Chevrolet Cavalier LS Sport 17 Year Review

The Chevrolet Cavalier LS Sport is very edgy especially since I have added red and black seat covers and a steering wheel cover that makes the car look even more edgier. For an older car, it runs great for the most part. The only problem I consistently have involves the low coolant levels. I have had a ton of work done to the car under the hood since buying it- not because it needed the work done but because I have also driven the car across the country from New Jersey to California. Cosmetically, the car doesn't handle the sun well. There was a lot of paint chipping on the exterior and the dashboard cracked on the interior from the intense sun and heat. I bought a dashboard cover and got the entire car repainted so you cannot tell has bad it was before.

- Maya H

There's a lot of little things wrong with it, but the main issue is there's a leak in the coolant system so the engine overheats.

My car was purchased for $500 back in Minneapolis because I needed a car for my move to Portland, Oregon. I bought it after only a brief test drive because it was so fun to drive, figured it was worth a $500 gamble. It was a blast to drive across the mountains of Montana and got me to my new home without costing a lot in fuel. I really grew attached to her over the 1500 mile, 25 driving hour, 4 day journey and now after the long drive to the promised land her old rusty bones are having trouble keeping cool and alas I must retire her soon to the giant scrapyard in the sky. I'll be eternally grateful to the brief but impactful time we had together. Thanks for the memories.

Great, dependable vehicle!

My cavalier has been really good. I got it second hand when it had less than 3000 miles on it. The gas mileage has been great--though recently it has not been quite as good (it also has almost 150, 000 miles on it now). It is very comfortable. There have been some big repairs I have had to have done, but nothing out of the ordinary for a car it is age. My particular car does not have any of the newer type amenities. . . It does not even have automatic windows or cruise control. . . I wish I had the later! But all in all it is been a great car. Oh, I did have to get it painted a while back. . . We are in AZ and it got an "Arizona suntan".

Summarizing Chevy cavalier.

I gets me to work and back everyday and around town. But with old cars comes some problems. I had to spend quite a few hundreds in the car for it to be where it is at today. And it is still has got a few problems. At one point if I let go of the wheel the car would jerk really bad to the left I think and thank goodness my husband knows how to work on cars. He went to the junkyard and replaced the frame. Now when I start it, it is starting go half way and not want to start I have to retry a couple times for it to fully rev and start. Filling up the gas tank is a lot compared to my Chevy prizm.

The Reliable 2002 Chevy Cavalier

The only problem that I have with my vehicle is that it is rusting underneath, it's a little scary knowing my engine cradle is rusting. My Cavalier has excellent gas mileage; it takes about $25 to fill up my tank and I only have to fill it up once a week/every two weeks depending on how much I drive in that time. I have about 95,000 miles on my car and have had very little to no issues, it's super reliable. The seats are cloth and relatively comfortable. The available features in my car are slim, the only feature I can think of is that the radio also has a CD player.

- Mark C

I love my car! For it is age it has a lot of pickup and go.

It is great on performance even with the ecotec engine it has a gas mileage of 19 -20 miles per gallon. I have never had a problem starting it even in the coldest of temperatures. I find the cavalier to be quite comfortable however because I am a short person I do need to sit on a foam pillow mine does not have the ability to raise the seat. It does have power window and door locks that can be used with the key fob that also opens the trunk. How ever it does cost a lot for repairs.

Los angeles cavalier conundrum.

My 2002 Chevy cavalier is very worn in. It is old and it runs like it. The air conditioner is broken. I have paid to have it fixed once, only to have it break 2 weeks later. So now I just brave the la heat. The wheels are squeaky and the upholstery was hand stitched back together by my grandma. It is not reliable. Every time I turn it on I wonder if it will start. It is not comfortable. And it only have manual locks and windows.

- Vanessa F

That it is 17 years old and still runs great.

My car is a 2002 Chevy cavalier with lots of door dings on it. But. . . It only has 72, 000 miles on it. I used to live in Wisconsin, where they salt the roads in the winter. Over the last few years I have had to replace muffler and tailpipe because they were so rusty from the salt, but the car is reliable. It turns over right away when I start it, and it still runs great. Of course, I have had the oil changed every 3-4 months.

- John A

The car runs real good. There are no major problems with the car. A minor problem that I do have is the cruise control. When it is on and I change lanes using my blinker the cruise control quits.

