I have had nothing but problems with this car. The water pump went out, the head gasket is currently leaking so I have to keep putting coolant in ($10 per bottle adds up!), continuously having to replace the brakes every year, electrical problems. I have stalled three times because of this crappy car. It's rusting beneath the gas cap. Overheats all the time. I can't even put the AC on or it'll overheat. Do not buy this car. It's a money pit. I'm getting a new car in two weeks because I cannot take it anymore. I absolutely dread going into this car every time I drive it. You don't know what's going to happen next! You fix one thing and another thing breaks!

Bought a '95 Cavalier to replace what I thought was an ailing car I should've kept. In the 7 months I've owned the car it's had mechanical problems 6 times. First day I got it found out something was wrong with the transmission which would make it freeze up and not switch gears when it warmed up. The water pump busted and I went through 4 jugs of antifreeze before it could get fixed, transmission started to go, car would max out at 50, back door popped right open one day around a turn, and just recently it would take a city block to get it to 30mph and the whole exhaust system nearly touches the ground while the converter looks ready to blow.

Well I bought the car in 1999 and it
had around 50,000 miles on it. Around a
month or two later the A/C compressor
started grinding and was covered by
warranty. Next after it was payed for
the head gasket blew which was around
$700.00 to fix which was a bargain
considering the work. I still own the
car that is the extent of the work that
has been done on the car besides
regular maintenance. Well last month i
had my A/c recharged at that time the
whole system was checked for any leaks
and it was approved. Over all i'm
satisfied with this car now it has just
peaked at 100,000 miles and still
