Great news for anyone in the market for a 1999 Chevy Cavalier with the ability to cause “involuntary abstinence” and a listed condition of “I hate this car”: the Craigslist ad of your dreams was just posted. Your (rusty) needle lies in the haystack known as Kenosha, Wisconsin, and it will set you back a mere $700:
Because these things tend to get yanked, here’s a screen grab of the lovely ad or posterity’s sake:
And for the screengrab averse, the full text of the ad:
1999 Chevrolet Cavalier – 2dr base model – Black – 166k miles
Ok, this car is an absolute piece of sh*t.
Seriously if you are a single guy and you were hoping to get laid this summer, don’t even bother reading this ad. Driving this car will assure you of a hot season of involuntary abstinence better than inviting girls to your weekly Dungeons and Dragons game in your mom’s basement.
This thing runs fine and may give you two good years before exploding into a fiery box of death. Or.. It could wait until you’re asleep the first night you take it home and just decide to end it’s own miserable existence by driving off the pier thelma and louise style. I just cant tell you.
This car has a bunch of dents and cosmetic stuff going on. Someone side swiped me in a parking lot and just drove off without leaving a note. (btw if that was you and youre reading this you are a complete d bag. I wouldn’t have even called the cops dude but you could have bought me a case a beer to drown out the soul crushing pain of having to drive this POS car to my awful job every day). I hit a deer last year and had to replace a headlight. Hitting a deer is f*cking terrifying, seriously…I don’t think the deer liked it either.
Almost rust free but I noticed a small spot starting on the bottom of the drivers door about mid winter. I thought to myself “I should do something about that rust spot”, then i didn’t do anything about the rust spot. That is pretty much how i tend to deal with adversity in my life.
ABS wasnt working right so i had to disable it.
Front end has a little noise to it when turning wheel all the way. Garage told me it was a bushing thing. I asked if it was dangerous to drive for the next six months and they said it shouldn’t be a big deal.
The gas gauge is like a drunk girl on her period, confusing, and mostly useless. You never really know how much gas you have in this thing so you just have to keep track yourself. I’ve had it stay on full for two weeks then I get a block away from my house and it goes to E and the light comes on. I’ve come to a traffic light with it reading a quarter tank and watched it go up to full, then down to a half before the light turned green.
As far as I’m aware this car has not had any type of malicious voodoo, or ancient Chinese curse placed upon it. (that is not an implied guarantee this automobile is not cursed, just that if such as curse exists I am unaware of it)
Sounds like it wouldn’t be a positive but this car is a base model with no power options. That is a benefit if you’re getting a old POS car. No power windows or locks to break on you and then you have to go to the junk yard for parts. Pain in the ass.
It does get good gas mileage with the little 2.2l four banger.
Lots of parts have been replaced on this car.
Just before winter it got new plugs, wires, pcv, fuel filter, air filter, battery, and muffler.
Computer was replaced last year, as was a tie rod and brakes.
Water pump two yrs ago.
All these should outlast the car
The Good and Bad:
This car has no stereo. Now wait, before you go on amazon and buy a cheap 20$ unit so you can listen to Pandora think of this as an opportunity. Can you play the harmonica?
I BET YOU CAN”T. But this is your big chance to become a pro at the mouth organ. What is the biggest obstacle to getting all bodacious like Mr. John Popper? Until you can learn to play correctly listening to someone practice harmonica is the most painful thing one human can inflict on another. Now you can use your time in transit to learn and no one has to hear you and want to kill themselves as a result. Before you know it you’ll be blasting out crispy riffs, and people will want you to come jam with their buddy’s band. So look, No stereo seems bad, but it’s really not. The cup is half full dude.
Please come take this car out of my life. I want to start dating women again.
And for of what you may have missed on the web…
