Ok, I have owned 2 cavaliers in my time. I started with a 1992 cav with a 2.2L engine in 1994 with only 28,000 on it. Ran it till sept of 2000 when the head gasket finally gave up the ghost. Worst part, car still ran as good as the day I bought it when the gasket gave way. All the coolant would spill out the front. Only reason I decided to purchase a new one rather than fix the old was because of rust in the doors. Finally milage at the time. 335,000 kilometers. Now, I have a 2000 with a 2.2L engine. Bought brand new in Sept of 2000. Currently still running great. Original exhaust, engine, alternator, a/c. 5 speed manual. Everything still works. less than $1200 in repairs in the last 9 years of owning it. Current milage. 346,000 Kilometers...and still ticking. Who can beat me?
