2000 Chev Cavilar has had a hard life.

I bought this used with 141000 miles back in 2007 (Had a HERTZ sticker inside the Gas door).

The car was used for a paper route for over a year, Front brake pads needed replaced monthly.

Gave it to my Daughter several years ago 

She wrecked it last year, bent the frame but it still runs, wears out the right front every couple months.

Just did an Oil change.

The caviler wad a tough car. Keep the rpms down to keep head gaskets in place and keep the oil changed.

Around here the rear sub frame area rots out and the rear end snaps off the car in front of the Trunk.

With good maintenance, today's engines can outlast most car bodies. I wonder how many miles we could put on our vehicles if it weren't for the rot and rust!
