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


Review

Got my cavalier in Oct 03. I handles wonderfully. My only complaint is it gets a little sluggish after 2nd gear.


Favorite Features

stereo/cd


Suggested Improvements

maybe the cup holders should be located in a different place than right under the a/c/heater controls. Not much room there.

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


Review

Poor brakes. I've only got 19K on this thing and the front rotors have already been replaced. When the antilock engages it makes a terrible noise and it feels like it's just rolling with no brakes. Dealer says it's normal. I can't believe brakes that sound like that are normal. Average fuel economy. Interior looks cheap, but car was cheap. Awful resale. Only one year old and it's lost half it's value


Favorite Features

Purchase price. CD player


Suggested Improvements

Brakes, fix the brakes. If antilock sounds and performs like this, then don't have it.

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


Review

The engine is sluggish, the imterior parts are cheap and break easily. It doesn't have much horsepower. It has more along the lines of grasshopper power. I wish I could trade it, but because it doesn't hold its value well I would be terribly upside down!


Favorite Features

Does not take a lot of money to fill the tank!


Suggested Improvements

Let a German company buy you out cheap and let them make the cars!

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


Review

This car was a big mistake. It's been back to the dealer 9 times & is in need of another svc call. The check engine light was the reason for the trips to the shop & there were a variety of problems - 1 part was replaced twice because the replacement was defective. Now there's a brake problem, the engine makes odd noises & my Dad said the film that's always on the inside of my windshield is due to a heater core problem. This car's a lemon & the dealership keeps stringing me along. I regret the day I bought it & if I can ever get rid of it, I'll never own another Chevy again! Don't make the mistake of buying this car!

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


Review

Great buy as a first car. Very simple efficient interior and great exterior looks. Aftermarket stereo's are very easy to install as well, no need to keep the factory deck in the car. needs some more performance that's the omly complaint. very easy to work on the car.


Favorite Features

simple design, good sound, easy to work on, a blast to drive


Suggested Improvements

more power, better seats maybe, but not a big deal
