1996 Chevrolet Cavalier 2dr Coupe

Review

I bought my cavalier with 110k miles on it in 2001, I have 140k on it now and have been pretty happy with it. The water pump seems to go on these between 105k and 115k, so watch out for that. Backseat's kinda small, hard to get things in and out of. I replaced the transmission at about 130k, which was a pain. Still has some pickup despite the mileage, but the 4-speed automatics are a bit punchier. The paint job on it has held up really well, it still looks fairly new. Overall, it's a nice little flashy, pretty dependable car. I'd get another newer one.

Favorite Features

Great on gas, i still get a good 30 mpg on the highway. Still has some pickup. The body still looks nice. Front end and handling is still in real good shape, and the folding back seats are nice for big things in the trunk.

Suggested Improvements

Waterpump (let go at 120k). Transmission (let go at 130k). Gas guage (if it's on 1/4, it's empty, was like that when i bought it).
