2002 Chevrolet Cavalier 2dr Coupe (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Purchased new in 2002. Great economy. Never failed in any way. Only work other than oil changes were brakes and tires. Poorly designed rear seat. Had to keep kids in booster seats due to the dip in the back seats. Also seats were made of cinder blocks. Loved the car till it was totaled in a 25-35 mph accident. Barely escaped severe injury.


Favorite Features

Color (light green metallic)


Suggested Improvements

Sturdier body and pillars. Maybe roll cage.

Review

It is a perfect car for getting me to work and back. I haven't had any serious problems with it. However it is starting to rust, but that will be fixed later this year! If you are looking for a safe, reliable, and affordable vehicle, look no further than the Cavalier!


Favorite Features

Lots of pep for a small car. Great handling


Suggested Improvements

To be honest, I can't think of any!

Review

Bought used in 04. Drive 100000km a year and have about 480000km on it now. Odometer burnt out, dash lights burnt out, countless rear strut mounts,a/c failed first due to wiring then due to probable clutch problem, usual headlight wiring issue, does not burn a drop of oil, reliable like you wouldn't believe (touch wood)


Favorite Features

Comfortable to drive long distances


Suggested Improvements

Upgrade the strut mount design, make more heat come out of the floor vents, usual cup holder issue
