1992 Chevrolet Cavalier Coupe RS 2dr Coupe


Review

I've had this car for 6 years. Of the
15 cars I've owned over 20 years, this
has been the most reliable, best
investment I ever made. I was
skeptical at first, but it has proven
itself. I bought it with 113K miles
and it now has 186K miles. I've had
very few, minor problems with it and
until this week, the A/C froze me out
on the hottest Florida days. Believe
the compressor is still good;
hopefully just a leak.


Best Features

Fun to drive with 5 speed. Every option, making it comfortable. Sporty styling.


Worst Features

Needs more power. With A/C on, it gets off the line fairly slowly. Power seats would be nice

Review

This car came with my wife. She loved it and
I hated this car with every fiber of my being.
It was uncomfortable, it couldn't get out of it's
own way, and felt like it would tip over at
every corner. The good thing is that there
weren't any options to break. It was pretty
reliable, except for the yearly recharge of the
freon, the replacement of the master
cylinder, and the alternator. For a GM
vehicle with almost 80k mi, I would say that
that wasn't bad. It still looked pretty good
when we sold it, but my father in law and I
are very good about keeping our cars up. I
wasn't surprised that the dealerships really
didn't want it as a trade in.


Best Features

well, I guess the paint, because it didn't flake off or fade and it got pretty good gas mileage, but that's about it.


Worst Features

better shocks, tires, brakes, transmission, engine, seats and any anti sway bars, ...but not much else

Review

I have owned 3 Cavaliers and my wife
has owned 2. The 92 that I'm currently
driving has been extremely reliable. I
needed a 2nd car and this one has been
great. My est. repair costs might have
been around $500 or less in the last 3
years. I drove the car to school in
Florida and got over 34 mpg with 2
other guys and luggage in the vehicle.
The car currently has 121K and still
runs strong.


Best Features

Reliability, fuel economy & smooth


Worst Features

Little more power, less plastic, & rear discs.

Review

Bought this car new in college in
1991. Have done almost all the
maintainance myself, mainly oil,
filters and brakes. Always use a good
synthetic oil and good filter. KN air
filter and always replaced parts with
ones that have lifetime warranty's.
Have replaced alternator, tensioner,
power steering pump, hoses, heater core
x 2, radiator, plugs and wires. The
thing just keeps running and with
223,000 miles on it, I could see it
easily going for another 100,000-
150,000. If you don't care to look
great going to work, it will get you
there just as good as a new vehicle.
Very easy to work on also.


Best Features

Low maintainance, good gas mileage and handles real well.


Worst Features

None for the price we bought it for and the low cost of maintainance.
