Of all the cars I’ve had, this is the one I miss the most. I had a 1994 RS sedan with auto transmission and my engine was rated at 120 hp compared to the 92 with 110 hp. Of the time I had the car I had only one complaint and that was the seatbelts. During this era government regulations required supplemental restraints until airbags. So,e companies used an automatic motorized chest belt leaving the driver and front passenger to attach the lap belt manually. GM mounted the seatbelts on the doors for front seats. This gave the occupants the option to leave them always buckled, sliding under the belt, or manually buckle after closing doors. My one fear was the door opening in a collision. If doors opened then there was nothing to keep you secured to the seat. For such a lightweight economy car, the ride was relatively smooth. Off the line acceleration was very good for a base model engine in economy car of the era. I once needed a 6 foot A frame ladder and was able to get it in my Cavalier. Fold forward front passenger seat and fold down rear seat backs and it went in easy. Was amazed at how easy it was to change the fuel filter. Lay on ground behind rear passenger side tire with a wrench and slip joint pliers. Scoot under body and there was the fuel filter for easy DIY change. Only one mechanical issue was a transmission lockup solenoid causing car the shut down until solenoid cooled down. Found an honest transmission shop who charged me little more than $100 parts and labor to change the solenoid. Wish I had found them sooner since I had to replace engine motor mounts from the sudden shut downs. On the highway it struggled a bit to pass slower traffic. It did accelerate but it wasn’t as quick to accelerate as from a dead stop. That’s where having the 3.1L V6 was a good option.
