Right from the start there have been
problems with this car. The engine has
been remounted 3 times due to a design
defect that causes the engine to not fit
properly into the vehicle. This makes
the front end vibate constantly,
especially when idling. It is not
considered a safety problem by GM. But
it can cause other parts to fail or
break from the vibrations.
Also the coolant system has had constant
problems and many replacements. It is
now leaking due to a rotted head gasket.
Dealer repairs have been unsatisfactory.
I would not recommend this car or any
other GM vehicle to anyone.
The air conditioning is ok and I like
the power windows.
The cavalier is a dinosaur. They should
discontinue the model and design a whole
new low priced model.
