1991 Chevrolet Cavalier Z24 2dr Coupe


Review

This car with the 3.1 V6 is very fun to drive. Munce transmission is very durable and responsive. The sound is great from the 3.1. I drove the heck out of it and I love it more than any car I have owned even though it is the oldest car I own.


Best Features

Strut bar over motor and heavy duty sway bars make it very agile with a tight ride. Short shifter makes for very fast gear selection. Very light for a bigger Cavalier model: 2500 lbs. approx.


Worst Features

Electrical and computer systems have had many problems along with the heater core and water pump. Electronic Spark Control under the coils stinks to replace. Chevy stopped using this 3.1, I'm guessing, because it leaves no spare room under hood and all engine repairs take much patience.

Review

I ordered this car in late 90. I had problems with hub bearing, starter and heater core much later in life. Changed oil every 3K with 0W-30 year round. Engine never leaked or burned any oil. Motor ran strong up to 120,000 miles when I sold it to friend. Last I heard it was still running and owner was impressed with performance. The car was driven hard at times but just kept on going. If you can find one that has been well maintained I would say it is a good bet. It was the first new car I ever owned so I felt the fluid changes were important. With high miles the motor ran like new and didn't miss a beat. Original muffler and cat converter replaced at 112K. Check oil change records!


Best Features

CD player, 3.1 Engine


Worst Features

4 wheel disc ABS, a few more horsepower and torque.

Review

This model set Chevy back a few years. Within the first year of this new car, I had injectors, fuel sensor, oxygen sensor, dash, head gasket and electrical system all fail and need to be replaced. The problems didn't stop there and I happily traded it in for a loss.


Best Features

Sporty looks.


Worst Features

Entire engine.

Review

The Car is 12 years old w/ 230000+ miles on it. I've replaced heater core (150 bucks). Replaced water pump (20 bucks). Spark plug fell out (200 bucks). Maybe a thermostat (2 bucks). This was a great investment. Z24 brand new was 14,000.


Best Features

The 3.1 V6. Good gas mileage w/ good power.


Worst Features

Seat belt improvements would of been nice.
