This Teo guy critcizes anyone who doesn't agree with him. Because a Cavalier in his books is beneath him. His liking is for Audi's and BMeers. On the Impala board all Teo talks about is his Chevrolet Impala how good GM and Chevrolet are and then comes to this board and slams everything about them. He's hard to understand. He posts over 200 times a week on the Impala board.(time to get a life!!) As Cavalier owners know the Cavalier was redesigned back in 1995. Upgrades have been made to the engine and and interior as well. It is a great economical car for the American public, who don't want to spend big bucks on transportation. I am sure the next generation will even be better.

Hey Charts bitter eh? What is your freaking problem?
You are a silly, ill mannered poster that complaints left and right about his Impala because the DIC is 18% off...oh my gawd!!
...and expects GM to buy it back, LOL.
The one that clearly needs to get a life and some very needed manners is YOU.

The Cavalier is an outdated embarrasement of vehicle. GM knows it very well. 20+ years on the same J-body platform is enough. Hopefully Lutz will speed up the Delta platform to replace this relic.
The Cavalier is an embarrasement for GM as an automaker.

The Cavalier is one of the only ways alot of people get into an affordable new car though, especially alot of young people. Almost everyone I have known had a Cavalier at one time or another. So if they can keep prices down while increasing refinement and most other traits, that would be cool.

I'd get a Hyundai Elantra or a stripped Focus before I'd get a Cavalier if I had to go for the lowest cost. Really, if I was going lowest cost, I'd get a used car.

I hear ya. But GM is getting slammed in the press and the buying public alike by not offering a worthy small car competitor. The Cavalier can satisfy the needs of budget minded customers, but it doesn't mean they have to put up with an ancient platform (Yes the car was *updated* in 1995 but that's old already and the platform is the same 1981 issue) and lousy safety scores.
Toyota and Honda have proved over the last 20 years that a budget priced vehicle can offer superior quality, technology and safety.
GM can do it too.

We have a 2000 cavalier in our household. We ARE NOT embarrased by it! How could we be? We get the best fuel economy, a car that is cheap, reliable, and we have plenty left over to spend on the house. It is a little dated but it WORKS! calling it an embarrasement is silly.

Tell that to the automotive press. Instead of calling the Cavalier an embarrasement, make them call it an incredible automotive milestone...pleease!

Cavalier is outdated, no doubt. That said, our leased 99 has been very reliable and has a surprisingly smooth drive train. In terms of value, it's hard to beat.
I do however think a replacement is way overdue and Lutz should make it a priority.
