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


Review

I bought a Chevy Cavalier as a car to get me through university as I lived a long way from campus. It was great, reliable and because of the lower price, I was driving a much nicer car than most of my friends. For a first nice car, it was a great buy and I am looking into buying a newer model in the next few months

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


Review

This car is really great. I bought it new with only 15 miles on it. Since then, I have driven back and forth with it adding many miles on it within the four years that I have owned it. I average 20,000 miles a year. Most of those are freeway miles. I've had to repair my brakes twice. Once at about 40,000 miles and the second at about 80,000. Other than tire rotations and oil changes I have not needed to do any other repairs. I have been hit twice in this car. Both times it was my front bumper that took the damage. The other drivers have been at fault and my bumper only suffered a crack in the middle of the bumper. There was no interior damage in either accident. The bumpers are really tough


Best Features

My radio display shows the title and artist playing on the radio. It has a roomy trunk.

Review

I have gotten great gas mileage out of this vehicle (up to 34mpg highway). It is a fun, sporty car with a little more kick to it than the average Cavalier. It is a great car for those that are single or have no kids (being a 2 door and a compact back seat would probably be a little bit of a hassle with carseats although the capability is there). This is a great, stylish, dependable car for those that want something fun to drive.


Best Features

One touch driver's window (to bring it down), seat design, exterior is stylish, auto volume and tone for stereo


Worst Features

The cup holders should be in a different place (they sit right in front of the vent controls) and they only carry 20oz drink size

Review

it's funny, when I read about the problems people have with this car, I just smile and nod, cause I have them too. Way too many of them, after 80k, rattling everywhere, cracked dash, water pump needed changed(expensive), now strut mounts need to be changed, cause of horrific squeeking, at highway speeds the driver door makes a noise as if the window wasn't all the way up, a/c had to be repaired, ..... I'm afraid to drive this car, what's going to break next? And this car isn't that old yet.


Best Features

Exterior looks.


Worst Features

Build quality.
