1998 Chevrolet Cavalier Owner Comments

Convertible top leaks and has done so since the first rain when I bought the car in June of 1998. Vehicle went in for repairs on several occasions with no success in fixing the problem. Problem has progressively gotten worse over the last years. Heavy rain floods the front seats of the vehicle as does washing. Finally gave up after several unsucessful attempts. Slowly over the last 2 years the window motors have gone bad preventing me from rolling the windows down. They get stuck and don't roll up. On 3 separate occasions my windows, driver and passenger side have fallen into the door panels and had to be repaired. I have spoken to a friend as well as strangers when I see them driving the same vehicle and they have all thus far expressed the same problems in regards to leaking and window motor. I refuse to pay $350 + to have a $50 window motor replaced in the vehicle.
