For a car to from point A to B, this car has been great. Twenty years old and still running awesome. I have 95k on it and picked it up 4 years ago with 54k. Its cheap to buy parts for and runs forever. This is my second Cavalier and a true fan. Look around, you still see old Cavaliers everywhere. Thats tells a story on the quality these little cars are known for.
Cheap to buy replacement parts.
None. If I wanted a nicer car, I would purchase a more expensive car.
I also own a 1990 cavalier. It's an 2.2 automatic 3 speed . It's been through hell but still runs. Right now I have to see if the head or head gasket is broke/cracked. There good motors, just can't get them hot
