I bought my cavalier in 2004. It now has over 200,000 miles on it and it still drives like I just bought it! It is by far the best car I have ever owned. I would never buy any other kind of car . Go Chevy!
I've put 100,580 miles on this jewel and never had to think about it quitting. I drive a car hard and this one just keeps on goin'. New brakes once, new rear struts once. The 2.2 liter engine is more than I exspected. I'll cruise at 70-75 all day and just relax and listen to the radio.
Peppy engine runs smooth and will pass another car with not much effort.
More A/C vents for rear compartment, larger fuel tank.
I bought my 98 Cavalier brand new, in September of 1998. I have driven this car 124,000+ miles. It has taken me all over the east coast, with no issues. This car is very reliable. I have replaced, tires, brakes, and battery, and just had to get new rear struts 6 months ago. No other repairs have ever been needed other then an occasional factory recall. Right now I have Toyo tires on it, and it drives better then ever. The only complaint that I have is that my family has outgrown it, and I am now looking to buy something bigger.
Alloy wheels, power sun roof, 5-speed
The cup holders are not deep enough, and the drivers seat belt tightens up on occasion.
I have a 1998 Chevrolet cavalier rs,
which now have 90k. This car has been
the worst. My brakes went 3 times in a
year and a half, which didnt come
cheap. at 81,000 mile my gasket went,
at 89,000 my alternator went, now at
90k it in the shop because of its
transmission. After a while the trunk
wouldnt close so i had to get new lock
parts for it as well as the drivers
door. It seems like the car is in the
shop more than on the road. For a
student or a 1st time buyer this was
the worst car, in the future i would
stay away from american cars. My mom
have a Subaru Legacy Out., which have
well over 100k,the only expensive thing
she paid for was brakes.
Traction control (ABS)
seats,and interior design. the cavaler
is soon to be droped and replaced by a
car called the Cabalt in 2005
The best part about this car is the
maintenence costs. I've owned it since
new and have never had to spend
anything on repairs. I'm just now
starting to spend on normal items that
wear out (tires, brakes, etc.). The
only thing that has been replaced on it
is the stereo. The CD player quite
working while under warranty.
I really like the exterior styling,
especially after I added a rear
spoiler. I like the fact that the
passanger seat slides forward further
than most cars. I, also, like the lay-
out of the dash.
Needs a better stereo. Would like to
see the drivers seat slide forward like
the passanger seat. Nicer wheels would
be good, too.
