2003 Chevrolet Cavalier 2dr Coupe (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


This car seems to have been designed to be basic transportation with a few extra features to make you forget that. While the Cavalier may be a bit higher priced than its rivals in the same catagory, you can't find a better mode of basic transportation. The automatic transmission is a charm, seemlessly gliding through gears, and the 140HP engine pops when you need it to. The ECOTEC engine also sips fuel, my highway mileage is easily 38-40 MPG. How we ever got by without 60/40 fold down seats I'll never know, this feature is the bridge in utility that hatchbacks always had, and traditional coupes could only dream of...until now.

Best Features

60/40 fold dowwn rear seats, increasing the utility of the car. Great automatic transmission. Good instrument layout. Fuel economy is better than the published EPA numbers. A/C is standard. Responsive drive.

Worst Features

Larger trunk opening. Better seat design, both front and rear needs more ergonomic engineering. Increased head room, and 6-way adjustable front seats. 4 wheel disk brakes instead of forward disk and rear drum brakes. Bring back the standard ABS on all models.
