1996 Chevrolet Cavalier Coupe 2dr Coupe


Review

I bought this car a few months ago cheap! Its been super reliable and gets great gas mileage. Perfect for someone on a tight buget or someone looking to mod a car. With its OHV engine it produce good steady power.


Best Features

Engine reliability and the exterior looks.


Worst Features

New seats and doors, they crack. Better wiper motors. More horsepower is always welcome.

Review

This car has been AWESOME to me. I bought this when I was a freshman in college in 1999. I put a TON of miles on it and it has literally never been in the shop other than for routine work like oil changes and brakes. This car still remains in my family to this day. It now has well over 200,000 miles on it and it still has never seen the inside of a shop!! I would recommend this car to anyone. The only reason why I bought a new truck was because it was a tight fit for me considering I'm 6'3", but I knew that when I was buying the car. If I was a smaller guy, I would probably still be driving this car to this date.


Best Features

- Gas mileage - Reliability - Sporty drive - Better than average appearance - Comfortable seats


Worst Features

- NONE!!

Z24 module has good acceleration, decent sound system, good gas milaege


Worst Features

Not a lot of room, it is definitely a small economy car

Review

My Chevy Cavalier was my first car. I bought my car used and she ran great for all 3 years that I had her. The only reason I had to get rid of the car was because of a car accident. I was hit by a driver from behind who was probably going about 35 miles per hour, which also caused me to hit the car in front of me. In my accident she performed perfectly, my only injuries were from the airbags and I was able to walk out with no serious injuries. This was perfect for a first car, was fun to drive, and was dependable at the most crucial time. I would recommend this car to anyone for its style and reliability. I loved my Cavalier!!
