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


Review

The car as a whole is great and I am very satisfied. The car has great pickup and looks really good, especially after it's been waxed out here in the desert sun. My only complaint is rattling I hear coming from the center console during normal driving. Pressing my leg against it while driving helps, but it's not a good solution to the problem.

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


Review

We bought the car,an LS sedan, in March 2004 for $12K. GM had $4k in factory rebates, and the dealer discounted as well. We purchased for primarily as a commuter car, but like it so well, we have taken it on trips and vacation. So far very reliable. Love the strong Ecotec engine, and smooth shifting automatic. If the car continues to do well, I'm back in the GM family. Only complaints are minor: like the lousy design of the cup holders blocking HVAC controls. Seats could be more supportive. Other than that. Very satisfied with the car.


Best Features

Engine and transmission. Like the styling as well. Glad to hear the Cobalt getting great reviews from the automotive press, but I think the Cavalier is more stylish. Cobalt looks like everything else from Asia.


Worst Features

Moot point, car has been replaced by Cobalt

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


Review

I purchased this car for a short commute to work, however I have taken it on vacation, and it performed quite well. Sometimes I think the high- falutin car critics,are just a bit too critical of American cars. My Cavalier is reliable, peppy, and a good looking car. I'm happy with it, and I don't care what anyone else says. My next vehicle will probably be a Chevrolet.


Best Features

Engine and transmission


Worst Features

HVAC controls blocked by cup holder placement, firmer seats

Review

Awesome engine and trans. The base
Civic 5 speed I tested had anemic
acceleration compared to the base
Cavalier. The Cavalier sticks to the
road very well with an acceptable ride
quality. The BASE stereo with CD rocks!
I also own a '93 Cavalier 4 door with
223,000 miles which is still very
dependable(only unscheduled maint.was a
set of fuel injectors), and another '04
Cavalier this is my wife's car which is
an automatic with 24,000 trouble free
miles. My "other car" is a '96 Caprice
with 178,000 miles. I am very impressed
by the amount of car Chevrolet offers
for $10k. Based on the price, mileage,
and reliability I have received I can
personally say the imports don't
impress me at all.


Best Features

Power, reliability, handling/ride quality,gas mileage, stereo, exterior appearance. Fun to drive, I wish I could give this an 11 in the above survey.


Worst Features

Chevrolet read this please. Don't stop making the Cavalier.
