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

Review

Traded a Ford Escort in for a new Cavalier. The seats were "horrible" with these deep designer groves that hurt your butt and back. Added seat cushion and thick seat covers-Malibu seats are good should have installed one of those. View to back terrible with back seat headrests and third light in middle of view. Cornered like a drunken sailor. Traded it for a different car with only 4800 miles on it. Defroster design in middle of windshield not very effective either as it distributed fan pattern in middle with no coverage till later for the driver to see through. To me a dated design ready to be replaced! My 1999 Escort handled better with better seats!

Best Features

Terrific gas mileage. Got 38 mpg on cruise at 65 mph. Strong engine and quiet transmission that shifted smoothly. Great drivetrain with a dated suspension around it. Great radio and stereo.

Worst Features

Replace the car but keep the drivetrain as that is excellent.
