For anyone who likes muscle cars, but
needs something with better economy and
is more affordable, this is the car for
you. It's full of torque. Get the
manual shift version! The exhaust
rumbles and the engine sounds great.
The cool-air-intake looks cool from
inside the vehicle. Mine has been
great, so far. Easy to work on. Great
economy for a V6. No rust. Torque-steer
is bad, so put good tires on it. ABS
is garbage. If you need to stop in the
snow, better shut the engine off(I'm
Performance and sound of engine. Also,
seats are a good blend between sporty
and plush. I've reached 40mpg on a
Clunky shifter. Crummy looking radio.
Replace calipers with non-Delco system.
Center console breaks. ABS system
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.
Reliability, comfort, insurance costs,
Not a fun car. Manual trans helps but
not much. Come out with a new platform
more than once every 20 years.
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
Love the exterior apperance,
cupholders, gas mileage & Economically
Improve: Cheap glovebox door, HEAVY
doors... and even better gas mileage
would be nice...but that's it!
