Hi! Welcome to JustAnswer. Thanks for coming! I'm Ron and I'll be working with you on your question today.

-Does this vehicle have the 2.2L or the 2.4L engine?

-Does it need the complete exhaust- from exhaust manifold to tail pipe?

Thanks for holding.

The exhaust isn't that bad to replace. Front pipe is around $94. Converter is around $103. Muffler is around $68. There are some gaskets and hardware in between which adds roughly another $18. And then an hour labor to install it all.

As for the vehicle itself- the Cavalier was always a good, strong, reliable vehicle. The 2.4L engine is a good solid engine. And with only 120,000 miles on it, it's still got a way to go. If you're going to pay $800 for it, this woul dbring it to around $1100 after exhaust. Which isn't that bad, but seeing as it needs a few hundred in repairs, might be worth trying to get the seller down to somewhere like $600 or $700. If you can end up around $1000 after repairs... that's a fair deal.
