Remember the price
By Big Jim on


1997 Chevrolet Cavalier 2dr Coupe


Good run-about. Dependable but lots of
little problems developed after the
warrenty expired like broken plastic
components (AC knob, driver seat base
molding, seat belt cover), specific
lines on rear window defroster, and
lowest fan level on AC doesn't work.
For a car among the cheapest that GM
makes and having 80000 miles, it has
been a good but not great car. It
seems like GM is always having recalls
on this car (#3 by last count) which
means that I am being inconvenienced
for a day each time. I would consider
buying another, but I would do a lot of
shopping around for other cars in the
same price range first.

Best Features

Fuel efficiency, price, sporty looking, and longevity of original tires.

Worst Features

Improve the quality of the components in the car. The plastic is crap! I take great care of the car, but the smallest bump seems to break off yet another component. Also, place the door guards in a position where they will actually protect the car from other car doors.
