1997 Chevrolet Cavalier 4dr Sedan


I really like my chevy the design is basic enough that you can change out parts easy. Plus all the parts are pretty cheap, the coolant system absolutely suxs. However, if that's all you have to worry about I suppose that's okay. Many people buy cavalier's because they are cheap if you get the base model. You'll be surprised what these things will endure. My went through a flood with no issues, if you keep up to date on the coolant system if will work in many different heats and colds. Mine is a 2.2 liter which sure beats a 1.9 or a 2.0 only thing is I wish the car where a little bit bigger in the front for easy access to parts other than that a good cheap car!

Best Features

Basic design that is reliable and the used prices on these cars are pretty good!

Worst Features

Bigger engine 2.4 would be pretty ideal, also a standard coolant system dex cool doesn't cut it!
