Isn't reliability supposed to be bad?
By Nathan P. on


2003 Chevrolet Cavalier LS 2dr Coupe (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


As I understood things I was told, when
you buy inexpensive American cars, the
ease of finding replacement parts was
only good in that it offset the
frequency of the repairs you would
need. Not true. In 2000, I leased a
Cav for three years, and didn't
have a single problem other than a flat
tire. I was happy enough with the
lease, that I bought a new one in 2003.
It remains an easy-to-drive, easy-to-
maintain vehicle. I'm also pleasantly
surprised by the roominess of the
driver's seat. I'm 6'3, and big the
other way too, and I have no trouble
fitting into the driver's seat. I can
even stretch my legs a bit without
pushing the pedals.

Best Features

Ample leg and head room for a tall driver. Well designed radio/CD player. ABS. 24/32 mpg

Worst Features

When you lower the sun visor, it knocks the rear-view mirror out of alignment. A powered antenna would be nice as well.
