"I loved my 2000 Cavalier, it is still running with 250K and still gets 36 miles to the gallon. I put the first 5 miles on the car test driving it and it has been good to me though the 16 years I have owned it. It lived in a CITY for a very short amount of time."

"Purchased used in 2001 with very low mileage. I have driven to work (and every where else) every day with only minor repairs (replaced radiator and spark plugs/wires at 230,000 still drives great) Probably not the most comfortable with more than 4 people but I am usually driving so it doesn't bother me too much."

Pros: "Reliable"

Cons: "Not great on gas"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"I love my little Cavalier. I want to keep it & drive it as a classic. The spoiler on the back makes it sporty & the engine roars when I need speed. It's not the greatest on gas but most of my driving is around town. I have never had a problem with it. I get regular oil changes & all I've ever had to replace is the tires, battery & windshield wipers."

"Great little commuter car. No major repairs even though I did not take care of it as I should have (change oil/filters etc). I wish they were still manufactured."

"I love this car so much. second owner (2002 cavalier coupe) - drives incredibly well in city and highway, super aerodynamic. finding it extremely hard to part with this car- have an opportunity to trade in for a 2004 car for a steal price and I STILL don't know if I'll trade for it. wish i could own both!!!! drives well in snow, not as well in rain. I'd own this car for a lifetime if I could!"
