1992 Chevrolet Cavalier Coupe Z24 2dr Coupe


Review

I've had this car for seven years, this
should be the last winter before I get
a new car this spring. Looking back I
think I'll probably miss it. It has
decent power, especially with the
manual trans. It can be fun to drive
too. But I've had problems too. The
motor started knocking at 100,000. (I
know it's not an uncommon problem for
all GM 3.1 in the first couple years.)
I also blew a head gasket (on the new
motor). Other than that, it's been a
good car.


Best Features

Decent acceleration. Definately not the fastest car around, but it get you where you need to go.

Review

This car came with my wife. She loved it and
I hated this car with every fiber of my being.
It was uncomfortable, it couldn't get out of it's
own way, and felt like it would tip over at
every corner. The good thing is that there
weren't any options to break. It was pretty
reliable, except for the yearly recharge of the
freon, the replacement of the master
cylinder, and the alternator. For a GM
vehicle with almost 80k mi, I would say that
that wasn't bad. It still looked pretty good
when we sold it, but my father in law and I
are very good about keeping our cars up. I
wasn't surprised that the dealerships really
didn't want it as a trade in.


Best Features

well, I guess the paint, because it didn't flake off or fade and it got pretty good gas mileage, but that's about it.


Worst Features

better shocks, tires, brakes, transmission, engine, seats and any anti sway bars, ...but not much else

Review

My car (1992 Z24)has 220000K on it and
the engine does not miss a beat. I
have recently ran into troubles with
the water pump and belt tensioner
(while on vacation) but I feel
confident saying that the motor will
last forever. I really like the look
and feel of this car and enjoy leaving
my friends behind on the highway (In
their 2000-2003 caviliers and sunfires)


Best Features

Ground Effects, Handling, Lots of power for passing on the highway


Worst Features

Interior quality (lots of little things breaking)

Review

I purchased this car not only for my
commute to school but also I thought it
would be a nice car to tune up. In the
commuting respect it has fulfilled its
duty.In regards to its performance, I'm
disappointed. I understand it's not a
Porsche but I was expecting it to be
quicker than it is. It feels sluggish
and I constantly have the feeling that
something is holding it back. Even
after installing a few performance
parts (K&N air filter, etc) it still
feels underpowered. If you are looking
for a car to tune, don't buy this! If
you want a generic, low fun factor
commuting car, this is the one for you.


Best Features

I like the steering wheel...its the only faintly stylish thing in the car.


Worst Features

More power, lower ground clearance, less plastic (in and out).
