I was surprised how reliable this car
has been considering all the horror
stories I've heard about GM cars. Only
one major repair in the 7 years I've
owned it. The solenoid for the
transmission failed at 83,000. The car
was still driveable, but would get
stuck in overdrive on the highway.
Engine would then die upon
deceleration. Body and paint are still
looking like new. Would consider
another Cavalier if crash test
performance were better.
