The car was purchased with only about 5,000 miles on it in 2005. Now, in 2017, she's got about 180,000 on her and still kicking. It's a very plain-looking car. I got the two-door sporty model with non-automatic locks or windows; so very old school, but I also didn't want superficial automatic features that could break unexpectedly and would cost too much to repair. There were no mechanical issues with my car for about the first 48,000 miles. The first thing to go out was the starter, but that was easy enough to replace (but by no means cheap). The gear shift in the center console also had an issue (widespread across this particular Chevy model) where the transmission would get stuck in one position because a tiny piece inside would eventually break and cause the car to get stuck in for...

Story
I have driven from Houston to San Antonio dozens of times, and I can often use just under a half of a tank of gas both ways on the highway—that's about 400 miles. I also used to work with horses, and we frequently needed to haul hay from one barn to another, but we didn't have a truck available to use one day. I was able to stack seven bales of hay on my tiny car and move it. My Cavalier is aw... (more)
Pros
Having all the most basic features, I didn't have issues with windows or locks breaking. The A/C has only ever gone out one time in 12 years and always runs ice-cold. Living in Texas, that's the best thing a car could give you. It's more reliable than most Toyota's I've run across. It's dirt cheap, so when you do have to make repairs, it isn't too big of a deal, because you've already saved money for a very good piece of transportation. I have driven this on multiple 18-hour road trips and never had to worry about mechanical failures. It's also so plain and boring looking. I never have to ... (more)
Cons
The gauges for fuel/speed/oil, etc. are absolute crap. I've replaced them once and repaired them twice. Getting the dashboard out was a pain. I've just been living without knowing how fast I'm going or how much fuel I have for over five years. Not a huge deal because my red check gauges light comes on when the fuel gets too low. There is no tinting on the windows, so it gets hot as hell in the summers and everyone can look into your car. The dashboard is plastic and started cracking from the summer heat after about six years. It's barely hanging on today. The OEM headlights are extremely d... (more)

Overall, I have had a very positive experience with my car. I have had it for about three years now. It was used when I got it and not that expensive -- the cost was around $2,200 dollars. It is a bright yellow Chevy Cavalier and manual rather than automatic. The cup holders are the perfect size for the kind of water bottle I prefer, which is a bonus! I have had no major issues with the engine that have prevented me from driving the car, and other systems, such as the radio, also work great. It drives relatively smoothly. And it's very good on gas -- I don't normally have to spend much on gas each month. There are some downsides, because the car has been in use for several years now and is showing its age. The paint job has flaked off some but is mostly still attractive. The key has ha... (more)
Story
During a recent celebration, my mom, grandmother, and I went out to dinner with some friends and family at a local restaurant. Pulling out of the restaurant to the main road there's a hill. My mom was driving my car on this particular occasion. She can drive stick shift, but on this particular occasion, the hill was beating her. We ended up having to switch places by basically letting the car ... (more)
Pros
The trunk is quite spacious -- big enough . The paint job is overall attractive, and I like the color. I enjoy driving manual rather than automatic. The seats are cloth and quite comfortable and have very few tears considering their age.
Cons
The paint job is flaking off in some spots. And in one spot in particular, the car is rusted, because so much paint has fallen off and left the metal exposed. There is an imprint of a decal on the back windshield, though the decal itself was removed before I got the car. The key sometimes takes a few tries before it will turn and start the engine. The air conditioning is not very cool at all. The gas gauge doesn't work well.
