Crappy. stay away, very far away from this car!
I would like to start by saying that although it looks cute and sporty on the outside, please don't be deceived. I bought this car used and instantly noticed it falling apart. I referred to the car as my "Crapalier" rather than the Cavalier. I had to replace the head gasket at about 110k and the previous owner had to replace it as well!!! The overdrive transmission went out and I got stuck in a very scary intersection two times before we knew what the problem was. The doors were cracked when I got it. overall it was a poopy car and I would NOT recommend a cavalier to anyone. it cost me entirely too much to maintain for the short time that I had it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
