2001 Chevrolet Cavalier Z24 2dr Coupe (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
Decent performance with 150 hrspwr 4 cyl. I actuall think it looks pretty sharp. Have several noises and poping sounds coming from the dash. Also have a rattle in transmission that is apparantly normal for chevrolet cars. Had the transmission replaced for a known issue for cavs. built before Oct. 2000. This was a different noise than the one that's not fixable.
Build the car BETTER. the sticker on my Z24 was around $18,000. For this much money I expect a car that's built a little better than this. REDESIGN the manual transmission. It SHOULD NOT be normal for a trans. to rattle when excelerating at 1500 rpm.
