1997 Chevrolet Cavalier LS 2.2L from North America
A great car and great price
My brake pads went out at 50000 miles.
It needed tuned up at 65000 miles, new spark plugs and wires.
My window washer fluid pump went out at 75000 miles.
The ignition switch was recalled by chevy, never had a problem to begin with.
The back struts had to be replaced at 80000 miles.
The car has been the best car I've ever owned. It is a great car for just about anything.
It gets great gas mileage, you can travel about 350 miles on a tank of gas.
It looks great and handles very well.
The back seat is very small, but the front seats have plenty of room.
I would recommend it to anyone.
Chevy makes a great car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

In reference to 1997 Chevrolet Cavalier. I think it is a car put together in a hurry with "used parts". My reason? Since I've had it, (2yrs), bought it used. I understand there is regular maintenance on a vehicle, but these things gone wrong on my car are not regular maintenance. Both headlight bulbs replaced and still don't work on drivers side. Maybe high/low beam switch, so I'm told. Timing chain replaced, waterpump replaced, two fuel injectors @ $200.00+ a pop replaced, two front door jamb switches replaced and interior light stays on after car is turned off???, rear struts and strut mounts replaced, head gasket replaced, alternator replaced. My point is I've had older cars with these kind of things never ever had to be replaced. They just don't make vehicles like they used to. I've always been a GM man, but my next purchase will be an IMPORT!!!
Any comments for me?
