A small but sporty car that makes you look twice. by Proud owner of a Chevy Cavalier on 02/18/2010. Trim: 1997 Chevrolet Cavalier Coupe, Owned more than 10 years.
Pros: I own a Gold Metallic coupe. I love the color, styling and handling of this car. It's PERFECT for city driving. It's extremely easy to park. I love the daytime running lamps. I wish more cars had daytime Running lamps because they are such a neccessity in city traffic. The seats are comfortable. I added a spoiler on the back with a LED light so it looks even more incredible. I love the 16" tires which are rare to find on a small car. I love how the entire backseat folds down. I was in an accident in this car. A large Peneske truck side swipped me at an intersection. The only thing that kept the truck from landing on my lap, was the side collision bar in my door. This car saved my life.
Cons: There's no CD player...I had one custom installed. It's not easy to get in and out of the back seat. I'm not crazy about the gray "graphite" cloth that is used on the interior. It didn't come with alloy wheels. It has a net in the back trunk to hold groceries, but it never seems to work right. The blinker is part of the red brake light so it's hard for other cars to spot it...it's easier to spot an orange turn signal. The seats, locks, windows, and headlights are all manual. The steering is pretty tight so it doesn't give you the feel of a "nice" car. But the sporty styling and user friendly controls pretty much make up for any other annoyances with certain features.
Overall review: My overall experience with this car has not included frustration or disappointment. If anything it's an exciting driving experience just because of the handling and the incredible sportiness that any other small car would have a very difficult time pulling off. It's really not meant for 6 hr long road trips. It's an economical car that will give you reliability and basic safety and basic accessory functions that will last you for quite a while. It's definitely not a family car. It's more for a single, fun outgoing young person who wants something really good looking and sporty yet safe and reliable to get around in. I just love the daytime running lamps!!
