"I bought this Cavalier (used) after Hurricane Katrina. A/C worked great until 2015. One transmission change. Annual repair for last five years about 800 dollars. Same instrument cluster problem as every other Cavalier."

Cavaliers are very reliable!!!!!!

"Most Cavaliers you get often need work unless you buy one brand new at a dealership. I have had a Cavalier since I turned 16 I am now 20 and still have a cavalier all you have to do just like anything other car is make sure you do the necessities such as, Change the oil & sparkplugs when needed! I absolutely love my cavalier it is defiantly a reliable car and perfect for someone to start off in because most parts aren't that expensive and they will run forever! Also it doesn't take much to fill it up with gas! so that is a plus!!!"

very nice performing economy car.

"This was my first car and it is incredibly reliable. Driving through western new york weather did take a toll on it rust wise but let me tell you, it still plowed right through the snow for 4 years. The gas mileage is wonderful. Over all, it is very small and low to the ground but being a smaller person it fit me well."

"Loved this car!! Bought it 3 years old with 43,000 km's and fully loaded. I've had it for 14 years but it is now 17 years old and time to say good-bye. I'm hard pressed to get a new one b/c this one was very reliable and never left me stranded on the road. Wish they still made the Chev Cavalier Z24!"

"I got this vehicle when I first graduated college. I didn't have much money at the time and had just landed a job with a commuting distance of over an hour away going in either direction. This vehicle stood the test of time and took that commute in stride through extreme heat and snow for a solid 8 years with no problems whatsoever (I used to live in the high desert). My experience with this vehicle was so solid that I ended up buying a new Chevy Cavalier this year. :)"
