Not the most comfortable driving.

Not a bad car for the money.

Two Thumbs Up, for sure!!


The brakes have been replaced twice. The alternator went at 100,000 miles. The cadillac converter went at 110,000 miles.

General Comments:

This a great car for college students and younger adults. I would by another one. I found that the price to maintain this car was very inexpensive. For a couple thousand dollars, you can't beat it!!

1995 Chevrolet Cavalier from North America


A cheap car with lots of costly maintenance!


I have owned my 1995 Cavalier (or Cadavalier, as I like to call it) less than 2 years. It has had its moments, though, mostly bad ones. I have put a lot of money into it, and should have done the carfax.com facts before I purchased the vehicle. Although it has not been in any major accidents, it has been owned by 5 other people! It was even used as a “Government Taxi” at one point. I have replaced the water pump, alternator, muffler, brakes, tires, etc. etc.!!

I received notification about an ignition switch recall. When I took it in for this service, the dealer informed us the head gasket appeared to be leaking. He had to have known about the ‘service issue’ that GM had out on this car, that I found out about by reviewing web sites like this. A few months later, the gasket blew. Luckily it didn’t crack the head, but cost nearly 800.00 to fix. Then, 4 days later, it sputtered out and died. Come to find out, the gas gauge is broken, and it is out of gas! It sat ‘dead’ for 2 months and I had no clue that the gauge was broken! Now my transmission doesn’t want to go into 3rd as easily as it should.

General Comments:

I am very frustrated over this car even though I always trusted GM. However, when I talked to them, they refused to do anything for me - I was over the mileage and the age of the car was 3 months past the deadline as well. I also own a rusty Mercury Cougar which has been a much better car; it has gotten me to and from work all winter so far, and it is paid for! Don't think I will buy another Chevy.

You shouldn't blame GM for your car's problems. You bought a fleet vehicle with 5 previous owners, your lucky it lasted as long as it did. Don't blame GM for your lack of foresight and judgment, fleet cars are driven hard and are given the bare minimum maintenance. Next time you buy a car, do a little research before you hand over the cash.

A great car for a cheap price


The only things that have gone wrong in my car are all of the little plastic pieces have broken off, eg:On each side of the seat's, and the seat belt holders and on the top of the seat belt.

And also my friend hit a pole with it and it just crumpled so fast when he told me he said that he didn't even hit the pole hard, but with as much damage that as was done to my car ither he was lying to me and hit it really hard or they are just really cheaply made.

General Comments:

I think that Cavalier's are a really good car mine is kind of a piece, but I still love it. And it was only 7,000 and it looks good and I have never had any problems with it.
