1994 Chevrolet Cavalier Coupe RS 2dr Coupe


Review

i bought the car in march with only 66000 miles one it for 1500$ cash. but got ripped off cuz the next week the tranny dropped, got a new one for 2000$ and it drove fine with plenty of power for a 2.2 liter. breaks went out a couple weeks ago got new ones.. mechanic ripped us off 700$ but they work fine now. this week blew a tire and the tranny dropped while driving to jensen tire .. but its on a warranty so im getting a new one for free. engine still runs strong though. but its a death trap for me


Favorite Features

strong engine good mileage and comfortable seat


Suggested Improvements

the exhaust pipe hangs low on just about ever car i've seen and the door hinges rust out easily

Review

I got this car in "05" with about 100k on it and I drive it about 130 miles aday. Im a Young kid I'm 21. I have the 2.2 its rusted and has a lil rodded but I have a perfect tac in it also I put a turbo on it only running 8psi a better cam and a 2 3/4 inch piping its still my daily driver never left me on the side of the road a beat on it all the time great car as long as u keep up with everything. Do an oil change with royal purple! All the time it helps the car out and protects it the best. The car has on the dash right now with the oem block rods and pistons it has 291k and still going strong. I love my teal civi killa


Favorite Features

No Air Bags!!!! No Extra weight!!!! It seems like it always wants to go faster!! My 14inch steel blacked out rims...


Suggested Improvements

Change the oil with royal purple helps the engine run smooth and only use 93. Use boosh +4 spark plugs k&n air filter replace the alternator every 2 years no matter if its good or bad with the battery upgrade the sway bar links

Review

Took my big Ford F-150 off the road as gas was getting too expensive for the mileage I got on it. Bought the car with a lot of mileage and little rust. Runs great, great on gas. Close to 40 mpg. Put 12,000 miles on it with no problems. Replaced rear brakes and self installed a new heater core. Very little room under the dash. I'm very impressed with the vehicle. Obviously the previous owner(s) took care of it especially up here in Maine with all the salt on the roads in winter


Favorite Features

Great gas mileage. Can go 545 miles on one tank. Easy to replace radio with satellite radio. Comforatble to drive and can keep up well on the interstate. Interior and exterior styling are great.At times the power door locks are a hassle but this is minor.


Suggested Improvements

None that I can think of.

Review

I bought my Z24 new in 1994 with only 3,000 miles, and besides regular maintence, have not touched it yet. I drove it till my daughter got her liscence and then gave it to her. I'ts still rust free, runs strong, and is the fastest car in the family. Great handling at high speeds, and fun to drive no matter what. Handles unbelieveably in the snow. Better than my four wheel drive SUV. All in all, its a great car.


Favorite Features

3.1L V6, handling, CD Player, easy and cheap to fix, lasts and lasts.


Suggested Improvements

Nothing

Review

I found this car as a trade on a backlot, with 80k miles. It was cherry, and has treated me very well. Like any car, you better take care of it though (fluids, oil) if you want it to last. Does tend to run hot by design but you can add an electric thermostat to fan relay to turn on fan earlyer. A little common sense will keep the v6 running perfect to 200k miles no sweat! competitve gas mileage,well built powertrain, INCREDIBLE handling, plus enjoyable power (and exhaust rumble) Get the 5 speed! This makes a great first car for your teenager, good to work on at mome plus with a few performance mods will make this a REAL head turner. Great crash ratings too


Favorite Features

Body style, engine power and sound. It's easy to work on and Outruns most hondas stock!


Suggested Improvements

Bring back old Cavalier body style, ditch the Cobalt's roller skate look! 94 was the last year to get a fun Cavalier.
