The Green Hornet will never die

2000 Chevrolet Cavalier Base

The car is old, it has a lot of cosmetic issues. Other than that it still runs decent. It doesn't do well idling when it's hot. It's been pretty reliable for the most part. It sounds like it may have a bad wheel bearing. After seventy miles per hour it shakes feeling like it might fall apart if I go too fast. As far as comfort goes it has no heater or AC, so I tend to drive it from spring to fall and don't during the long winter. Also the trunk doesn't open, I am really not concerned on how it looks. There aren't many features, I had the radio and speakers replaced that's about all, and all of the repairs it needed

Great on gas, easy to maintain, comfortable and reliable. Great everyday car.

2000 Chevrolet Cavalier Base

It's simple style makes it easy to operate the controls. Windshield wipers, turning signal even the radio. The seats are comfortable both front and back. Its reliable and easy to maintain. It's easy to work on and I often do my own mechanical maintenance, from changing oil, replacing spark plugs and even replacing the belt. The trunk is spacious with easy to access spare tire. Not a big fan of two door but it fits my needs regardless. The sunroof and electric windows are a plus. I have owned a couple cavaliers and they are in my opinion one of my favorite cars.

Cracked dashboard but smooth drive

2000 Chevrolet Cavalier Base

The dashboard has cracked off from sun damage, all the dashboard plastic has cracked off and continues to crack easily and the air conditioner broke quickly. I don't like the interior and have to had a lot of work done on it but it is fairly reliable and drives nicely. It is not too crowded for a two door and the drive is smooth for an older car.

Great car, has a couple issues. But nothing a mechanic can't fix!

2000 Chevrolet Cavalier Base

I love my car. But all Chevys have problems with break lines. My break lines went out twice. The AC did go out but that's expected of an older car, that's what windows are for! The heat still works and it works great. I recommend this car as a first car for being drivers. Just make sure you get the breaks checked out first! It's a great car!

- Erin M

My car is a cheap and reliable car as long as it's taken care of.

2000 Chevrolet Cavalier Base

My car works good as any car that is over 18 years old would be. It doesn't break down with the occasional maintenance that its given. It drives well and is trustworthy. It also has great windows so you can see in all directions. The interior is good minus the years of neglect the previous owner. This is my first car and it's truly reliable.

- Pacey R

Reliable but not the prettiest.

2000 Chevrolet Cavalier Base

This car is really reliable. It had over 200,000 miles on it and have had minimal issues. I had to replace the water pump a few years ago, and the dash is cracked in places, but overall it's a great car. It could use a paint job and a new dashboard, but it runs well so I am not as concerned about how it looks.

- Rebecca G

19 years old and still running

2000 Chevrolet Cavalier Base

The car has 95000 miles with no troubles I put 1600 to freshen her up a few years ago and ever since had no problems. New brakes oil change trans fluid replace cheap gaskets and spark plugs. The body is still in great condition. I got new tires battery nothing major is wrong and its 19 years old

- Anton P

Red Bandit- simple everyday hard working car

2000 Chevrolet Cavalier Base

We have had almost no trouble with this car. We bought it as a used vehicle and drive it all the time. Needed maintenance includes, brakes, starter, filters, water pump. There is no electrical in this car. Tires when needed. All of what you would expect in a car as old as it is. Still runs great.

- Aaron E

Compact hoopie with some guts

2000 Chevrolet Cavalier Base

It's got a lifter knocking. Its burns through oil and transmission fluid like crazy. The suspension is shot. Its gets good gas mileage and starts every time. Its has enough room in the back and trunk to accommodate two people. Parts are fairly easy to find and it's simple enough to fix

- William H

This car runs very cheap on gas which is a big plus nowadays

2000 Chevrolet Cavalier Base

I bought this car new in 2000. Has been the best car I have ever owned.I have had in shop once for an oil leak. The rest of the time it has been in for oil changes and new tires and two. Batteries I can tell you if I ever decide to buy another car it will be a Chevy cavalier.

- Suzan K

Would buy another cavalier in the future, and upgrade with a sunroof.

2000 Chevrolet Cavalier Base

I just replaced the brakes, they lasted a long time. I enjoy the manual transmission, I have more control. The only thing I am finding frustrating is the lack of visibility around the crossovers, can be difficult to judge where other cars might be. It is fun to drive.

- Mary M

My mom gave me the Chevy cavalier.

2000 Chevrolet Cavalier Base

My car is reliable. It only has had one owner before me. My mom. She took very good care of it. It's clean. It runs good. The engine is strong. My blinkers are temperamental. Sometimes they work and sometimes they don't. But the car is almost 20 years old.

- Jennifer B

Used to be Cavalier fan now not so sure

2000 Chevrolet Cavalier Base

I bought this vehicle used at first it didn't have many issues, but it didn't take long for that to change. Started to have problems with engine, plugs, pumps, timing chain many different sensors, windows and doors, cars computer board to name a few