I like the vehicle because I have had very little trouble with it. What I hate is the paint is peeling off of it. The car gets good mileage and and only has 71,000 miles on it. The battery lasted ten years which is good for a car battery. I've only had to chance the spark plugs once. And I've only had to change the brake pads once. I think that is good for a car this old. I have not had to have expensive repairs on the car.

- Connie R

My car and my issues with it.

It is great on gas mileage. It runs great as well, but I am having a lot of issues in the front end. Specifically a roaring sound in the left wheel and pulls to the left. I have changed brakes replaced brake lines. I checked sway bars and the stabilizer bar but everything looks fine. Going to try a wheel bearing next although the wheel does not shake or show any other signs it is worth a try.

- Cory M


It is small and compact, yet has a decent amount of space with a front and back seating. It is a pretty reliable car I have had it for 2-3 years now and have only needed to bring it to the shop twice for breaks issues and for getting a new muffler put on. In total have only spent around 700-800 in repairs on this vehicle so far. KEEP IN MIND THIS IS A 2002 SO I'D SAY THAT'S PRETTY GOOD!!

- Nicole O

It is a 2002 Chevy cavalier with a messed up front end.

It is a 2002 Chevy cavalier 2 door coupe. It was in an accident last summer. It was hit in the left front corner. The owner bought it back from the salvage yard for $100. So I could work on putting it back together. I did what I. Could with a come along a chain and 2 trees. I was able to get it back close enough to where it is driveable and I have been driving it for about a year.

- Jim J

In bad shape but it keeps up with other cars on the highway.

I have a lot of problems with my car. I need new brakes, new tires, possibly a new transmission soon. It still runs pretty okay and can keep up with other cars on the highway. My seats are pretty comfortable, then again I do have seat covers on mine so that may change how it feels inside. My paint on my car is slowly coming off on the hood so it needs a new paint job as well.

- Ryan W

Great and convenient investment!

Decent vehicle, older model but very safe. I bought it five years ago, used at a low cost. It is very efficient and I have put one hundred thousand miles on it so far. I would recommend it to someone without kids because of the size of the vehicle. My car is white and reflects heat which is also a plus in the hot summers. The comfort of the car is phenomenal.

- Mary J

My 16 year old car still runs very well and I use it almost every day.

My car is 16 years old. I bought it brand new. It has been very dependable for the most part. Have just had to fix normal wear and tear items over the years like the air conditioner, brakes, radiator, battery, etc. It is a 2 door, so the back seat is kind of small and hard to get into. It has always run very well and I still drive it almost every day.

- Jill D

Cons of having a Chevrolet cavalier.

There's a weird noise when I turn my wheel, it eats my gas, when I am on the interstate the steering wheel starts enabling, my car starts going side to side. My rims are bent on it. Living in West Virginia it does not help that my car is very low to the ground. It is only a two door car which I do not like. But it does have a sunroof so that is nice.

- Sierra G

small, blue, and cozy. This is wonderful for my size, doesn't have back doors.

The car does not have instantly working air, must wait 10 minutes for it to start working. It has rust stains all over the car that is way too hard to fix. Other than that the car is small, great for my size. The car is comfortable to drive, small enough to get into tiny spaces and can fit anywhere. It doesn't take up much room which is wonderful.

- Joe T

Chevrolet does not disappoint.

My 2002 Chevrolet cavalier is extremely reliable. I have had my vehicle for seven years without any problems other than my air conditioning inside my car not working. Even though my vehicle is old, it has shown me that Chevrolet is an extremely reliable and inexpensive brand. It has taken me far and wide with very low miles and not much gas.

- Alia S

Two door blue Chevy cavalier.

My car is nothing special but it gets you where you need to go. I've had it for three years. I got it when I was in high school and now I am in college and still driving it. I have had a lot of thermostat and radiator issues this year with it. Not very comfortable and very small so it is not a family car or a car to travel with friends.

- Caitlin K

The Chevy Cavalier is a great car that lasts a long time when taken care of properly and has great gas mileage.

I love that my car is a manual transmission because it allows me to get better gas mileage. My car may be old, but it has been reliable since I got it four years ago and has had minimal upkeep in those four years. I think my only complaint is that they no longer make the cavalier because I would love to own another one when mine dies.

