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


I bought my car in 2004 with 24k miles for about $8500. When purchased, my car would get 30-32 miles per gallon highway and 28-30 mpg town. I have had my car for 7 years and now have 165k miles racked up. On average, I get 29.5-31 mpg highway and 28 mpg town.

Over the years I have replaced a few things:
Carpet (warranty)
Ignition switch x3 (warranty)
Fuel pump x1 (around 90k miles)
Brakes x2 (one set front and back with rotors- have lifetime warranty on parts)
Tires (set of 4) x2
Fan motor (very inexpensive through private mechanic) and belt x1

0verall, very few inexpensive mechanic bills. I am starting to burn oil, but the car exhaust does not stink.

Best Features

Economical efficiency. Little maintenance cost. Low price if car Faithful, reliable, and zippy. Still looks good.

Worst Features

Is not comfortable for long rides/drives. Arms get tired and butt goes numb in the seats. Suggest real bucket seats.
