This was the greatest investment I have ever made. The 2004 model Chevrolet Cavalier is a great family car. Before the purchase of the four door sedan, we had a ninety eight model Cavalier. However it was a two door car, and with three kids that was a little cramped.
Not only is this a great family car, it is also a good ride for the kids. We don't have to listen to the kids in the backseat screaming " I don't have enough room " or " Quit kicking the seat " (my husband)! We drove this car to San Antonio, which is about a hundred and fifty miles from here, and only used a little over a quarter of a tank of gas. It gets good in city mileage and even better highway miles (as long as you aren't stuck in traffic on the interstate!).The Cavalier has a new sleek design, and is very pleasing to the eye. It is also a very popular car, there are three brand new ones on our block alone...and get this....all the same color too. There is only one thing that wasn't very appealing to my husband and I....there is no ashtray anywhere in the car. They seem to have replaced the ashtray slots with drink holders. In all there are five, yes I said five places in the car for drinks.
The 2004 Chevrolet Cavalier is very easy to handle. Around corners you have nice control. The thing I found is when you have to abruptly turn the wheel, it doesn't feel like you are going to lose control of the car. Although it is not recommended, sudden stops are also a breeze. About a week ago, my husband and I were driving down the road at about twenty mph, and this little bitty Yorkshire Terrier came trottin across the road in front of us. I of course screamed, not wanting to run the cute little puppy over, and my husband slammed on the brakes just in time. The poor dog never looked at us, and I said "Where are his parents" :) I am very thankful that we had a new car with good brakes!!!!
Even though The 2004 Chevrolet Cavalier is only a four cylinder automobile, it has some get up and go. If you need to pass someone, just give it a little gas, and you are off. Kinda makes you feel like you are driving a sports car!!! The trunk on this vehicle is fairly large, and it has an emergency escape button( I can't figure out if this is for dire needs, or for fools!!!) It also gives you the ability to fold the back seats down for more space.
Good job on the review. A few mro details couldn't hurt though. ...chris

I dont think this would fit on our driveway. Weve just traded in a Land Rover Freelander today for a Renault Scienic, the one that 'shakes its ass'. The French just have more style. Ps got an Aunt in Wichita (is that how you spell it) mark x
