Car Comparison of the Cavalier and Altima

After spending the winter looking for a car my mom and I could agree on, we finally narrowed it down to two options. One of these cars was a 2002 Nissan Altima and the other was a 2000 Chevrolet Cavalier. My mom had previously said that there was no way I could buy either of the two.

Also, the Altima is the replacement for the Sentra, which had a very large after market. As for the Classic Cavalier, it has had a big performance market since the late 1990‘s.  
One of the good things about the S is that it comes basically loaded. Leather seats, a CD changer, a Bose audio system, power windows, and power locks are in the vehicle without   adding a single option. The Altima is...
