I bought my Cavalier used with 57,000
miles on it. I had to replace the
pulley on the a/c and the rear strut
mount right away.
I noticed it started leaking oil
around 110,000 miles. I replaced the
head gasket one weekend around 115,000
miles. There is rust on the bottom of
the front and rear door on the
Had to replace the spark packs at
135,000 miles. There is a low humming
noise when I turn left. I have
138,000 miles on it and that 2.2 still
runs strong. No oil burning.
Other than the above mentioned, the
car always starts. For the money it
is a good car and I would buy another.
Exterior looks, good gas mileage.
A pain to change the spark plug wires,
improve design for rusting.
