1992 Chevrolet Cavalier Z24 2dr Coupe


In 1998 I saw a used 1992 Z24 for $10K w/15K miles on it. I figured it would be a deal. I got it at a dealership and an extended warranty with it. The problems started immediately with the heater core going out. When changing the oil antifreeze was present so they changed the head gasket, That didn't work so they replaced the water pump. It started blowing water through the head gasket so they took it apart, told me they determined the head was warped and placed the blame on me. I called the service manager on the carpet for than but got nowhere. The 3.1 V6 is notoriously a pig and underpowered as well as having coolant problems. 3rd gear went out in the auto trans. What a jalopy.

Best Features

Color - plain white The body style with ground effects was cool Front seats were comfortable

Worst Features

The 3.1 motor should never have been engineered and fit into this car. The car was heavy and slow. Performance was embarrassing when compared to my 1987 Z24 w/2.8 V6.