- Kali V

It is a 2 door coupe that looks like it has been in an accident.

It is not much on performance, but it has been very reliable. It is a 2 door coupe auto. It was bought new by. My father in law and he drove it until 2017 when he got into an accident with it. I put it back together as well as possible and I am driving it now. Other than having to replace a few major components it is doing well.

- Jim S

Cavaliers, the good, the bad, the ugly.

The car is great on gas, a decent amount of space for being just a small little thing. Seat is comfortable and my back row of seats pull down allowing me full access to my trunk. Bad is it has slow pick up being as it is a four cylinder and I have had some minor repairs on my radiator, fuel tank pressure sensor and brakes.

- Julia T

Chevy is probably one of the best vehicles you can purchase!

I bought my car in 2004, I have had it for 15 years! But like any car things get old and need parts replaced. The most demanding thing I've had to replace was the gas tank and that was from a rock puncturing it. I have replaced water pump. Tires... Ect , just normal maintenance. I think Chevy makes good sturdy vehicles!

- Hayley A

Great gas mileage! I recommend a similar Chevy.

I love my car. No serious problems with it. The only repairs I have had is the ac compressor and that now has a lifetime warranty. If it was still in production it would be my next car. The paint didn't hold up too well so it does not look too good but it runs great. I'll buy another Chevy with the same engine next time.

- Jane T

The perfect starter car!!

The car does run great, although it has accumulated quite a bit of rust, the trunk's latch being one of the parts that has rusted, leaving it constantly slightly ajar and unable to open properly, and the battery recently died, pretty quickly and easily at that, it has a good speaker system, and it gets good gas mileage.

- Cassie W

Good car which was made much better than newer cars.

I have had few issues with my car, it is easy on gas, it requires little maintenance for the tear it is. It is well made. There is a lot of room in it for a small car, it is a good car for driving to work. I bought the car used and it was in excellent condition. I would recommend it but they do not make them anymore.

- Brenda K

Great gas saver great for the highway.

My trunk does not close. It drives well and is good on gas. The windows on the right side are halfway down. The windows do not work at all. The car is great on the highway. It is also a great gas saver. I think it is dependable. It is reliable. I can fit my 3 children in the back. My air conditioner does not work.

- John H

My car is sixteen years old but has only 70, 000 original miles on it.

My car is 16 years old but I have only put 70, 000 miles on it. It is pretty dinged up from car doors but starts right up every time. I moved to Oregon from Wisconsin, where salt is used on the roads in winter. I have had to replace the muffler and tail pipe because of the rust, which is not unexpected. Good car.

- John A

This is my 2nd Chevy and I have loved both of them! A 2000 Malibu and now this 2002 Cavalier. When I can afford to purchase a new or newer car, it will be a Chevy!

I bought one with just the basics, so it does not have electric windows and locks, which is the only complaint I have. The AC works well. It rides smoothly. The engine purrs. It only had one previous owner who took really good care of it and even after 80,000 miles and being 16 years old, it runs like a gem!

- Cathy D

2002 Chevy cavalier never burns oil. Great car.

I haven't had a ton of problems. It is a really great running car. Does not burn oil at all, only thing I have had wrong with it is a timing belt snapped once. A few sensors have gone off but other than that it is a really reliable car. I have had it since high school and I am now a 3rd year college student.

- Lena M

Chevy cavalier and still worth its value in 2019 even though it's an 2002

This car gets great mileage it is economy Worthy this car gets bri capacity for family driving. This car travels well out of town and around town. This car is an economy car and it's still worth it value in 2019. It rarely needs service. A simple oil change in a tune-up will get this car 50000 miles or more.

- Tee S

My lovely golden Chevrolet cavalier vehicle.

I have no problems with my vehicle although some people might not like it cause it it is low to the ground. I love my vehicle performance it stops when stopped and goes when go it rides smoothly. My car is very reliable and low maintenance. Very comfortable and I love the features of the windows and radio.

- Asia W

Great fuel economy low mileage reliable car.

A very reliable car. Not too many things have gone wrong with it in the past years. It is beginning to rust out after all these years. Has been a very comfortable car for driving on long trips. The interior looks like new and has worn very well. Has needed new abs sensors twice in the last three years.

