Just give them a real suspension

Vehicle

2001 Chevrolet Cavalier Z24 2dr Coupe (2.4L 4cyl 5M)

Review

Have put 22,000 miles on my 2001 Z24 since buying it new last year.I Have had no problems at all.Great looks and a good price.The car handles very well and is only lacking a better suspension.The build quality on mine is very good,much tighter and no rattles compared to my 91 z24(also bought new).2.4 is a little loud at idle but quiets down on the road.Great on the highway but it can get tiresome driving the manual around town,especially on bad roads when the car feels like it falls right in to potholes.

Nothing But Frustration

Vehicle

2001 Chevrolet Cavalier LS 4dr Sedan (2.2L 4cyl 4A)

Review

Only 1 year old and in the shop 6 times now.4 times for the same problem: excessive road noise in front tires--I think something's off in balance/make of the car. They swear that the loud squealing is normal. Hum. Something in the steering column broke within 1st month, trunk pops open everytime I drive, and something's wrong with the engine,excessively downshifts and I can't make it up the smallest hill without being passed by 1982 Volvos. GM says, "you'll just have to drive it in 3rd all of the time to fix this, nothing we can do" What?! This car has NO POWER. I'm getting rid of it before something MAJOR goes wrong and I am stranded on the highway.

2001 Z24

2001 Chevrolet Cavalier Z24 2dr Coupe (2.4L 4cyl 5M)

Review

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.

First car (kinda)

Review

Well, this is my 2nd car and i'm 18 years old. My first car was a 1980 Ford Fairmont, so I obviously love my Cavalier a lot more than my piece of crap Fairmont. Although it may not have the power of many cars out on the road, the 4-speed automatic w/ overdrive makes it quite zippy.

2001 Cavalier
By Mike Nomura on 06/04/02 00:00 AM (PDT)

Vehicle

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

Review

This American-made car has hade no problems during its first year! Sufficent for everyday driving. Gets 35.5 MPG 4AT. Uphill, too much gear hunting(up/downshifting). Solid rear axle needs to be independant for smoother rides. A/C is ice cold on max mode. Great value if without any options. Options depreciate to fast. Only large rebates would entice me for another Cav. Cheaper than a Accent/Rio with large rebate.

No Complaints!

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

Review

I have had my 2-door STD Coupe for awhile now, and there have been no problems whatsoever. The only issue that I have with the car is that it has such a wimpy engine...But, I knew that from the beginning. It moves..Just doesn't accelerate that great. But I have had no problems whatsoever and would highly recommend the car to anyone that wants an attractive, cheap, and simple car.

Review

I recently got a 2002 Cavalier base coupe, and i had doubts about the performance aspect of the 2.2 L engine. My car was equipted with a 5 speed manual transmission which proved to deliver good pick-up and acceleration. It will really fool you. Although it is not as refined as its imported competitors, it has all that one would need, all in pretty good locations. I recomend the chevy cavalier.
