Doubt that I will buy Chevy again
Shifting lever broke.
Pressure plate on the clutch snapped.
Developed oil, leak after 4 years.
The paint was pealing off the thing after a few months
I don't understand all the hub-hub with the Chevette.
I bought mine new in '84 and should never have done it.
A cast iron shifting lever breaks! Again Chevy trying to save a buck and bought from substandard suppliers. I thought that it could be a one time thing, so I replaced it. It happened again!
The paint was pealing off after a few months. I took it back to the Chevrolet dealer, they said that it was me that was abusing the car. It wasn't 6 months old. I wrote a letter to the district office in Los Angeles. They forced the dealer to repaint it. I got it back with no stripes that it had before, and no emblems that said Chevette.
Pressure plate on the clutch snapped with less than 25,000 miles. It didn't wear out, the rivets snapped.
Four years old and it developed a pretty bad oil leak. I had just been discharged from the Navy with a 2 year old child and a pregnant wife. Traded up to a Celebrity wagon.
That was like any other Chevy, rusted faster than the grass grows!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
