1998 Chevrolet Cavalier LS 4dr Sedan


Review

Just took 2 kids and a car-load of stuff on a 150 mile one-way trip; 74mph; and still got 35.8mpg! "Only" got 30mpg on the return, but that included 3 days of stop & go driving to work.


Favorite Features

Looks pretty good.


Suggested Improvements

Door sills starting to rust. Blower motor resistor out (again).

Review

I bought this car in 1997. I have had no problems with it what so ever. I has currently 159,000 miles on it. It is good in snow, and handles well. This is my 4th cavalier, as we go back to 1984 when I bought the wagon version. I wish they still made a wagon. Hubby and I have both owned one each. I am in the market for a new car, and I will give this one to the kids to drive. It will last a while longer.

Review

I bought this car used a little over 2 years ago & I am a lot happier than I thought I would be with it. It does great on the highway when you need to pass people. It gets ~30 mpg regularly. It does amazingly well in snow for a small car. And it does well in grass too. I would definitely recommend if you don't need a huge car.


Favorite Features

Cruise control, gas mileage, reliability.


Suggested Improvements

Make height of seats adjustable.

Review

I had two recalls. That is good in my book. This car is great on fuel and cheap to run. Overall it's a great car. Even at 270,000 km it's running great.


Favorite Features

The paint. The look overall


Suggested Improvements

A better seam on the bottom of the doors. A little rust starting
