With 129,600 miles on the clock my
little Cavy bit the dust. For 9 years
it was reliable and never stranded me
until the end. Valve spring broke in 3
places and bent and dropped the valve
into the #2cyl.-wrecking the piston.
The sound it made was about as horrific
as my desciption. $2500 new engine on
an $1100 car? Nope. I will miss it.
If only I had a garage & a junk car
engine, I would keep it.

Got mine new 10yrs ago. Until recently,
w/ 57000 miles onm it I have never had
any problems. Like others, my
alternator just recently had to be
replaced, but besides that it has been
minimal maintence problems. It's a true
value for the money.
Only now do I realize what GREAT gas
mileage I've been getting, esp compared
to cars now! (What happened!?) The '94
has a great, cute style, love my bright
blue color and is roomy, compared to
the newer Cavs.
The downside if you work on your cars
or have others do,gen maintenance (oil
changes...) is difficult to do on your
own w/ the way they have things
