Cavalier - How many miles do you have?
Friday, June 19, 2015 5:45 AM
Hey Guys,

Let me say, there is no other member on J-body as crazy as me when it comes to cleanliness and not putting miles on my ride!

I have OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder). I used to have a gf living 300 miles away and I would take a 9 hour greyhound bus to see her and 9 hours back (wasn't going to put miles on my ride). Went to USF (university of south florida) 30 min way from the house, but took the public transportation 2 hours one way to class (didn't want to put miles). If it rains, forget it I aint goin anywhere (only to work I would have to sacrifice). Each time I would drive in the rain, it was an immediate 2 hour detail even if it was still raining outside and I would buy 2 cans of degreaser and spray the entire wheel, shocks and underneath - EVERYTIME it rains! She has not been driven in the rain since 2008!! Okay, so now you guys know how clean my ride is, top to bottom.

I want to know how many miles you guys have on your rides - I have 68100 miles on my 2002 L61 (5230 miles a year since I bought her NEW in July 2002).

Got bored, let see what you guys have.

My 99 2.2 had 186000 before I killed the motor. My 96 z24 has 160000. But won't for long doing a full rebuild.

Nice! Good to see cavy's getting up there in the miles. Good luck on the rebuild!

I put AMSOIL Signature Series 5W-30 oils so my motor can handle all the redlines I love to do lol. And keep it lasting as long as possible, however I want to rebuild my head and as you said, it's like having a new motor.

My first cav an 01 we traded in and it had 120k+ miles on it. I have always regretted trading that in when we did. It still ran strong and had lots of life left but the wife wanted pw and pdl so it had to go.

My current cav an 04 i just bought last month has 139k and runs great. I love cavaliers. They are great little cars. Not perfect but no vehicle is. At a former job all the route managers had Cavs. We had seversl with 230+k miles and never touched the engine or trans! That experience is part of what made me a big cav fan

Yeah it runs great it's needs quite a bit of body work as far as dings and dents but that's the only flaw I can point out. This is my first Cavalier and I love it. I definitely plan on getting another one day

Wife's 2003 is just over 105k miles....though she still needs a few body parts replaced.


My 2004 has been sitting off and on the last 6 years or so.....sitting at about 7000 miles I think. (been a while since I checked)

Shirley has about 1mil & some change with original motor & trans. She's a 97 2.2 previously owned by my mother and sadly improperly maintained but still running strong, even more so with me as it's owner now.

I have a 2000 Cavalier with the Ln2. Has 217xxx and doesn't give any fuss on 650 mile round trips or when I decide to push it through the gears as fast as it will go.

Kinda sad since I have driven so many Js over the years.....


Never expected this cav to have under 10 thousand miles, but having a kid then buying a house kinda put it on the back burner for while


Sadly, completely crazy car insurance has it sitting now, as I can justify spending 1500 bucks a year here in MI which I normally paid a few hundred a few years ago.....

I feel ya man. I should drive my car more and I don't. I pay 1300 a year for car insurance and 1300 a year for storage fees. $2600 a year and the car just sits as I live in Colombia. Not sure how much longer I will live here (started my own company and my girlfriend is Colombian). Would like to bring the J here but roads aren't all that great and its a very very sandy city where I live. I miss the car as have not seen it in 9 months

Bought my 2001 Z24 used (from the father of a teenaged girl from whose car it was) and have been "bringing it back" ever since, wheel bearings, nasty filth in interior (Mc Donalds etc).
I just replaced the catalytic converter after it got completely stuffed.
It must have been slowly dying (never got any codes) because now this thing has more power than it's ever had. Whoa BABY !!!
