Time chain went $650
Fuel regulator $350
Head gaskets $800 (I only had the car 6
months and miles were just over the
warranty in '99 - I have no speeding
4 recalls in the time I've owned the
vechile. DON'T BUY THIS CAR YOU WILL
GO BROKE FIXING IT!!!
I purchased this car right out of High
School.I din't know what I was doing.
This was all I could afford. The only
smart thing I did was buy the extended
warranty. If I hadn't I would of spent
$3000 on fixing it. Gas mileage sucks.
I had the rear main seal go, head cover
gasket, leak in the fuel injectors, o2
sensor, alternator, oil pump, oil pump
sensor, only thing that is still
working great is the a/c and coolant
system. I can't wait to finish paying
it off in Aug 2003. This was my
second cavalier and it had nothing but
the constantly over heating. I'm
talking, going to work and
find your coolant broke inside your
car, leaking everywhere.
I'm 16 and this is my first car. When I first got my car a year ago I loved it to death and never had a problem out of it. But then this month everything has gone wrong with it. It started to overheat continuously and so I pulled over to check the coolant and there was none in it, so I added some. Then the next day it overheated again and there wasn't any coolant in it. So I drove it back home and tried to turn it off but the engine wouldn't stop running. We unplugged the battery and that didn't work so we messed wtih the alternator and it finally quit running. Then I had to have it towed in because it wouldn't start. Then I found out that the coolant was going into the engine so now it will cost $1000
