2002 Chevrolet Cavalier Base 2.2 from North America
Chevy will build my next car too
Oxygen sensor @ 68,000; repaired under warranty.
The car has been everything I could have hoped for.
Other than the oxygen sensor, it has never had a wrench on it.
I had plugs, wires and automatic transmission filter/fluid replaced @ 120,000.
Everything works, but the AC/heater won't blow only out of the dash vents; probably leaves.
I still get 33 highway, 26 city.
Better seats, better ride, quieter, much better mileage than her 1998 Accord (V6) whose paint seems to be evaporating. The Accord will scoot though.
I even bought my son a used 2002 in 2007 for college, and his has been trouble free (he tore up 4 or 5 used imports before this car, so everyone has been surprised).
Let me add that it's 92% domestic content also.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Your Cavalier was built in Mexico and IMPORTED to the USA. I love the Cavalier, as I too have one, but to claim it has better seats than an Accord is outrageous. The Honda Accords are built in the USA, while the Cavalier/Sunfires were built in Mexico, so I seriously doubt your Cavalier has 92% domestic content.
Also, you claim your Cavalier never had a wrench on it. When the oil was changed, did you unscrew the engine bolt with your fingers?
