2001 Chevrolet Cavalier 2dr Coupe (2.2L 4cyl 5M)

Review

Had the car about 2 years now, recently replaced the head gasket ($700) and waterpump ($300), both typical of the 2.2L engine. Extremely fun to drive (5 speed only), ice cold AC, good stock sound system, sporty styling, has never overheated, decent gas mileage, good value for what you pay. Acceleration is great with the 5- sp! Cig lighter is in a bad place, as are temp controls, rattles terribly under 1500 rpm, hesitant idle, shaky at much above 70 mph, cracked dash (of course), "clunky" steering, dash/glove box rattle.

Favorite Features

5 speed transmission, acceleration, sporty look, 15 inch alloys, ice cold AC!

Suggested Improvements

Fix dashboard rattles and dash cracking problem. Move cig lighter. Fix the hesitation and rattling at idle and <1500 rpm.
