessary. To each their own, I guess.
Sporty styling, peppy 2.2 engine with 5 speed manual. Nice ride and handling.
As per the comments in my review. They could make improvements to some of the fit and finish. But these would only increase the Cavalier's affordability.
