Default The rental car

My stepdads Buick was hit in the side by some lady who wasn't paying attention in a parking lot. So while his car is in the body shop he'* got a 04 Cavalier rental car. I took it for a little spin today and was actually surprised by the pep the little 2.2L had in it. It won't set any records or keep up with my Bonne but it is faster then other 4 bangers I've driven.

That 2004 you had as a rental has the Ecotec. My 04 Cavy had one too. Fun little car and a good amount of torque.
