Review

I love my Chevy. It's 2018 and he still runs like a champ. I bought it in 2010. It's a 2004 cavalier. Love it. Please bring them back.

2004 Chevrolet Cavalier 2dr Coupe (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


Review

2004 Cavalier was my first NEW car purchase {had purchased used cars prior}.
After 180,000+ miles can not really complain.
It did what it was purchased to do - used as a commuter car, averaging over 400+ miles per week.
After all of those miles, still getting 30+ mpg.

Yes road-noisy ride, cd no longer works, replaced clutch after 175,000+ miles, shifter needs replaced [hard to get into 1st or 2nd, really loose].

But for a "basic $10,000.00 car" in 2004, it has been a worthy vehicle.

2004 Chevrolet Cavalier LS 4dr Sedan (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I got my cavalier at around 40k miles, recently traded it in for a pickup at 105k miles. Was very sad to see it go. Only thing I ever needed to fix was a bad fuel pump and a leaking water pump. Got me through many drives from Washington-California, and a year of 30 mile work commutes. I also left it sitting for almost a year and had no problem starting it up. Only real complaints I have are the radio controls are blocked if you have anything in the cupholders, the piece of plastic on the dash against the windshield cracks and the road noise. Other than that, it's fun to drive, comfortable and has great gas mileage. Would definately recommend!

2004 Chevrolet Cavalier LS 2dr Coupe (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I drove this car for almost a year before someone ran a red light and totaled it.
Looks great for the price, easy to drive and great for a first car!
I bought it with 90k and drove it to 100k.
I did have a few issues with it.
The backseat was really difficult to access.
If you buy with the original radio, be aware that installing a new radio could put you in the $200-300 range as the system is connected to many other things in the car (like the beeps for when your car door is open).
AC went out around 94,000 miles.
The lights below around the gearshift went out, and I had to hit the gearshift to make them come back on.
All in all, I'm still happy with the purchase and sad to lose it.
