What Our Members Are Saying about the Personal Experiences of the Chevrolet Cavalier

Chevrolet Cavalier Personal Experiences: Pros
2002 4dr Sedan 115-horsepower 2.2L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
We bought this car because I had such a good experience with my 1999 cavalier; retired with 267,000 miles on it with very little problems. When looking for another used car we specifically looked for a cavalier. full 2002 Chevrolet Cavalier review
