1998 Chevrolet Cavalier RS 2dr Coupe

Review

The exterior and interior design looks about 10 years behind every other compact car. The brakes, manual transmission, acceleration and steering all feel cheap, rough and weak. All 4 brakes went at 35,000 km and had to be replaced when I started feeling a warp when braking. I hit a ground hog while driving and that resulted in a $650 replacement of my radiator. When the car idled it idled rough and I was told by the service techs that there was nothing wrong with the car. The vents that aim the air popped out place now and again. The odd time ( 3 times) I'd hear a horrible racket in my vents, and out would pop a dried up whirly bird helicopter from a tree.

Favorite Features

Cheap.

Suggested Improvements

Too many to name. The biggest thing they could do is improve the safety performance of the car. The safety ratings by both the NHTSA and IIHS is terribly low. If Honda can make a safe compact vehicle, then so can the worlds largest auto-builder.
