"Had car for couple years now had fair share of simple problems mostly electrical. Heading on 300k and still going. I believe I am owner number 4 on this one. It was headed for the scrap yard when I bought it due to unibody rotted off in 2 locations but couple hours of cutting and plating and she was back to good. I personally put 120k on car motor or transmission have never been apart. It's heading towards the end of its life, currently burning a quart of oil every 2 weeks. Also motor starting to develop lower end knock but should make it to 300k. If you find one for a good price buy one. Even with there little headaches there a good car."
Cons: "large cups get in the way of the AC unit and temp"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9
"This was my first car and i just bought my upgrade earlier today (Nissan 350z) but my Cavalier was absolutely perfect for me and for anyone for a first car. Ive had it since 07 and all ive done is fix the brakes, tires and oil. Its extremely reliable and havent had a single engine and transmission problem. Strongly recommend this over a Neon or Sunfire"
