1997 Chevrolet Cavalier 2dr Coupe

Review

The Cavalier Coupe with the 2.2 OHV is not fast. With the 3 speed auto it is lacking in acceleration, but it is not unbearably slow, and it has good pickup in 2nd gear. Recently replaced Struts, front steering components, and Goodyear Tripletred tires result in an excellent ride, and handling is excellent. It handles curves at speed with a composed, solid feel. The interior is typical of old GM. Some cheap plastic bits, but a simple, easy layout. Brakes have solid pedal feel, along with rapid stops when needed. Lots of backseat room. Right now the A/C compressor needs replaced, but with 127,000 miles, it has lasted a long time. I run Valvoline Maxlife 5W-30 Synthetic Blend motor oil.

Best Features

Excellent handling, comfortable seats, smooth ride. Cruise control, when it worked, the A/C was ice cold.

Worst Features

Too late now, but a more durable dash trim panel would be nice. CD Player, 4 speed automatic should have been standard.
