2001 Chevrolet Cavalier Z24 2dr Coupe (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
I bought this car in November 2003 with 56,000 miles on it, it now has 148,000. The car has been very reliable, needing only a couple of brake changes I did myself. I put in an aftermarket air intake that made a huge difference in performance. I would describe the 2.4 as being very eager. I get about 29 mpg every time i fill, but have seen as much as 38 mpg on road trips. Lost of squeaks rattles and engine noises, but I drive with the radio turned up.
With the aftermarket intake the car is very quick. Front seats are very comfortable and supportive. I also love the speed sensetive volume on the stereo.
Too many noises. Seat belts dont retract right, you have to make sure you dont shut the doors on them. Rear facing child seat only fits in center, but can fit front facing seats in all 3 spots.