- Kat F

Good motor great on gas. Has solid body

This car is very dependable. It has your normal wear and tear. Water pump, alternator, brakes, etc. nothing major. Mine has 270,00 miles and us still traveling an hour away every weekend. I absolutely recommend one of these cars. It's not luxurious by any means but is stable, strong, and dependable.

- Ryan M

Pros and Cons of a 2002 Chevrolet Cavalier.

Overall pretty good car. Signal lights (inside of mechanisms) had to be repaired. Has water leak somewhere on driver's side front and the mechanics cannot find out from where it is coming. Car is red and paint has held up really well. A little hard for shorter people to see out of the back glass.

- Louis B

It is a small car that gets the job done.

I like my car. The heat and air work great. My brakes act up in the rain, but they do their job. It drives well in snow for a small car. It is easy to maneuver and it is held up well over the years. I haven't had to put much money into it. The muffler needs to be fixed and it hangs a little low.

- Karen V

Why I love my Chevy cavalier.

I like the size, the back seat, the gas mileage, handles well, doesn't have tons of bells and whistles, handles well, nice styling, holds the road well, big trunk. I like the interior and the inside color matches outside color very well. Handles very well on the expressway going higher speeds.

- Diana D

Cons of cavalier: its meant for couples and smooth roads only

The dashboard has broken is several places because of direct sunlight exposure. It tends to fssl really small and cramped with 2 car seats in the backseat. The way the rear window is placed doesn't block the harmful rays of the sun. Any bump on the road can damage the cargo underneath the car

- Abigail H

A very reliable car with little to no problems.

It's pretty good, it's a very reliable vehicle, it get me for point A to point B very well and without any hassle at all. I would recommend this car completely. This car also has a variety of features including a lot legroom and trunk space and the speaker system is amazing and sounds great.

- Joseph C

Basic car for getting from point A to B.

This car is a good car, but due to age and wear and tear, the car has minor issues such as the radiator hose busting. The car eats up gas when using the a/c and the interior lights are not bright at all. The car will get you from point A to B but the car is hard on your body on long trips.

- Rhonda J

The great debatable. Drive comfortably and live right.

The windows are clean and tires are reliable and dependent. The uses of the car is a variety of great things. The smoothie transitions of everything is of great value. The driving wheel is comfortable as well as the seats. I really enjoy my car and the durability. I recommend for anyone.

- Joshua W

It is very, very dependable.

I like that it has lots of height from the seat, as all my height is in my body and I can't see out of some cars. It has had very few problems in the number of years that I have had it so I consider it very reliable. It is still a relatively small vehicle so relatively good on gas.

- yvonne b

It's a sporty looking vehicle.

It is very reliable. It's great on gas mileage. It has a great pick up for speed. Parts for repair are fairly cheap. The car is very easy to work on. It is a very dependable car. There's lots of room for 5 people to sit and a lot of room in the trunk for groceries and to haul stuff.

- Peggy B

Great motor and trans. combo.

The Chevy cavalier is one of the best cars we've ever owned. It's very reliable, comfortable ,gets great gas mileage, has never been a problem. I would recommend this car to anyone, it was also a very cheap car to buy. There is only one good motor in this car it is a 2.2 OHV motor.

- Lofty C

Overall it is a great running car, but the paint used is terrible.

The engine and transmission are going strong. The car has almost 200,000 miles on it and runs great!! The paint used on the 2002 models is absolutely horrible! The clear coat is gone in many spots and it looks ridiculous. The seats are not comfortable and it is a pretty small car.

- Amanda K

Great car! Reliable & comfortable.

Very reliable car. Built to last. Small, but comfortable. Only thing I would change about it is that it does not have cruise control. But half of the 2002 cavaliers do not have the cruise control feature, so I am not the only one and there are cavaliers out there that do have it!

- Marie P

My vehicle has a manual transmission, which not everyone knows how to drive.

Although my vehicle is fairly old and has over 180, 000 miles, it has never given me any major issues. I trust my vehicle. It has traveled to several states and never broken down. It is not the most comfortable car and does not have modern features, but it is an older model.

- Delilah E

Chevy cavalier review, best quality is it can run off 2 different fuel types.

The problems is that the brakes grind a little bit. The car will overheat sometimes when left idle for too long. The car is reliable, it has good gas mileage. The car is 2wd so it is not the best in the snow. The car can take gas or cog which cuts the cost of gas by a lot.

