1996 Chevrolet Cavalier LS 2.4
A high performance bargain with a poor dealer
The starter fault at 176000 Kilometers. I spent $20 to fix it.
The water pump fault broke at 180000 Kilometers. I spent $200 for a replacement.
I needed to change the whole exhaust line at 220000 Kilometers.
I need to change the brake pads every 20000 Kilometers.
At 240000 Kilometers I had to change the clutch. it was so expensive. Cost me about $800 for a replacement.
I needed to chanage the alternator at 260000 Kilometers. Cost me about $250 for replacement with a rebuilt one.
I had to change the front rotor at 320000 Kilometers. Cost me about $180 for a replacement with used rotor from the junkyard.
The Cavalier was the most enjoyable car I ever owned. I liked its performance so much. Although the dealer was so poor and the spare parts were so expensive, I liked the car so much. It really gives the feeling of a sports car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
