1997 Chevrolet Cavalier 2dr Coupe

Review

I bought the cavalier with a little under 60,000 miles from the dealer. I didn't have any major problems aside from the normal wear and tear of any car. I replaced the alternator once, which required a lot of force to re- attached the fan belt. The notoriously ineffective coolant system gave way about 85,000 miles and I had to spend over $1,000 to replace the head gasket due to a warped piston head from all the times the car overheated. It is very noisy at high speeds. Overall, it is a reliable car that you can depend on for everyday driving. It handles great and has sufficient leg room. This is a great first car for anyone who is young and learning

Favorite Features

Handling, windshield wiper speeds, leg room, exterior styling, cockpit comfort

Suggested Improvements

reduce engine noise, improve coolant system, heavy doors
