2003 Chevrolet Cavalier 4dr Sedan (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


I bought my Cavalier immediately following ABS problems in a previous car (a much larger and less fuel efficient Cadillac). I bought it from a rental car sales lot and since then I have put 1 qt and a half of oil in it (exc oil changes), no coolant, 2 air filters, one set of brakes, and put air in the tires twice. Coming from an extreme nickel and diming situation, this car provided me with an oasis of carefree driving. I love to drive it; its agile and quick, makes almost no noise, and never runs hot. This car is definitely my "little buddy". I plan on doing several aftermarket changes to update it a little, but it doesn't need much.

Best Features

Sanddrift color, tight handling. It's simple and economic, not a playground with all those stupid extras. Standard model is awesome.

Worst Features

I would have liked to have seen a real ashtray, but it was so easy to modify it myself i don't suppose it matters.
