I bought this car new. I have put a
LOT of miles on it(158 000). I like
the way it looks, inside and out. We
have changed the head gasket twice,
replaced gas tank/lines and had many!
brake jobs. It's also had a really bad
problem with rust around the bottom of
the doors and on the hood (rusted
right through).It is near the end of
it's useful life now and I will
replace it soon. I'm not sure if I
will buy another Cavalier though.
Upkeep has been expensive, but it has
always started (even in the coldest
weather) and never left me stranded.
Air conditioning(really cold. Great
pick-up. Great in snow great. Decent
Stereo. Block heater
Front and rear windows are really
slanted and the sun just beats down on
you. Seat placement-too low. Poor
visibility, huge blindspots.
