The Heavy Chevy!
By All-around Pleased on
Vehicle1997 Chevrolet Cavalier RS 2dr Coupe
ReviewThe Cavalier has been a really good car
for me and my family. It has a sporty
look, but is pretty easy on the
wallet. Gets great mileage (thanks to
the automatic transmission) and has
ample power for long time travel. Only
problems I've had, except for routine
maintenance, is head gasket replaced
around 80,000 miles, water pump
replaced at 81,000 miles, car main
computer down around 90,000 miles
(replaced with used one), and
alternator replaced around 95,000
miles. Sounds like a lot, but was very
reasonably priced to fix (especially if
you know some good "private"
mechanics). All in all, not much to
ask for a really hard ridden car.
Best FeaturesSporty look, plenty of get up and go in a stick, great mileage. Good trunk space. Nice stereo, but drive noise can hurt performance.
Worst FeaturesNot for big & tall people, or people w/babies (bending over in a 2D to put baby in is a pain in the back (literally). Chevy needs to make that engine block out of steel and not partially aluminum (which warps when it gets hot). Somewhat light weight and can hyrdroplane in water.
