1995 Chevrolet Cavalier LS 2.2L from North America
Worth every penny, and it's not many
Starter is misaligned, but still works fine; just takes one or two turns of the key.
Dash is noisy, rattling around.
Both rear hubs have been replaced and ball joints in the front.
E-brake is broken.
Brakes are done regularly, but I put 100,000 km on it in a year.
One of the most reliable cars on the road, this thing has never left me stranded and given some proper maintenance, it will go forever!
A 4 cylinder domestic engine with near 400,000km is unheard of. I am here to prove that this thing is going forever.
The previous owner did a head gasket, but that was driver error, in that he overheated it after blowing a water pump (check the temp gauge smart guy).
If I was recommending a commuter car or second vehicle, this would be it. I will drive this car anywhere; no trip is too far.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

It seems that these cars work better as they get older. I've found that people who bought the car before 2000 hated it, and people that bought the car afterwards loved it. Very interesting. Personally, I bought the car in 2005 and love it so far... except for the head gasket repair.
