"I drove my 2002 Chevy Cavalier off the dealer’s lot with just three miles on it. Eleven years later, she is just now starting to show signs of wear and tear, although the exterior has been sporting rust for the last five. If I could, I would drop the money for repairs to keep this car going because it has been a champ, but the $1000+ fixes are probably better spent on a down payment for a new ride. That said, this car needs major work (for the first time ever), and yet it still hasn’t left me stranded when I am out and about. I will be sorry to see it go."
"I loved my 2000 Cavalier, it is still running with 250K and still gets 36 miles to the gallon. I put the first 5 miles on the car test driving it and it has been good to me though the 16 years I have owned it. It lived in a CITY for a very short amount of time."
