2002 Chevrolet Cavalier Z24 2dr Coupe (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
I am a sport compact guy, domestic of
course. I buy a sub $20,000 car, and
modify it for racing, so I am hard on
almost every aspect of the car, and
both z-24's (my old '99 and my new '02)
have held up extremely well. Of course
I keep them maintained, but that goes
without saying. An excellent base with
which to build upon, if you are into
this lifestyle as I am. With a few
simple engine, exhaust, and tranny mods
Powerful 2.4L Engine, great looks,
lightweight with decent gearing.
It could use a short throw shifter for
the Z's, better stock suspension for
less body roll, which will squat the
car a little more. I feel the stock
height is too high, but that is just my
opinion. Overall, Good job Chevy.
