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


This is a no-frills car that beats the
hell out of the cheap makes that you
find in this price range. My previous
car was a '97 Kia Sephia, and I am
already impressed with the build
quality, quietness, ride, handling,
performance, and standard features.
The styling leaves something to be
desired -- there are nice features,
but the rear-end looks like a Ford
Contour. The front-end is a marked
improvement over previous Cav. years.

Best Features

The Ecotec engine is top-notch for this class of car! It's smooth and the power is good for a car this size. Seats are more comfortable than any others you'll find for the price range. Low wind noise for a cheap car. Basically the same as a Sunfire but insurance is MUCH cheaper!

Worst Features

Interior just looks cheap. I know GM can do better than this. Could stand to be just a little roomier. Unimpressive crash-test ratings. I hope I don't get hit!
