Chevrolet Cavalier Summary

The Chevrolet Cavalier is a small, stylish car that is best suited for those on a budget. Available as a coupe (two-door), sedan (four-door), convertible and station wagon, you should have no trouble finding a body type that fits your needs. Production of the Chevrolet Cavalier in western markets ended in 2005, so it can be somewhat difficult to get hold of and tricky to maintain. That said, if the vehicle has been well-maintained by its previous owner, the low price point could make it a smart buy.
