Good Runner Very Reliable. — Great car when new. Very mechanically sound. Fuel mileage is great on highway good in city. Very responsive and handles nice. Car always starts no matter the outside temp. Car never left me stranded until the 190,000 mile mark. At 200,000 now and still running.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Good daily driver. Good fuel mileage (30ish). Very dependable.

Cons: Very prone to rust. Undercarriage very prone to rust. Steering wheel not exactly centered on drivers seat.

Good For Somone That Has Time To Time And Wanting To Modify It And Keep It Running... — Despite the year of the car the Performance was amazing never had a mins problem @ all with it.. It was built actually pretty good for a chevy. I liked the Appearance of it looked very sporty inside and out. The sound system was very good for a chevy and for the year... Gas mileage was pretty even though the motor was 2.4 L v6 definately alot of power to plower thru anything. Definately used to love this car to bad the motor didnt last even after the 2nd one... but then I get one that had somewhat high kms but i didnt drive all over Ontario with it...

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It was very sporty and fun to drive

Cons: they didnt make the newer years of this cavaliers just as strong

The Car Is Gone Don't Have It Anymore — the car was very old and rusted and basicly falling apart, the air didn't work and we had to rig up a toggle switch for the windshield wipers so they only had one speed. not a very reliable car at all.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: mpg

Cons: rusted, old, a lot wrong with it

1990 Cavalier — I've only seen a handful of wagons on the road, but none quite similar. Metallic Gun-Metal Grey riding on 16' ROH_InternationaL rims. Tinted windows, black cloth interior, with a system to cover up the poor performance. The suspension is poor, due to it still being stock. the previous owner blew the head gasket, so i rebuild the motor. i did not choose to rebuild the bottom end of the motor, which i regret due to the fact that it now burns oil from poor piston ring quality.

Pros: great fuel-economy

Cons: not a racecar
