I started out being really happy with this car. It was cheap, less than $2000; had great gas mileage, about 27 mpg highway and about 18 - 20 mpg city. It's a small maneuverable car. Luckily for me, replacement parts are cheap and it's usually a relatively easy car to work on. A month after buying the car used from a friend, I started having issues with it. It could partly be because of the mileage (it had well over 100k miles when I purchased it); I also think the previous owner might not have maintained it very well. Either way, I started having problems almost immediately, and these were mostly issues that I couldn't have fixed aside from paying to have it taken to a mechanic. First, the fuel pump went out a month after I bought it. This was a $500 fix at the local mechanic. I though... (more)
Pros
Gas mileage, car is small so it's very maneuverable and easy to drive.
Cons
Things tend to break on it frequently so it has to get a lot of work done to stay in decent shape long-term.

I first purchased my car in 2011, and was impressed by the interior. It is a fully old school car: manual lock, manual windows, and a cassette deck that I had to scramble to find cassettes for (a very nostalgic activity). The seats are a durable material that withheld a few water stains here and there, and the trunk had a great capacity to cart me to and from an out of state college. The controls are easy to figure out and are not complicated at all - I had all of them figured out in about five minutes when I first slipped behind the wheel.
Story
Two years ago I was due for emissions testing on my car. For a little while, a "check engine" light had appeared on my dashboard, but I had been assured that it wasn't anything dire. However, that light needed to go off for my car to pass. An examination was completed, about $1000 was spent on replacing the valve and doing the other necessary maintenance, and I was given my car back to reset t... (more)
Pros
A definite pro is the gas mileage. Although it's just an average-sized gas tank, I can go to and from work and fill up for only about $20 once every two weeks, so it's very affordable. Another pro is that the engine and battery are extremely reliable. I haven't had to worry about them at all. I have driven this car through all of the worst blizzards and snowstorms of the past five years, and while I have to drive slowly I can get up hills easily (and down them, too, if I pump the brake a lot). It drives easy in the snow for its age and I trust it to get me home when Mother Nature says othe... (more)
Cons
The biggest cons with this vehicle have been the extensive repair work I have had to pour into it in only five years. However, at the same time, that repair work is due to its age. This car is nearly old enough to vote. And because I've had to drive it in snowstorms, and due to whatever else the previous owner(s) did with it, the interior was rusted through and through and has led to the strangest accidents. Ever hear of a rear axle breaking in half and a rear tire popping off? I hadn't either, until it happened to me just as I got off a busy highway one night. Of course, everyone's own ca... (more)

I have had an overall very good experience with my 1997 Chevrolet Cavalier. My father, who was an ASE certified mechanic in the early 1990s and taught me many things I know about working on cars, agreed in that this car is an excellent choice for an economy car. The most salient features I can give for this car are its reliability, economy, and simplicity.
Story
One memorable story I can offer is when I did a large paper route with this rather small car, and filled the entire car, including the trunk, with papers for a route- my coworker noted hot strong the back shocks were to not buckle under the weight.
Pros
Although I believe this to be true with most cars in the recent past- I know for a fact that if you take care of this car, it will take care of you. I acquired this car with slightly over 100,000 miles, and today have 235,000 miles on the odometer, and in that time no major repairs have been necessary. I do most of the maintenance myself, and change the oil at least once a year with an average of 10000 miles of driving each year and at least semi-synthetic oil usage and a high-quality oil filter, such as Mobil-1. Although not much can be said for refinement or sophistication, the 2.2 liter... (more)
Cons
Unfortunately, this vehicle does have some notable flaws, including a very poor side-impact rating by the IIHS in crash tests. This car also has a bit of a rust problem, and after almost 19 years (this car was produced in 1996), there is some notable clear coat failure. The fit and finish also leaves something to be desired, as the design is not too inspired, and the dash shell has a bad habit of cracking. The Harrison V-5 compressor tends to leak at the shaft seal after a few years. This car is not a performance car by any means- its 120 horsepower and 125 pound feet of torque leave much ... (more)
