1991 Chevrolet Cavalier Z24 2dr Coupe


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.

1991 Chevrolet Cavalier VL 4dr Sedan


Review

Runs good and always starts on cold days, constantly has electrical problems. A great car to start out with, relatively hardy car. Had a power window motor go up in smoke (no damage). I would recommend looking over the wiring before buying. Other than that a great car with everything a student would need to get around.


Best Features

Reliable on cold days. Fairly sturdy.


Worst Features

Fix some minor electrical issues.

1991 Chevrolet Cavalier RS 4dr Sedan


Review

This is my third Cavalier: I've had an '87 Z-24 (BEST CAR EVER!), '88 wagon, and now a '91 RS Sedan. I have never had any major problems with any of them. These cars are reliable - never afraid to take them anywhere! The radios are awesome with kickin' bass! The mileage has been superb and the comfort and styling of the Cavalier is the best!


Best Features

I love the Z-24 styling! I am looking for a late 80's Z-24 to have as a collector's vehicle.


Worst Features

Since I don't have a newer Cavalier, it's hard to give "improvements". With the '91 I would have liked to have seen better cup holders and more of them. Standard cruise control and more than an AM/FM stereo - maybe and tape or CD player.

1991 Chevrolet Cavalier VL 2dr Coupe


Review

This was my 1st new car purchase and the
best $10,400 I ever spent! After 13+
years and 129,000 miles I've gone
through 2 exhaust systems, 2 starters, a
head gasket, 3 brake jobs, and one water
pump. But STILL a VERY dependable car
year 'round. Still handles good, good
mileage. Not the fastest or shiniest car
on the block - but I own it. NO car
payment, low taxes and STILL dependable
transportation to work. "Trade in
value"?...who needs it! Chevrolet made a
winner here!!!


Best Features

Dependability, surprisingly BIG trunk, love that 5 speed manual!


Worst Features

Could sacrifice some of the trunk space for the back seat(too small). Raise the nose off of the raod - front paint susceptible to rocks/dirt flying up.

Review

My car has given me very little
trouble in 8.5 yrs. It's easy to
maintain with very little mechanical
experience. I have done most of it
myself with a pretty basic tool set.
Ex.:Ignition switch and light switch in
the steering column, batteries, fan
motor, hoses, radiator, cooling tank,
thermostat, plugs, wires, light
replacement, water pump, oil, air, and
fuel filter changes. (Keep in mind, I'm
a girl...)I paid $3000.00 for the car
and have put another 115,000 miles on
it since I bought it. Mine has over
230,000 miles on it! My car has towed
more than it's share of vehicles. (I
never said I pampered it.)


Best Features

It is a simple car with very little to break down. I have the 5 sp. manual transmission. I get around 28 MPG. A fill up is only 11.5-12 gal. It is quick and handles well even at 70mph on the highway(legal here). It gets great gas mileage and is easily maintained.


Worst Features

Not much to improve. The headliner fell down (so I tacked it up) and the carpet on the rear package shelf has come apart. But, I live in Florida and my car isn't kept in a garage. So it gets the full affect of the sun. Paint is dull, but I don't wash/wax it, either.
