Bought this car off of a friend for 500 bones as a beater car (I hate car loans! never again!) to get to work and back. Got the car at 230,000 miles, now have 245,000 and still runs like a champ! Starts funny, struts are messed up, but still runs great like the first day we signed the title over. I've owned a 2002 camry and got less value off of that than my little cavy. That Toyota was junk, go GM!
Just keeps going, and going, that's about all you can ask for and expect from this car.
Nothing, if you want something better, buy better. You can not expect much out of a cavalier. But surpassed my expectations on reliability like no other.
