 Purchased used 2000 cavalier in 2006. first problem (which has continued for 5 years) is that the service light will come on when the car is cranked unless the headlights are first turned on. if you turn the headlights off while driving, the service light comes on. it will not go off unless you turn the car off and restart it (with headlights on). second problem is that fuel hand does not reflect accurate amount of gasoline in tank. it goes up and down while driving (with the check gauges light on). or sometimes it is stuck on e or stuck on f regardless of how much fuel is actually present. third problem is that car intermittantly overheats and is always losing coolant. i have replaced thermostat, water pump, & radiator. three different mechanics cannot find a leak in the cooling system (despite pressure testing, compression testing, & block testing). we are baffled why it cannot retain constant coolant levels. this is a very frustrating situation as i am left without reliable transportation.

 My car would intermittently not start. would run fine, start several times while driving to different locations and then not start. left me and my young daughter stranded, would not have been good if it were in a bad part of town or had i not had family close to come get me. now i can't get it to start at all, don't hear the fuel pump prime. a mechanic told me to hit gas tank with mallet while trying to start it. it started by doing that, and i was told the fuel pump is bad and needs to be replaced, which is going to cost over $700...money i don't have. this i am finding to be a very common problem with this car....check out this discussion forum for many more complaints of the same problem at........ http://www.topix.com/forum/autos/chevrolet-cavalier/tvinic5tfu5sfsi5h ............. this car really needs to be recalled for the fuel pump, it is defective and dangerous. *tr

 When i purchased my used 2000 chevrolet cavalier in april 2003 about 1 month i started having problems. after putting gas in my car i would drive a little and then the gas gauge would go down to appear that the car was almost empty but it wasn't. while driving one day the car just shut off it had gas in it i had just put gas in it but the gauge dropped to appear to be almost empty. i had to get my car towed to the shop i was told my fuel injection went out. not even a month after that my car stalled at a red light and my temperature gage went in the hot zone my car wouldn't start i had to get it towed again to the shop but they could not find the problem. now here it is june 2003 my car is sitting in the drive way right now as i am typing this information. my son was driving home at 1:00 a.m. this morning from work when the car overheated again and started smoking. he said smoke was also coming out of the battery and he also heard noise coming from the rear of the car today is saturday and my car has to sit in the driveway until monday morning that when the dealer opens. i feel that something should be done. i don't think it is fair for dealers to be able to sale cars that are in this kind of condition and the car is suppose to be certified. i am making payments on the car and i am having all these problems. it is dangerous to be driving and the car decides to cut off especially at 1:00 a.m. i have to be at work at 3:45 a.m. and my son gets off work at 1:00 a.m. this is very, very dangerous for the both of us. *nlm

 Fuel pump on chevrolet cavalier z24 went out at 76,000 miles. it lost power and died all of a sudden in the middle of the highway. luckily, no cars were around as it was almost midnight. cost to repair was over $600, not including the towing. in doing some research i have found that numerous people had fuel pumps malfunction on their cavaliers, and on some cars newer and most with lower miles than on this car. same story, just loses power and died in the middle of the road. this was extremely unsafe. obviously this was a defect with the cavalier, yet they won't issue a recall. i have never heard from anyone that owned a cavalier that didn't have some sort of problem with it. also, had problems with the shifter cable and power window motor on the driver's side. extremely unhappy with the chevrolet. *ak

 I was on my way hme from work on a very busy road all of sudden car just lost power car would not restart took to shop was told the fuel pump was bad and needed to $$700 repair for something that i feel should not needed to be done on such a new vehicle i only had 51000 miles on the vehicle i bought a new car for this reason to avoid major repairs as of this date the car has failed again with the same conditions as previous just stalled and wont restart and the warrenty has run out on that( 12,000 or 12 mth) so that wilkl be another cost to replace this pump in less than a years time. this is utterly ridiculous on a 2000 vehicle for this to happen and gm states not are problem things happen , yes things happen but not continuous on new vehicles and the same problem i think gm really needs to take a closer look at this for some type of defect this is very dangerous and very costly

 While traveling at speed limit over busy bridge 1/12/04 at 7a.m. and slippery road conditions car stopped and failed to take any gas causing 4 oncoming vehicles to swerve and almost hit me in the rear. the car then starts and runs fine for a couple days then the car stops again on 1/14/04 again on busy highway causing almost a 3 car collision. this has happened several times and in the middle of traffic. i believe that i could have been killed on two occasions and many others could have lost their lives. i believe this issue needs to be looked at as soon as possible, it is life threatening. i was told that the fuel pump could have been defective. i believe the manufacturer needs to look into the fuel pumps on this make and model of car. *cb

 My wife and i own a 2000 chevrolet cavalier. the steering is beginning to have a distinctive popping sound and loosening develop. i know there is a problem and i am taking it to a professional to avoid serious problems. it is difficult to believe that gm could not develop a better steering column than this. it would seem a recall should be placed on gm for inspections to this particular problem (part). i know that this may seem trivial but i have already had to replace a fuel pump ($700 plus) out of pocket at about 2000 miles over my warranty. just seems like gm has yet to understand quality in the small automobile. or at least giving a little on an obviously defective part. example: i owned a 87 3 series bmw that i put 425,000 plus miles on and never had to replace a steering column. i did replace the fuel pump after an accident when the tank had to be replaced at 310,000 miles. a fuel pump at 39,000 mile and a steering column at 46,000 miles. *ak

 There have been two issues with my vehicle that i feel should be recalls due to the same problems that has happened to my car has also happend to other cavalier owners. recently the fuel tank gauge went out without any kind of warning, which cased me to run out of gas and have to call a family member to pick me up. the second issue is the plastic behind the windsheild on the dashboard cracked in two different places. i work with a girl that has the same vehicle i do and both of these issues also happend to her car. i just think these issues should be looked into. its kinda weird that the same malfunctions happen to two cars of the same make and model. another issue is i had never received a recall notice on the failed ignition switch. i had to find out about it online when looking for a new part for my car. thats kind of scary! thanks you for your time, and i hope you take great consideration in my issues.

 I was driving to working on november 19 2004 at approximately 8:30am when my car stalled at a stop light on a major street. i tried to give it gas but it would not accerate. i tried to start it a couple of times but it would not start. the car was on a 1/4 of gas when this happened so i thought it wasn't the fuel. i had to call my boss, who came out to try to help but had no luck in getting it to start or figuring out what the problem was so we had to call aaa and have them tow my car to an automotive shop. after 2 days of having my car in the shop, i was told by my mechanic that my fuel pump was completely shot due to my fuel guage readings not reading correctly. when my fuel reading was at 1/4 it was actually of empty. my mechanic then informed me that this has been a known defect for my year, make and model car. i was then informed by my mechanic that it would cost $675.00 which included parts and labor to fix this problem. at that time, i called the gm dealer because i thought that since this was a known defect that they should have it covered under some kind of warranty. i spoke with the service manager of the santa clarita, california dealer, who informed me that it has been a known problem, but that its not under any kind of extended warranty. when i heard that, i was very angry because i felt that if this is a known complaint/defect that these certain cars may have, why should i, the customer of chevrolet, have to pay for their defective parts? since i am in need of my reliable transportation, i paid for a new fuel pump (all $675.00 worth of it).*ak

 Gas gauge has started to register more gas than actually in tank and check gauge light does not come on, causing highway break down while gauge registering ample supply of gas. filled tank up again this week, have traveled approximately 160 miles and gauge still registering over 3/4 tank full. my car averages 30 miles to a gallon. for 15 gallon tank gauge should be registering under quarter tank when five gallons of gas consumed.*jb
