Excellent First New Car
By Steven Horvat on
2003 Chevrolet Cavalier 2dr Coupe (2.2L 4cyl 5M)
I bought this car new inspite of what my parents have told me for 9,999 and added underbody spray, interior protectent at that time This car used to get 23-25 mpg but after my standered $200 dollars modifications to any car I get My mpg in city driveing went to 30mpg and 28 with the ac on! I have Royal Purple 5w20 engine oil, Royal purple trany oil. K&N stock air filter, Iridium spark plugs, and I pulled out the power robbing bong connected to the air box in the front left fender wall. Dynoed the car too. stock 153hp 156tq after mods: 173hp 180tq. Got a ram air hood too. 20k comming up soon great ride for my first new car.
Relaibility, Color, Price, Economy and lastability hopefully
The cup holders are right in front of the Air controls. Get a new stereo 1 Din and put the controle unit under the stereo then get an eq or have an extra cuby space where the ac used to be.
