1994 Chevrolet Cavalier Coupe Z24 2dr Coupe


Review

For anyone who likes muscle cars, but needs something with better economy and is more affordable, this is the car for you. It's full of torque. Get the manual shift version! The exhaust rumbles and the engine sounds great. The cool-air-intake looks cool from inside the vehicle. Mine has been great, so far. Easy to work on. Great economy for a V6. No rust. Torque-steer is bad, so put good tires on it. ABS is garbage. If you need to stop in the snow, better shut the engine off(I'm not kidding).


Best Features

Performance and sound of engine. Also, seats are a good blend between sporty and plush. I've reached 40mpg on a trip.


Worst Features

Clunky shifter. Crummy looking radio. Replace calipers with non-Delco system. Center console breaks. ABS system stinks.

1994 Chevrolet Cavalier Coupe VL 2dr Coupe


Review

With 129,600 miles on the clock my little Cavy bit the dust. For 9 years it was reliable and never stranded me until the end. Valve spring broke in 3 places and bent and dropped the valve into the #2cyl.-wrecking the piston. The sound it made was about as horrific as my desciption. $2500 new engine on an $1100 car? Nope. I will miss it. If only I had a garage & a junk car engine, I would keep it.


Best Features

Reliability, comfort, insurance costs, gas mileage.


Worst Features

Not a fun car. Manual trans helps but not much. Come out with a new platform more than once every 20 years.

1994 Chevrolet Cavalier Coupe VL 2dr Coupe


Review

Purchased used @ 73000 miles in 1999. Routine maintenance and some repair. 3.1V6 and auto trans. had 189000 miles on it and still reliable and strong. I love this car.


Best Features

Cheap to fix, low price, reasonable performance for its price.


Worst Features

Back seat room is a little cramped when front seats are all the way back

Review

Got mine new 10yrs ago. Until recently, w/ 57000 miles onm it I have never had any problems. Like others, my alternator just recently had to be replaced, but besides that it has been minimal maintence problems. It's a true value for the money. Only now do I realize what GREAT gas mileage I've been getting, esp compared to cars now! (What happened!?) The '94 has a great, cute style, love my bright blue color and is roomy, compared to the newer Cavs. The downside if you work on your cars or have others do,gen maintenance (oil changes...) is difficult to do on your own w/ the way they have things situated.


Best Features

Love the exterior apperance, cupholders, gas mileage & Economically soundness.


Worst Features

Improve: Cheap glovebox door, HEAVY doors... and even better gas mileage would be nice...but that's it!
