I bought my convertible new in 1998. I love this car. I have owned this car for 8 years. My car had 140,000 miles at the time of its death. My car was totaled by a full size Explorer (and the car took the hit). My Cavalier was the best car I ever owned. It never gave me any real problems except for the AC went out once but it was an easy fix. I am sad to see this car go.

This is my first convertible and my
first Chevy, and I love it. Some
people complain about the engine noise
from inside the car; I think it's got a
great purr. Not too loud, but not dead
silent like a Honda. Acceleration is
great for a four-banger with a four
speed auto, and handling is smooth.
The ride is nice, but still sporty,
allowing you to feel the road. Riding
up front with the top down, it's
remarkably quiet and not too windy. I
replaced the factory stereo with a
Rockford, which sounds great even with
the original speakers. I've driven
from Utah to California and back a
couple of times and never had a
problem. Just a fun car!

The problems I have had with this car
are minor. I had a window rattle in
the door which the dealership fixed, I
had to replace the brakes after
30,000. The sound system is good, but
don't try to crank it up too much. The
one big problem I have had with this
car is the cigarette lighter. For some
reason, using it to charge my cell
phone caused an electrical short which
at various times caused the horn not to
work or the roof not to go up or down.
By and large I am very happy with this
car. I like the way it looks, it can
comfortably seat five "normal" sized
people, and with the back seat folding
down I have a lot of versatility in
A Z24 convertible is introduced, cruise control is standard on all but base models, power windows and remote keyless entry are no longer available on base cars, and buyers can no longer delete the AM/FM radio. Second-generation airbags debut on all models.
