1999 Chevrolet Cavalier 2.2 from North America
Buyer beware, and do a lot of research before buying this car
I only owned this car just over a month before getting another car. The Cavalier did have a lot of miles on it and it was bound to have issues. Anyways, I was okay with that for the most part.
A few days after I got the car home, it started acting up. It would stall at intersections and the ETC light would come on. At first I thought it might just be a strange occurrence until the transmission started to shift hard and die. I have read many reviews, and I guess this is common and no one knows exactly why this happens for sure. Many people put a lot of money into the car, only to find out it wasn’t the problem.
I was already planning on selling the car, but when I read that there was a recall that had to do with fire and the gas tank, I knew it was time for it to go. At least Chevy did issue a recall. When I traded the car into the dealership, I did tell him about what was going on with the car.
In my honest opinion, I would not recommend this car unless you know how to fix cars, or you have some money to fix it up. This car also didn't get great safety ratings from what I remember.
To summarize, I was not expecting a perfect car at this many miles, but the safety stuff really scared me off.
The car was comfortable to drive.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
