The Heavy Chevy!

Vehicle1997 Chevrolet Cavalier RS 2dr Coupe
ReviewThe Cavalier has been a really good car for me and my family. It has a sporty look, but is pretty easy on the wallet. Gets great mileage (thanks to the automatic transmission) and has ample power for long time travel. Only problems I've had, except for routine maintenance, is head gasket replaced around 80,000 miles, water pump replaced at 81,000 miles, car main computer down around 90,000 miles (replaced with used one), and alternator replaced around 95,000 miles. Sounds like a lot, but was very reasonably priced to fix (especially if you know some good "private" mechanics). All in all, not much to ask for a really hard ridden car.
Best FeaturesSporty look, plenty of get up and go in a stick, great mileage. Good trunk space. Nice stereo, but drive noise can hurt performance.
Worst FeaturesNot for big & tall people, or people w/babies (bending over in a 2D to put baby in is a pain in the back (literally). Chevy needs to make that engine block out of steel and not partially aluminum (which warps when it gets hot). Somewhat light weight and can hyrdroplane in water.
