1990 Chevrolet Cavalier 2dr Coupe
Great little car, bought for my father
when he was commuting 600-700 miles a
week for less than $1000 from local GM
dealer. Only work needed was a new
battery and a new starter (althouth
replacing just the solenoid probably
would have fixed it as well). Love the
styling on it, comfortable seats, good
gas mileage (25 mpg or so in town, 30+
on the highway). Always as dependable as
any car I've had (although my old Datsun
210 wagon was pretty good too), with
terrific ground clearance (a big help
for getting through the snow where I
live). Solid machine I'd recommend to
anyone needing good, cheap transportation!
Easy engine to work on though it hasn't
required much of any work, ground
clearance better than many SUVs,
all-around nice balance and solid feel.
The interior light that stays on until
you've started the car is handy, too.
Nothing I can think of, but it's a
little late to suggest improvements for
a car made in 1990, isn't it?
