Reliable, but made for a very specific height range.

I love how reliable it is, I've never had a major problem with it, so long as I keep up with the regular maintenance. I dislike that you can't move the seat any closer to the steering wheel. I am only 5ft tall, so this is a problem. It's a problem I have in a lot of cars, but with my car being so small, you would expect it to be better made for people on my height. Also, there's not enough leg room for me. Once I have the seat close enough, my non-driving leg can't be bent, because there's not enough room between the steering wheel & the floor of the car.

That is completely paid off and it gets me from point a to point b rather well. The gas mileage is pretty good.

About the only good thing about my car is it has pretty good gas mileage. It seems like it is cheaply made and put together the dashboard and trim anything's it's basically plastic as he that are falling off cracked super easily. The passenger side seat belt locks and tightens up for no reason and just gets Tighter and Tighter until you unclick it take it all the way off and then put it back on. Lastly the paint job is horrible the paint has peeled off and chipped away and now just looks like trash.

Cavalier 2001 review ugly but reliable and good on gas.

This vehicle is not very pretty or stylish. The cars looks overall is off putting to me. This particular car is very slow, its definitely no hot rod. The seats are ugly. I have noticed that all the door handles fall off this particular year of car. The car is really comfortable for its size. Seems to be great on gas and very reliable. My overall review is its a safe, cheap, great on gas, ugly, slow car.
