My Chevy cavalier is very reliable and will always get you where you need to go.

This vehicle is very reliable. It currently has over 200 thousand miles and still runs like a champ. As long as you take care of your vehicle, it will go a long ways. The features my car currently has is the basics. Hand crank windows, CD player and cruise control. The color of my vehicle is tan, and the under body is in great condition. I would recommend a cavalier to anyone. Chevy is a great car company and they do a great job with their cars.

I would like to say I like the fact that I do not have to worry about the lights,

Since purchasing my car I have no major problems. I know many drivers have different ways of driving which impact the car life. I am a modern driver. It has been a reliability to my and the performance has not disappointed me. I have had tune ups and regular check ups each year which might be one reason for the length of time I have had it without major problems. I believe if you take care of your car on a regular basis it will take you far.

Blue, 2003 Chevy cavalier, very reliable, and easy to repair.

Battery went bad really fast, as well as the alternator, but I bought it used and those are the only issues I have had with it. It is been very reliable. I would recommend it as a first car for anyone on a budget. Nothing too fancy but as I said, very reliable and easy to drive. Good mileage. I have had it for 7 years now and it is the best car I have owned. The interior is very simple, and for lack of a better word 'user friendly'.