- Christian G

What else I need in a car

It got a lot of hail damage. The inside is small and it does not have enough bells and whistles. It is outdated. I would like to have electric seats. It doesn't have a warranty so when something happens it's going to cost a fortune. The Chevy is very dependable otherwise

- Amy P

My Cavalier has been a reliable and enjoyable car for the past fifteen years!

My Chevy Cavalier has been extremely great to me! It has been and continues to be a reliable vehicle, has great gas mileage and cold Air Conditioning! It has gone above and beyond my expectations and I have been completely satisfied with her for the past fifteen years!

- William L

2002 Chevy cavalier — great little car for a new driver. Gas saver!

I hit a deer a few years ago, so my hood is dented and missing some paint. I just spent $600 on new brake pads, shoes, drums, and rotor resurfacing. My car needs new struts/shocks. It does have decent gas mileage, but I do not feel comfortable driving it long distances.

- Amanda A

Purchased used and haven't drove it yet.

I just purchased this vehicle used from a friend. I don't yet know a whole lot about the car as I haven't been able to drive it yet. There have been a few mechanical issues because the car sat for about 2 years before I got it. I can give an honest review in the future.

- Brandy S

It may not be the prettiest but it is reliable and a good first vehicle to own.

My chevy cavalier has been a very reliable vehicle to me. I haven't had too many problems but over the course of the time I have had it they have occured. One of the problems was that my brakes went out and I had to get those fixed. Other than that it has driven well.

- Amber B

Chevy cavalier great gas mileage.

I have the four door has a lot of room for a small car. You get great gas mil I have had no issues with this car would recommend to anyone has many crest features only think I have had to do is buy tires great car and very dependable I would drive cross country.

- Carrie H

2002 four door Chevrolet cavalier

I paid $600 for my car around five years ago and have had very few problems out of it. Maybe once a year something semi major (cost wise) goes, but that's about it other than usual upkeep. It's an older car so the stereo isn't great, but that's easy to replace.

- Jessica T

The Chevy cavalier that goes and goes.

It is a great car as in engine wise and durability. The air conditioner works great beyond the best. Just my windows do not work or my headlights. Its an electrical thing that would cost to fix more than the car is worth. It has never broke down on me anywhere.

- Shannon C

Still running with high miles.

I recently purchased this vehicle as I am going through a divorce and needed a cheap car. I have had a cavalier in the past and really liked it. It is reliable and has almost 200, 000 miles on it. There’s rust, but for the most part it is still pretty sound.

- Stephanie D

I like the way the windows are always clean, and the seats are cloth.

For the most part it is been a good car, but the pain is chipped off in the top area and the radio is not working well. The original color of the car was like a teal but after chipping, it is gray and teal in certain parts and that is unappealing to everyone.

- Linda M

Not much repairs. Normal wear and tear.

This has been a very reliable car. I haven't had to do much work to it. Just your normal wear and tear. Keeping up on the oil changes. I mainly drive on the highway. This car is really good on gas. All and all I would definitely recommend this car to anyone.

- Brock C

I like how it doesn�t need a lot of gas.

It drives well! I just don't like how there is only drivers door and passenger door. The paint comes off really easy. I wish the seats move up more but they don't. It's my first ever car and it works/drives amazing. It is a great first car and I recommend.

- Britney E

Nothing really interesting details.

Not my favorite car to chose, I should buy s new one it is not relatable in my opinion. But if other people like it then good for them but I would chose a different one. They haven't made a new one in so many years so I need a new car as soon as possible.

- Sydney V

They are dim and makes it hard to see at night.

My cavalier is very reliable. It's not very good on gas when running the a/c. The headlights are a little dim. The front of the car is hard to judge because it drops off. The a/c has two option. . . Off or full blast. But when on high the ac works great.

- Rhonda J

The most important thing others should know about my car is that it is extremely unreliable.

The only thing I like about my vehicle is the fact that it has AUX cord for the radio and the radio actually works. Other than that, it's in very poor condition and has many problems mechanically and cosmetically. Overall, I very much dislike my vehicle.

- Heather D

It is lasts a long time. And is good with gas.

No air conditioning but runs like a champ. Never breaks down. Great gas mileage.. Spacious. Lasts for years. Nice trunk.. Cup have holders. CD player. Am and FM radio. I have really no complaints. I love this car and I'll keep it as long as it runs good.

