General Comments:

The most reliable car I have ever owned. I wanted to buy a Lumina, but my wife wanted the Cavalier. So for her birthday I bought her the Cavalier. I love the smooth ride, but the Cavalier is not so comfortable as the Lumina is. Personally, I prefer Citroen cars (I own a Citroen ZX too; it is much more comfortable than the Cavalier).

Overall, it is a strongly built, good handling car. Acceleration is very fast. It can carry you anywhere.

Good on fuel consumption: in the city it does 1L/8.5KM, and highway 1L/12KM.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
