2002 Chevrolet Cavalier LS Sport 2dr Coupe (2.2L 4cyl 5M)
After having a baby in 2001, I was beginning to feel way too momish. I missed having a small sporty car and purchased this car new in March 2002. Loved the car from the very start, very comfortable and roomy interior ( rear-facing car seat fits easily in and out of the back seat), great handling, and quick/zippy performance from the 2.2L Ecotec engine. Unfortunately, I have a tendancy to drive my cars extremely hard and often forget about routine preventative maintenance (like oil). Oil was changed maybe 5 times. My engine siezed in April 2007 at 83K miles. I have since replaced the engine with a 2005 2.2L Ecotectand now running great. Even at 5 yrs old the interior looks almost like new.
Chrome alloy wheels, trunk lid spoiler, ground effects, and fog lights give this car a great sporty appearance.
Quicker power windows. GMs are notorious for having painfully slow power windows (when rolling up).