- Kayla B

My car may be old, but with just some basic normal maintenance it has been running like a champ from day 1.

My vehicle is a very reliable, gets good gas mileage and is very basic with minimum extras. My only complaint would be it's a little tight, mainly in the back seat and small trunk space. Overall the likes overwhelm the dislikes of this vehicle.

- Cindy B

Very long lasting engine safe dependable.

It is a older car bought it used runs good nothing powered which I hate. Gas mileage ok drivers really good. Cavaliers are nice running cars hardly any trouble with them last forever. This is my second one drove it everywhere.

- A W

It's a really great, simple car. As long as you make sure to take care of it, it'll last you a fairly long time.

It's a really great vehicle in most ways. It's got a long lifespan. Unfortunately, the muffler has a bad habit of falling down too low, so expect to be getting it fixed every few years (if yours is as old as my '02, at least).

- Amber D

Its red. But the paint is flaking and ugly.

Falling apart and I can't afford to fix it or get a new one. Everything from the ac to the windows to the brakes is going wrong, I always have to put steering fluid, and its so low to the ground it's hard to get 8n and out of.

- Brit N

It is awesome on gas mileage very very cheap to run

It has very good gas mileage and I've never had a problem with it starting even though I have a problem with the switch every once in awhile I've had it for 2 years and I've barely even had to touch it with a wrench

- Justin G

Do not buy it unless it is under 50,000 and a year of warranty comes with it.

I like that it is not too big but is still roomy. It is good on gas mileage. Easy to drive & find a parking spot. I like that I do not have to get it serviced at the dealership. I do not like that it has rust spots.

- Colleen F

It has been a very dependable car.

It has been a very dependable car, very few repairs needed, mainly bolt-on stuff. For a domestic car I have very few complaints. It does ride rough, and it sits low, so that I cannot see over or around anyone.

- James F

Chevy cavalier. Great car. Runs forever.

I am on my second Chevy cavalier. Great cars. This one however has had a few problems. Mainly the air conditioning. But it is 16 years old and that is all that is wrong with it so I'd say it is a good car. .

- Sharon K

My car is a really good car.

My car is a really good car. It is good on gas and runs really good. The seats are comfy and the back seat is spacious as well as the trunk. I have really enjoyed driving this car for the past sixteen years.

- Samantha G

It gets really good gas mileage & is very reliable.

It's been a great car. Very few mechanical issues over the many years I've owned it. Main problem I've had is the paint job. Clear coat started wearing off a few years ago, so my car doesn't look too great.

- Cheri P

It is super easy on gas and is compact.

The biggest problem is, there is not enough space in the center console. It is very reliable, it is small and compact. Very easy on gas. Front seats are comfortable and backseat has room for 3 passengers.

- Michelle L

Chevrolet makes a good vehicle.

I like that my car is reliable. I've had it for several years and it has 165,000 miles on it with regular maintenance. What I dislike is that I believe it will rust out before it mechanically gives out.

- Danielle G

2002 white chevy cavalier.

It is a reliable car. Is missing some features that I wish it had such as automatic locks and windows. Does have about 135000. Has had some minor issues here and there in the time I have owned it.

- Samantha F

Two door car bucket back seats limited space.

My transmission slips sometimes and my power steering fluid goes to quickly, but other than that I cannot count on my car to make sure I get back and forth to work the seating is completely okay.

- Heather C

Great gas mileage 2002 Chevrolet cavalier.

Love it. Great on gas. Goes good in all weather. Very nice features. I have not had any problems with this car, at all. The paint holds up very well. Mine is older now and it still looks great.

- Carrie H

It is very reliable and extremely easy on gas. It does go good in the winter.

It is easy on gas is what I like. It is small and compact. My dislikes are it sits, and there’s not much room in the console. Whenever you put a drink in the holder it hits radio buttons.

- Michelle P

2002 Chevy cavalier still running strong.

My cavalier has 84, 000 miles on it and runs like a top. It does notch have electric windows and locks, which I would love to have, but other than that, it is an extremely dependable car.

- Catherine D

runs amazing for the miles that are on it and the year it was made

I love that the interior is in excellent shape. I haven't had any major issues with the car in the past 6 years that i've owned it. It's really good on gas and has excellent heat and AC.

This is a extremely reliable car if you treat it right.
