The Chevy Cavalier is a super car to own. The interior materials are very durable, and with regular maintenance the interior looks in prime condition even after 14 years. I have 116,000 miles on the car and the engine and transmission have never given me any trouble. The mechanics who have done work on it always mention that it is still in good shape. I have never had any electronic problems with any of the components.
Story
I used my Cavalier to deliver papers every day for 5 years and it never let me down. I remember one winter we had 10 inches of snow to drive through. On my route was a steep hill with a winding road to the top. I saw a smaller car trying to go up the hill, but slid back down after getting halfway up. I decided to try. I got a running start at the bottom, and with the power of the car and a set... (more)
Pros
The best feature of the Chevy Cavalier is its durability - it has stood up to 14 Midwest winters and never let me down. The front wheel drive is exceptionally good in the snow, and even on ice the car is very manageable. After 14 years there is minimal rust. The Cavalier is very easy to maintain, even for a DIY owner. The components are easily removed and replaced. The frame and sub-frame are holding up well, neither have buckled, even after the occasional meeting with a curb. The interior is very roomy. After removing the front passenger seat and putting the back seat in the down position... (more)
Cons
The only thing that is a negative would be the placement of the oil filter. For something that is a regularly maintained component, the position of the filter behind the passenger front tire and behind the steering gear is difficult to get to.

I own a 2004 Chevy Cavalier with a little over 150,000 miles on it. I am extremely happy with the car overall. Since I live near the factory where Cavaliers were produced it is always easy to find parts and used parts are often available. It is also very easy to find a qualified mechanic. Parts and labor also tend to be very affordable on this car. The few repairs I've ad to make are all within what I consider normal maintenance on a used car- new brakes, tires, windshield wipers and the like. The only unexpected and expensive repair I've had to make was to replace the motors on the passenger side windows because the windows wouldn't roll up. The gas tank is on the small side but the car still gets decent gas mileage so I don't need to fill up too often. All in all it's a perfect car f... (more)
Story
The day I bought my Cavalier I drove it to work and ended up parking between two other Cavaliers in a row with three more Cavaliers in it. I laughed because Cavaliers are so common in my area and I knew it would be easy to find parts and service for mine.
Pros
It is an easy to drive car with low maintenance costs. It gets good gas mileage for an older car. Parts are easy to find and affordable when repairs are necessary.
Cons
I don't like that the main window controls are between the two front seats. I also don't like the location of the cigarette lighter/cell phone charger port. It's on the side of the passenger's side console and is not in an obvious or easy to use spot. I've owned the car for almost five years and I just found it last week.

When looking for a car they are knowledgeable and willing to cater to your preferences with a wide variety of cars. If it is not available in the lot they will have it transferred from another facility. They will sit down with you and review cars at other centers that are also available and cater as best as possible to your needs.

Very helpful salespeople when I was there. I know they have had some problems in the past, but they were fine for me. We were able to haggle in a friendly way as well as keep everything polite. They answered all my questions since I was only a high school senior. I have had my car now for 8 years.
