Still running strong...
By mrmcderm on
1997 Chevrolet Cavalier 2dr Coupe
I have had this car almost 6 years,
and have put 85k on it (mostly
highway) and it still runs well. I
had A LOT of problems with the coolant
system when it was new (1 year old).
Was in the shop 7+ times in 3 mos.
Eventually filed and won a lemon law
suit against GM. Since then, no
problems. Seats are falling apart
(moldings and adjustments) and has a
lot of dings...i just hope it keeps
Fuel mileage, seat support, trunk
room, manual trans (this car would be
an absolute dog w/o a 5 speed)
Higher grade plastics in the cabin, 4
wheel disk brakes, thicker sheetmetal
for the exterior panels.
