1996 Chevrolet Cavalier Z24 2dr Coupe


Review

This is a great car and very
reliable. I have
never had to have any major work or
any problems with anything
on the car. The car gets very good
gas mileage (25-30) and is quick
compared to other compacts.

Vehicle

1996 Chevrolet Cavalier LS 4dr Sedan


Review

I bought this car new and have been
very pleased with it. Love the 2.4L
engine. I am 5'9" and the driver's
seat is fine for me. Gas mileage is
about 21 mpg in town. I have looked
at the new Chevrolets and the seats
seem very hard and uncomfortable to
me. The maintenance on this car has
been very little. The main reason I
would not buy another is the seating
and they no longer offer the 2.4L
engine.


Best Features

2.4L engine - has a lot of get up and go for a small car


Worst Features

offer leather seating as an option

1996 Chevrolet Cavalier Z24 2dr Coupe


Review

I bought this car with 53000 miles on
it and three years later its now at
118000 and was still going strong (some
bozo crashed into me and it got
totaled). It was extremely dependable
and the only issues i had with it were
normal things like an alternator,
brakes, battery, and a map sensor. It
got great milage (30mpg hwy) and was
peppy for a compact.


Best Features

sunroof was great. reliability and power options for everything. I drove the heck out the thing and it held up really well. wish it didn't get wrecked


Worst Features

the seatbelts were uncomfortable (which i believe they fixed the following year), the rear suspension was awful-if you hit a bump you would know it.

Review

bought this car about 5 years ago. it
had 60,000 miles on it. When I traded
it in for a larger vehicle it had a
whopping 122000 miles. the only things
I had to fix on the car were
maintenance items such as tires,
brakes, alignment, and muffler. I
really have nothing BAD to say about
the vehicle. I had to trade up to a
larger vehicle and had to say goodbye
to the cav.


Best Features

the get up and go with just a 4 cylinder, gas milage, and reliability


Worst Features

well this was a 1996 so chevy has made improvements. wouldnt be fair to list them without seeing a new cav.
