The Worst Car I ever owned

The car's pulleys would fly off. My alternator,starter,coil and random sensors would quit working. Once you change motors the check engine light will stay on until you pay dealerships 180 to clear it and add the motor's serial number. The lights in the back would blow once a month. The fuses would blow once a week. I wouldn't trust this car with anyone I love and care about. It's ridiculous. Also I hit a small bump and the gas tank started leaking. After that happened the parts on both the front tires went bad one by one. Ball joints,tie rod ends,and axles. One A frame needed replaced on the passenger's side. Sometimes the ABS brakes worked and sometimes not. What a nightmare! If you are thinking of buying a 4 door regular model Chevy Cavalier don't do it. They are the money pit.


Has to be my favorite car and Ive had many

Bought this car for $650 from its third owner, absolutely love it! It’s a coupe. Other than stupid little stuff it needs a new converter and one 02 sensor. Parts are cheap and plentiful, great in gas, comfy, looks great, fun and pleasant to drive always. Doesn’t skip a beat. Couldn’t ask for a better little car!


Fun, Peppy smaller car

Convertible top is very easily operated and boot is very easy and good looking. Pick up is good, both lower and higher end. Great in city traffic. Great gas mileage.
