"My experience with the Cav has been very good. The Z-24 is gutsy and the engine and drive train have been reliable. Gas mileage runs around 32-34, documented. My main complaint is that this one has rusted substantially, and the plastic dashboard is falling apart. If it weren't for that I would keep it forever."

"The Cavalier is very comfortable when driving. Very good gas mileage sometimes seems like I don't need to gas up. Good on the highway drives like a dream. I would let my grand daughter take it on long trips and not worry about break downs! Good starter car!"

"I purchased my 03 Cavalier (sport pack) in 2009 at 33,000 miles and put about 76,000 on it. I never had any major problems with the car. I did have to fix the power windows, horn, and a lighter but the major functions of the car never failed me. Unfortunately it was recently totaled in an accident and the car buying experience made me appreciate how reliable this car was for me. Its not flashy and a bit loud, but it gets the job done, which is all we really need. So if you are out there looking for a reliable, good enough gas mileage car, I would definitely recommend the Cavalier."

"I love my chevrolet cavalier. I have had this car since 2004, and it has been great. It was a great value, and I have had virtually no problems. I have lived in hot and cold climates with this vehicle and noticed no real difference in the car's performance. The only thing that has ever gone wrong in this car is that the odomoter light got really light and had to be fixed. No other problems. The heat and air in this car is awesome. It gets to the right temperature quickly and blasts out with a lot of force. I love my speakers, too. The car plays music pretty well. The only other negative is that when I drive, I can hear the wind and other road sounds pretty clearly if the radio is off. My husband's car does not do this. Overall, I love my cavalier and wish they still made these as I will likely need a new car soon (a bigger car for a family)."
