1984 Chevrolet Cavalier Hatchback 2.0 from North America
A very modest, reliable car, it will never leave you stranded!
The only major thing that I ever had to replace in this car were shocks and struts.
Someone backed into my car when I first got it, and it took forever to find a new header panel for the car due to its age.
Normal maintenance was done such as windshield wipers, tires, oil changes, etc.
One thing I like about this car is that it has NEVER left me stranded.
This car loves to run, and will start up each and every time.
The front seats are very comfortable, but the back seats are cramped and not so comfortable.
This car handles like a dream, and is very easy to drive.
One complaint I have is that the 4-cylinder engine doesn't have too much power.
This car also had a problem with idling, it idled very roughly, but shifting into neutral solved the problem.
The car has a very good heater, but when I got it, the air conditioning did not work.
The radio also did not work very well, and one of the speakers did not work either.
If anyone is considering this car, I would encourage them to go with it. It truly is a great car.
It would also be an excellent first car, as it was my first car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I was given a 1984 type 10 coupe notch back with 202,802 miles and the only things I replaced in 3 yrs was the muffler, altenator, and had to hard wire the fan. When I traded it in August 2009 they gave me $500.00 for it. this car was not pretty but it ran great and never failed me. I bought another Cavalier, 2000 4 door. if you change the oil every 3000 miles they last a long time.
