I have owned my '01 Cavalier for three years.
It had 65,000 miles on it when I purchased it.
Now I have around 95,500 miles, with absolutely no problems!
Still running on original battery!
Replaced brakes at 70,000 miles and still have 1/2 pads left.
My only complaint is that the dash cracks something crazy.
It had one big crack in the center, which I covered with a stuffed animal, but now there are 6+ cracks on the dash.
Chevy says it's "common" for this car.
My previous car was a '97 Cavalier LS Sedan, that car was great until it hit 165,000 miles, then everything started to go. Hopefully I can get this one up to that!

I bought this car almost 2 years ago, it had about 82K on it. Now I'm at about 112K. The head gasket was broken when I bought it but I got that fixed at the dealer. 3 months later, my alternator broke, but that didn't take much! And I have had a few brake problems, but I love the drive and I got in a car accident a few days ago and nothing was severely ruined! Only my radiator and headlight, and small bend on the hood. Although I have metal bumpers, definitely don't get the plastic ones because that's what saved my car! There was a fuel pump problem, but that I only happened when I ran out of gas completely. Sounds like a lot, but I did go to the junk yard to get to parts so it was cheap!
1999 we took possession of a new 2000 Chevrolet Cavalier, expecting a reliable car, but instead we have been getting the privilege of having our vehicle serviced an average of once every 2 to 3 weeks...
