1998 Chevrolet Cavalier LS 4dr Sedan


My wife had this car when we got married. We've had to do some motor work (2.4 ltr.), but it has 197,000 miles. What gets me are the comments from mechanics when I take it in. Every mechanic that sees it says, "Oh great!" and tries to pawn it off on one of the other mechanics to work on. They tell me the motor's a pain to work on and was known for overheating. I drive it 150 miles a day bare minimum. Still getting 28 miles to the gallon. Very uncomfortable. Best fix for the road and motor noise is a louder stereo. Was going to trade it in for a different car but nobody wanted it.

Best Features

Fuel mileage, traction control. Still big enough for my daughter's car seat, and ABS.

Worst Features

Too late. I have a feeling this was an allright car in 98.
