I bought it used in 2001 with 100,000 miles on it, and it now has 155,000. I know the motor was rebuilt before I bought it. I've replaced the brake pads 3 or 4 times, new rotors, starter went out, new headgasket, window motors replaced twice, trunk leaks, door leaks, replaced the battery, speakers are shot...I could go on with the list repairs I've had done in 4 years. Not to mention it's rusting everywhere! What do you expect for an 11 year old Cavalier though? It's pretty reliable though and it was decent to me for 4 years but I'm sick of putting money into it that I could put into car payments for a newer car.
Just the right size for me, handles well, automatic door locks when shifting out of park.
Cup holders are in an awkward place, backseat is tiny, cheap black plastic bumpers, more cushioning in front seats, headlights need to be replaced constantly, and everything listed in my review.
