1996 Chevrolet Cavalier Coupe 2dr Coupe


Review

This is the 2nd out of 3 Chevy's i've owned and once again, no problems. I bought it from a young HS girl and even after a beating it still drove beautifully. Gas mileage was awesome, around 30MPG and a very peppy fun car to drive. A few minor maintenance issues, brakes, new battery, ect...but that's to be expected with any car. The seats were not the most comfortable and the back seats were not accomodating to anyone. Had a few problems with sticky buttons, dials, and such but I think it was due to previous owner. Truck space was good. Would reccomend to anyone looking for an affordable, reliable, fuel effecient, and peppy car!

Review

This is a great car and very
reliable. I have
never had to have any major work or
any problems with anything
on the car. The car gets very good
gas mileage (25-30) and is quick
compared to other compacts.

Review

I bought this car with 53000 miles on
it and three years later its now at
118000 and was still going strong (some
bozo crashed into me and it got
totaled). It was extremely dependable
and the only issues i had with it were
normal things like an alternator,
brakes, battery, and a map sensor. It
got great milage (30mpg hwy) and was
peppy for a compact.


Best Features

sunroof was great. reliability and power options for everything. I drove the heck out the thing and it held up really well. wish it didn't get wrecked


Worst Features

the seatbelts were uncomfortable (which i believe they fixed the following year), the rear suspension was awful-if you hit a bump you would know it.

Review

I have to give it to Chevrolet, this
Cavalier has not one mechanical problem
since I have owned this vehicle. It is
the most reliable vehichle I have
owned. Comfort scale is low though.
Interior could fit the driver better.
Dependablity has put this car in a
class by itselt. Thanks Chevy
