1997 Chevrolet Cavalier 2dr Coupe

Review

Good run-about. Dependable but lots of little problems developed after the warrenty expired like broken plastic components (AC knob, driver seat base molding, seat belt cover), specific lines on rear window defroster, and lowest fan level on AC doesn't work. For a car among the cheapest that GM makes and having 80000 miles, it has been a good but not great car. It seems like GM is always having recalls on this car (#3 by last count) which means that I am being inconvenienced for a day each time. I would consider buying another, but I would do a lot of shopping around for other cars in the same price range first.

Favorite Features

Fuel efficiency, price, sporty looking, and longevity of original tires.

Suggested Improvements

Improve the quality of the components in the car. The plastic is crap! I take great care of the car, but the smallest bump seems to break off yet another component. Also, place the door guards in a position where they will actually protect the car from other car doors.
