the car is a Beast
By beebopboo on
2005 Chevrolet Cavalier 2dr Coupe (2.2L 4cyl 5M)
i couldnt have asked for a better first car, the cavelier gets a crappy rap but its really a decent, reliable car. mine has just gotten over the 100,000 mile mark and it hasent given me any problems. just like any car if you treat it right and take good care of it youll get the maximum preformance. so all you people who talk down on the cavelier, maybe its not the car at all maybe its just the way you run it..
i really like how easy it is to clean and how nice the interior looks, very sharp looking.
i bought this care in 2008 with 125000 miles on it, never had any issues with it but i had the breaks fixed, and the fuel injector, and also the master gasket (i think that is what it is, it was cheap) and that was all, i spent major fixing of around 500 in the past 5 years. 2 days ago exactly 1,992 miles over the 200000 mile mark, it died totally died.. It has been the most reliable car I HAVE ever owned. I took care of it,
(to neuman i wish it would last for proper maintenance cause i did give it care all the time while i had it). Unfortunatly because of the price to get it fixed, and the value of the cars now i am getting another car, but if anything else would have died, i would have kept it.. its a good car.
I agree! These cars get so much crap. I have 136k on mine, runs perfect! The only two big problems I have had with it were instrument cluster went out around 75k and Fuel pump at 122k. Other than that with proper maintenance it will run forever!
