1997 Chevrolet Cavalier 4dr Sedan


I bought this car when it came off a 1- yr lease and had 11,000 miles on it. Over the years have replaced alternator, gasket and thermostat (2x) Did basic oil changes, new tires. Now at 182,000 and the darned thing won't die. Currently getting 33mpg. Drives great, I feel safe in it, and it can plow through the deep snow of a Minnesota winter. Sometimes I'm the only one who makes it to work. Great little car.

Best Features

Has a lot of cargo room. With the back seats down, the trunk will hold 3 filing cabinets plus boxes.

Worst Features

Drivers seat gets uncomfortable at about 6 hours of driving.
