Pet free cloth interior. No accidents.

I love my car! For it is age it has a lot of pickup and go.

It is great on performance even with the ecotec engine it has a gas mileage of 19 -20 miles per gallon. I have never had a problem starting it even in the coldest of temperatures. I find the cavalier to be quite comfortable however because I am a short person I do need to sit on a foam pillow mine does not have the ability to raise the seat. It does have power window and door locks that can be used with the key fob that also opens the trunk. How ever it does cost a lot for repairs.

Los angeles cavalier conundrum.

My 2002 Chevy cavalier is very worn in. It is old and it runs like it. The air conditioner is broken. I have paid to have it fixed once, only to have it break 2 weeks later. So now I just brave the la heat. The wheels are squeaky and the upholstery was hand stitched back together by my grandma. It is not reliable. Every time I turn it on I wonder if it will start. It is not comfortable. And it only have manual locks and windows.
