When I first saw the Z24 convertibles in the late 80s I wanted one but did not get one. Bought a beautiful 94 teal z24 convertible in summer of 96. I just love the style and looks of this car. Looks like a muscle car. Hood scoops, rear spoiler, and sporty looking wheels. Car has "guts"; can get up to 80-90 mph in a hurry and holds the road real well. Have had now for 8 years and not too much trouble except for a goofy knack for blowing fuses on the power top, horn and door luck fuse (one fuse). Had the car checked by two mechanics and they had no explanation, but recommended I put in a circuit breaker fuse instead of a regular one and it has worked fine since. New top after 7 yrs old.
Sporty look, hood scoops, rear spoiler. "Fish Mouth" look under front bumper. V6 power for a smaller car. Good take off.
Cheap plastic door panels. Passenger side panel split on me in 4th year. Had to be replaced by dealer. Expensive parts. Blew two alternators over past 6 years, why? Power door locks on driver side - have to push button to red to open door. Does not do it automatically like supposed to.
This car is awesome! I wanted a
convertible, and I wanted it to be
sporty yet economical. I had to have a
car that was easy to fix if it broke,
and easy to upgrade if I wanted. I
found the perfect car! I always liked
the looks of the Cavalier, and when I
saw this car I couldn't take my eyes
off it. I was lucky enough to get it
from it's caring, original owner with
36,500 miles on it. I've had it for a
month and I've put 1,000 miles on it
just riding around on the nicer days,
and it does stay clean and in the
garage, and I expect to keep it for
quite some time.
5-speed makes the most of the V6, good
grip on the steering wheel, sporty
seats keep me in place, 30 seconds from
fully closed to fully open without
moving anything but your right arm,
great looks, good economy, handles
great, cheap yet rare
I wish they still put the V6 in the
Cavaliers, I wish they still built
Cavalier convertibles, I wish the new
Cavalier didn't look so hedious, and
everything else I'd change has been
changed over the past 9 years
