I have a 2000 Chevy Cavalier, and I just started having a problem with it recently. I love my car and I don't want to get rid of it, but it's costing me money. I will be driving down the road and it will shut off. At first, I'll be able to start it up again, but the longer I drive it the the longer I have to wait to start it back up. I took it in, and they told me I had to fix the map sensor, cam sensor, and the crank sensor. They fixed that and it still has the same problem. I took the car back in and they said there was nothing they could find wrong with it and even test drove it, and there were no problems. I picked it up and about a mile down the road, the car did the same thing. I don't know if I'm going crazy or not, but I know there is still a problem with it. I need help and I need it fast. Any suggestions would be great. I love my car, but right now I don't think it loves me back. Help, please.

I have a '02 Cavalier and bought it new. I had to replace the slave cylinder after about 20,000 miles. I replaced the oxygen sensor right after the warranty ran out. My air conditioning "purs" like there is something loose. I had to have my hood painted, and I wax my car twice a year. I was very fortunate to take the advice of a mechanic when I changed my rotors the first time to buy lifetime warranty rotors. My car has 112k miles on it and I am on my 7th pair of rotors. I do live in the mountains though. I do regular maintenance and feel I take great care of my car. Now I have to fix my reverse lights, they have stopped working. They did not stop suddenly though. They would occasionally not work until they just stopped working at all. I am pretty sure I will try a different brand the next time I buy a car. I will say my car gets great gas mileage and goes really great in the snow.

I've had my 2000 Chevy Cavalier Z24 for almost 8 years now, and haven't had a single problem with it! I love my car! I think a lot of people on here are just jumping on the bandwagon, using small insignificant problems, to try and add to the list, just so it seems like the car is terrible! Like I said, 8 years not a single problem, and runs like a beast :D.
