Big Problems and Hefty Bills
By midnyte_sun on


1996 Chevrolet Cavalier Z24 2dr Coupe


I've had this car since 1998 and it ran
fine for the first year and a half.
Then it started having all kinds of
problems. At 85,000 miles I've had
these problems: Electronic Modulator
busted, water pump busted, engine
constantly overheats, a/c, vent,
heating only works at max, catalytic
converter busted, oxygen sensors
malfunctioned, and I get horrible gas
mileage : 275 miles on a full tank.
(I'll be nice and won't even include
new tires, shocks, struts, brakes,
etc). Total repairs: $7,000+

Best Features

Very nice looking car. 16-inch tires, 5-star rims, sport suspension, ground effects and sleek spoiler give this car a very sexy look.

Worst Features

This car needs to have better reliability and more durable parts.
