2002 Chevrolet Cavalier Z24 2dr Coupe (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I really like the Z24. The horsepower is enough to satisfy many. The style and comfort and great. My only complaint is that it tends to oversteer in a high speed corners so be ready. For Nascar fans thats "loose". The clutch has little feel but once you get used to it, it's not a problem. The engine has a great throaty sound. This is not an exhaust sound but rather the intake. The torque is quite impressive for a four banger. While the car is heavy the torque alone prevents needing to downshift. Need to pass someone just stay in fifth and press the gas. If you can find one of these cars take it!


Best Features

I love the volume:speed feature of the radio. Slow down and the radio get quieter. Exterior just looks good. Very quiet on the highway.


Worst Features

Stiffer Suspension. Move the cup holders. Lower car about 1 inch. Split folding rear seat would be nice. Front defrost vent "the big Y" reflects on the windshield.

Never a problem, good economy, decent performance, great basic car. I compared Neons, Escorts, Focus and Civics. they either didnt fair as well or were priced too high.

2002 Chevrolet Cavalier LS 4dr Sedan (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I made it through a lousy dealership and got an awesome little car. My only complaint is the power windows. Sure it could use more power, but I already knew i wasn't buying a corvette. For the price & what it is, this is an excellent and very reliable car.


Best Features

The LS has all the little perks with a low price still


Worst Features

Power window motors - I've had 2 replaced under warranty & i'm about to take it in to have the other two replaced.

2002 Chevrolet Cavalier 4dr Sedan (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


Review

It's not a fancy car, but it was a good value and it is reliable. I have not had any problems with this car. I use it to go to work. For the money it was the best and newest used car I could find for the money.


Worst Features

Air Conditioning could be more powerful.
