Have fin best of luck
Cavaliers are solidly mediocre, but always were reliable -- we had a 2000 LS in the family until about 2010. Got about 180K mostly trouble free miles out of it before getting hit by a car, fixing, hitting and elk, fixing and selling.

The Volvos are safe, quiet, nice, comfortable, and pretty affordable. I get out of it after a long drive without thinking about how I wish I hadn't been in the car so long. I drive one of California's most dangerous highways weekly, so I wanted something a bit more solid should someone try to take me out.

My Saturn(s) were great cars, and I still have the 98 in the family. It sure was loud in the cabin at 75mph though! My ears would be slightly ringing after a 10 hour drive.

I know you hate those too, though.

Mechanical Engineer - I make parts, like blend door actuator gears.

2005 Volvo S40 T5 AWD - 62k
1998 SL2 - 240k
1993 Geo Tracker 4x4 - 134k
1996 Geo Tracker 4x4 - 106k
1987 Mercedes 300D - 154k
