Disappointed in the car's reliability.
By NYC Geezer on
2001 Chevrolet Cavalier LS 4dr Sedan (2.2L 4cyl 4A)
I bought the car new in 2001 and still have it. Its initial appeal was all the standard features for the price compared to other small cars where almost every desired feature was an expensive option. Although I maintained the car very well to this day, it had its share of rattles & clunking noises from the day I first drove it. Fortunately, I bought an extended warranty when my 3 year/36000 mile new car warranty expired, because the car needed some very expensive mechanical repair work after the Chevy warranty expired. As a retiree on a fixed budget, I can't afford expensive repairs or a new car every several years, so I'm thankful this car lasted till now, but no more GM compact cars for me!
Power doors, locks, windows. Very smooth-shifting uto transmission, large trunk, split rear seats.
Body fit, rattles eliminated, front suspension, hood insulation,
