1. My friend has a '89 Cavelier. The engine was dead several times on the road.
2. Last year I had a test drive of 94 Cavelier. Noisy. Not smooth on the highway. Not comfortable. I did not buy it though it was cheap.
3. Two years ago, a 97 Cavelier hit me at a cross. The 16-years old girl made an illegal left turn. The door was totally damaged. $7000 loss. My old Pontiac 6000 only got slightly loss.
