Great car, moves like a racing car.

I haven't had many problem with the car including its 18 years old, and has over 200, 000 miles. It picks up speed fast and the engine as a hole is well put together. Some of the problems we have has was the fan stopped work and the gear shift wires went and had to be rewired but was simple task, nothing serious has occur thankfully.

It gets about 32 miles to the gallon.

It gets great gas mileage, no major problems with the car itself. Seems to rust. Easily. It has a great acceleration. It is a very comfortable, small car. It is very reliable. Downfall is it does not have power windows or locks. Have had problems with the door locks breaking and not being able to open them.

Economical comfort in the Chevy cavalier.

The 2000 Chevy cavalier is a wonderful, reliable vehicle. It has excellent gas mileage. The interior features power windows and seating. The cavalier is small but can still fit 4 people comfortably or 6 people total. My husband commutes and finds the cavalier very comfortable.

- Emily H

Chevy cavalier downfalls.

Can find parts easily but not durable. Dangerous when switching lanes because of really big blind spot created in part by the car’s design. Timing belt needs to be replaced a lot. Ac does not last at all. Fixed the whole system and then it only for a year.

- Lee K

They should know that it has good gas mileage.

I like the fact that it is smaller and I can get into parking spaces easy. I also like that I have good visibility. It is decent on gas and has lasted a long time without needing too many repairs. I do not like that it is a 2 door car with a small trunk.

- beth L

Chevy Cavaliers are reliable as Hondas

My vehicle is a reliable car. The engine is said to be made by Toyota. The car has really good fuel efficiency and is really reliable. Almost no problems with it other than interior is very brittle

- Carlos G

It cannot be driven on the freeway.

It is really old and had a lot of scratches plus it has the axel broken and it makes a weird and loud noise when it is driven. The car is red and is missing two rims but the tires are all new.

- yaritza M

Dependable car but unfortunately lacking working A.C.

I like my car for the dependability and easy maintenance. There are minor issues with my car, like no a.c. and the radio is in bad condition. But overall, it is a good car and very dependable.

- Casey B

It still runs and gets to where I need to go, and we have to make it last as long as we can.

It's about as basic as it gets: 4-cylinder, no power anything, extremely basic, and only has two doors. I dislike it because it's not ideal for getting around in with a child.

- David K

Have never had any major problem with it. It's been good on gas and always dependable

It's a sporty car that I just love. There is nothing I dislike about it. Fell in love with the car as soon as I saw it and had no question as to whether to buy it or not.

- barbara h

- kelli t

My vehicle was purchased in a pinch years ago and is high mileage. Now, years later, I have added over 60,000 miles to it and have no end in sight. It is a small car, and I would prefer a larger vehicle in the future.

This cavalier is excellent at getting you from point to point at an economical price.

it is old but a good car and a dependable car. it was made by a good company

I bought it new and have driven it for over 18 years and it has been a good car


It was from JD Byrider, and it was sold to someone with a poor credit rating deliberately because of its desperately short remaining lifespan

It's old, busted, and too many "mechanics" have hurt more than they've helped
