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


Review

This car has made amazing mileage. On a trip across SD got 35 miles to the gallon and in normal traffic around 30 miles per gallon. It runs well and the air conditioning is excellent it keeps the entire car cool.


Best Features

This car has an amazing sound system and can clearly play anything in it, and the interior could not be better it is soft but durable


Worst Features

None

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


Review

I bought my car in Nov of 2006, about to trade it in for something different. The suspension is really bad (every bump or hole in the road makes my car sound like it's dying, when any other car I've been in will go over the same ones very smoothly). I wouldn't recommend it for anyone with babies (small back seat), it's not very safe (car would crumble in an accident), the front bumper is removable, it kind of "clips" on, the turn signal lights and tag light have been replaced many times, gas mileage is not that great! There is no way it's 30MPG. I'd say more like 20. It's not a bad car, overall I enjoyed having it.


Best Features

Mine was very sporty looking (black w/ silver racing stripes), spoiler, sunroof, its pretty small and easy to drive!


Worst Features

They don't make these anymore so what's the point. This car was just your average car, nothing special, nothing bad. Just simple and affordable.

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


Review

My husband and I have had our Cavalier only a few months and have been very pleased with it. It is very fun to drive and we love the way it looks. We have read the other reviews and do not agree with everything that is said about the Cavalier. With todays gas prices it is a very economical car.


Best Features

CD player, remote button for the trunk, center console storage.


Worst Features

The only thing that needs to be improved is the cup holders.

Review

I've never had more problems with a car than this one. My Cavalier has had one thing go wrong after the other. It's never been abused, the oil has been changed every 3,000 miles and it's not even driven that much. I only have one more year of payments, but I've decided to trade it in for something other than a GM. Maybe I just got a lemon. For those who are about to buy one, beware. The Cavalier is a cheap car and it's one of those things where you get what you pay for. I guess it's back to imports for me.


Best Features

Gas mileage, stereo.


Worst Features

Too many to mention.

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


Review

My car got great gas mileage. It did ok in snow and mud. When I got 69,000 miles my car was making noises when I started it. It was my lower motor knocking, to mechanics it made no sense it was a flexplate and overhaul on my motor. So my conclusion is they do good until 69,000 miles.
