1998 Chevrolet Cavalier LS 4dr Sedan


Could be a great compact to get really, really cheap because it depreciates like crazy. Find 1) an LS, big improvements over STD, 2) an upgraded engine. I have the better engine, and it makes the car much better to drive, accelerate, etc. Makes the Neon & Corolla feel like a Big Wheel in comparison. I find it pretty comfortable, but some people don't. Tires were good in the winter, haven't had to replace. A few of these cars were lemons (read other reviews) so be sure to get maintenance records from the seller. Up to 40K, I've only replaced the brakes. But you could get a pretty solid car with this one. My car is only worth $5K, that's a steal.

Best Features

Upgraded, peppy engine. Everyone who drives the car is impressed with it. Upgrade features like cruise control & CD player are nice. Rear folding seat, big trunk.

Worst Features

Fugly seat fabric, door locks freeze sometimes. One problem with the sensors made the car stall, resolved itself.
