2005 Chevrolet Cavalier 4dr Sedan (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


It's my third Cavalier. Great value for the $...especially after 4.5k rebate. Never let me down...just gas & regular maint., brake job every 50k, tires at 80k, first tuneup at 100k. 4 cylinder engine has plenty of pickup. Averaging 28 mpg for combination city-highway driving, and have gotten 34+ mpg highway...while avg 70 mph. Excellent traction in snow and wet roads. Handling is firm and predictable, but is a bit soft on tight turns at speed. Interior is comfortable + has LARGE amount of hauling space with the fold- down split rear seat.

Best Features

Great sounding stock radio/CD player, with excellent EQ and pan controls. Variable speed wipers.

Worst Features

Base sedan no longer has ABS or tilt- steering as standard. Too bad, previous years did. But still great value for the $!
