Review

I looked at a number of cars before buying my Cavalier 1996. Its price was great and condition pretty good. It drives very well. I had to replace the gas tank (got a used one for a good price and free labor). Overall a very good car.


Best Features

Favourite features: I like the overall design of the car, interior, the seats were rather hard so i padded them with a massaging cushion and seat covers. Now it feels very comfortable and both sexy and chic.


Worst Features

Sand rust spots, and paint and spray with rustcheck once or twice a year. Remember to spray all the body and tubes underneath the car. It will save you lots of stress, headache and money too.

Review

This car has been absolutely great for
me, I bought it in ’98 with 20K and now
it has over 160K. Thank God this car
has practically never given me trouble,
the only thing I remember changing was
the AC compressor.
The car doesn’t have great pick-up but
what can you expect from a 4-cyln, but
it flies I do 70-80 mph with no problem
and no shaking. Its starting to show
its age now, but I can't complain
considering how it has performed till
now.
I don't know if I was bless, cause I've
seen some pretty sh*tty reviews here
and on Consumer Reports, but I'm
extreamly happy with it.


Best Features

Sunroof is nice, but opens way too slow.


Worst Features

It was / is my first car, I don't like the present style, doesn't matter its discontinued

Review

I bought this car new and have been
very pleased with it. Love the 2.4L
engine. I am 5'9" and the driver's
seat is fine for me. Gas mileage is
about 21 mpg in town. I have looked
at the new Chevrolets and the seats
seem very hard and uncomfortable to
me. The maintenance on this car has
been very little. The main reason I
would not buy another is the seating
and they no longer offer the 2.4L
engine.


Best Features

2.4L engine - has a lot of get up and go for a small car


Worst Features

offer leather seating as an option

Review

bought this car about 5 years ago. it
had 60,000 miles on it. When I traded
it in for a larger vehicle it had a
whopping 122000 miles. the only things
I had to fix on the car were
maintenance items such as tires,
brakes, alignment, and muffler. I
really have nothing BAD to say about
the vehicle. I had to trade up to a
larger vehicle and had to say goodbye
to the cav.


Best Features

the get up and go with just a 4 cylinder, gas milage, and reliability


Worst Features

well this was a 1996 so chevy has made improvements. wouldnt be fair to list them without seeing a new cav.
