I bought my '91 Cavalier-VL in 1991 and regretfully traded it in 2002 for something with less mileage. It had over 186000 miles on it when I traded it. It ran like a champ. Total repair costs for the 11 yrs I had it was probably not over $1000 I bet if even that much. Absolutely the best car I have ever had and wish to this day (in 2009)I still had it.
Just plain fun! Handled like a champ in snow-never once fishtailed. Handled great on any road. And it felt safe.
Center console came loose on driver's side after about 8 years.
