Got my Sunfire when I was 19 and got rid of it when I was 30, so 11 years.

Got mine December of '99.
Helluva path that it's gone through over the years.
From a daily driver with ricey mods to mods that meant more than cheap autozone crap, to paintball team transportation, and finally a few years in the garage taking a dramatic turn to what I always wanted.
I'm pretty much through with it as funds aren't anywhere they used to be but it's always going to be in the stable along with the 'yota and Porsche.

My first car when I was 16 was a 89 cavy. Traded it for a 97 Z24. Traded that for my current 2001 Z24. Also had another 89 cavy wagon, and a 96 Z24, and my current daily 97 sunfire.

I have never owned anything but a J.

I bought my 00 Cavalier in 2001. Had just short of 9,000 miles on it then. It now has 231,000 miles on it. It's filled with little dents and dings, but I feel no need to replace it. Amazingly, other than the transmission and basic stuff like tires/brakes/battery, a lot of the parts are original. The only car I've ever personally seen that has held up better than mine is my uncles 96 Subaru Impreza which has nearly 350,000 miles on it - original transmission and engine.

It's amazing how long a car will last with a little basic maintenance. Neither me nor my uncle take "perfect" care of our cars. Just an oil change every 3-4k miles... The occasional coolant flush and tranny fluid change. Simple stuff. On the flipside you see jackasses who buy new cars and ruin them by 80,000 miles.

Your math....sucks.


I've had mine for just over 3 years now (renewed the plates yesterday), which is about 3 years longer than I've ever planned on owning a Cavalier. But, it's made a great beater car so far.

Hey guys, I just rejoined this group after many year absence. I owned my 1990 cav Z24 black since new oct 31, 1989 until it was t boned and totalled in september 1991 at only 22,000 miles. I ended up with a mitsubishi eclipse for about a year until i bought my current 1993 sunbird red 2 door 2.0 liter 5 speed new on june 7, 1993. Sadly it just met a pole hard, and isn't comming back. Currently looking to replace one of these. I posted in automobiles wanted.

I've had my 94 since 2000, so thats 11 years, but had a 90 before that (since 96), so 15 years of Cavaliers.

bluZ24 is the winner so far, has anyone owned a 85 since new? (or a 84 if you have a caddy I think)

Well, considering that is closing in on 30 years, i'm going to go with no.

=) Yay for smart parents lol. My mom got ours sometime in 1990. It's still alive after 21 years and 110,000 miles =). At this point I'd say barely hanging on though. I need to go rescue her.
