I have been happy with this car. There have not been any major problem inherent with it, just some minor things. For a 10 year old vehicle, it still performs rather well, getting 24-28 mpg around town and not exhibiting any problems on road trips.

One of my favorite cars. I owned one in '96 and regretted getting rid of it. When I saw this one, I had to buy it. Also very safe and reliable. We were just in an accident. A Ford F250 ran a stop sign and hit us. It totaled my Cavalier, but we were all alive

I love this car, yeah it may be a Cavalier but I think it's a great car. The car is fun to drive, drives well, and is great on gas. It's easy to get in and out of, the seats move easily and its more spacious then i thought it might have been. I honeslty enjoy this car more then the others I have had, so overall I believe it's a great car for a 21 year college girl!

Fuel pump-August, 2002; $800.
TRANSMISSION-January, 2003; $2300. Head
Gasket-Febraury, 2003; $500. Total
mileage of this car is only 68,000.
This is, without a doubt, the absolute
worst car that I have ever owned. The
above list is only a small sample of
the problems with this car. Many
problems similar to other reviews
(motor mounts, shoddy interior, etc).

I bought my car in the summer of 1999.
With the exception of a couple of
recalls, and a new ignition coil, I
have had no problems with this car. I
wouldn't recommend getting a white top,
as it is impossible to get it clean.
Other than that, I love it and I love
the dealership I bought it from.

I just wanted to say that I am having the same problems others are having. Transmission out, electronic fuel sending system (Controlls fuel guage) replaced 2 times, waterpump, heater core, wheel berings, window motors. GM sold these with the new Dex Cool engine coolant. Around 1999 they discovered this was breaking down and causing internal engine rust. I'd trade in before 70k.
The 2.3-liter Quad 4 is replaced after just one year by a 2.4-liter twin-cam engine. Four-speed automatic transmission includes traction control. Daytime running lights debut, remote keyless entry is optional on LS and Z24 and base models get new interior fabrics and an Appearance Package.
