Bad Chevy
By Usedtolikechevys on


1996 Chevrolet Cavalier LS 4dr Sedan


Bought this car still under factory warrenty. Immediately the lifters started knocking, interior rattled, muffler began making an obnoxious rattle. Right after Chevy sent a notice that the head gaskets were defective the engine blew up. Next engine has had nothing but problems - emissions and drivability. 2 dealers and 1 independant shop cannot figure it out.

Best Features

When I think of one I'll let you know. There is a reason it is consistantly on Consumer Reports list of cars to avoid.

Worst Features

Scap the antiquated j-body. Send TSB's to owners of vehicles. Dealerships obviously ignore TSB's and try to get you to pay many thousands of dollars in repairs on a guess and parts swap scheme.
