Great Car, had some problems, but its OK
By GloryHorn on


1998 Chevrolet Cavalier 4dr Sedan


Well, this would be my first car that I
ever bought for myself. It runs great
and as long as you do some INTELLIGENT
maintainence, you won't have any
problems like other people have with
this type of car. Right now, the only
problems I have popping up is the
tension arm on the serpentine belt is
making noise and the seals on top of
the engine are oozing oil. But
they're easily fixed. People need to
have some sense about cars if they're
going to buy one. If you don't know
anything about cars, you shouldn't own

Best Features

Great pickup on acceleration, the reason I bought it instead of an $8k car that had no accel. when I put the gas to the floor to merge into fast traffic on the freeway. The dash is big and flat. Good place to put stuff if you're stopping to eat on the road.

Worst Features

Oil filter EXACTLY over the exhaust pipe?! Every time I change the oil, it causes such an odor. The engine compartment needs a bit more space for working in. Had to struggle to get the radiator fan out when the motor burnt out.
