The Cavalier was a good value for the money. A very rugged and dependable car
The head gasket was seeping when I purchased the car.
The air bag light was on.
The brake rotors were badly warped.
The interior was shabby. The party never stopped with the previous owner.
Engine had the common 2.2L rattle. That was disconcerting due to the fact that my 91 2.2L Cavalier did not have it.
The car is nimble for a base model on 14" wheels.
The engine has plenty of power. There are no curses on hill and no anxious moment merging on the highway.
The base radio/tape deck has a good sound for the non-audiophile.
The Cavalier seats are great for short and long-distance hops.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
