It's a cheap survivor
By Canadian on


2000 Chevrolet Cavalier LS 4dr Sedan


This car was purchased in early 2003 with 76,000 kilometers and has been faithful year after year. The brutally cold winters have failed to prevent cold starts. I have kept all regular maintenance considering the less than stellar ratings tagging this car. I changed the auto transmission fluid at 110000 kilometers on Nov 2005. On Nov 2006, only 20,000 km later, the transmission began to grind, and shortly thereafter, died. This was a major disappointment, as the vehicle was always driven in a manner to prolong it's service life. Thankfully, I was able to find a used transmission with 69000 kilometers for a cheap (albeit unwelcome) $350.00 CAD.

Best Features

Faithful starts in extremely cold weather.

Worst Features

C'mon GM, is this the best you can do? Crack over dash near air vent. Cheap seats. Backpain inducing. Noisy fan that occasionally rattles. Service light / abs light comes on in humid or wet weather. Creaks, rattles, ticks, permeate this vehicle. Add tilt steering
