Well worth the money
If you drive your car responsibly as I have, the only problems you'll encounter are basic maintenance such as oil changes, tires, etc...
Depending on where you live, if you leave your car out in the heat, the dash will crack as expected.
For a stock Cavalier, it's quick being able to manage a 16.00 1/4 mile pass. Yes, if you drive it right it's very capable of that. Again if you drive it right, you'll beat most cars on the street, and you can say "yeah, it's stock."
It doesn't take much to have a fast Cavalier. Just a few simple bolt-ons and you can have a low to mid 15 second car. Strap on a turbo or supercharger and you'll put yourself in the 13's.
The Cavalier is said to get 28 mpg, well I can easily get 34 mpg. Just drive conservatively people!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
