Not what it's cracked up to be
By Scrubb on
1996 Chevrolet Cavalier 4dr Sedan
I purchased this car new. Immediately the interior trim started to rattle, which I can't stand. Soon after, the interior trim started to fall apart including the center armrest lid, seat trim and finally the seat itself. I found that the paint job chipped and scratched very easily. It didn't seem thick enough. The muffler began a strange and bothersome rattling at only 25k. The head gasket failed at about 50k and the water pump failed at about 55k.
Needs better paint job and interior built quality.
