1994 Chevrolet Cavalier RS 2dr Convertible


Review

3.1 Ltr FI V6 gives the little car very peppy acceleration, far better than all these bulky SUV's that I leave in the dust. Nimble manueverability, park anywhere, change lanes swiftly. There's something light hearted and gay feeling about a convertible. Being a 1994 it gets lots of attention, I got whistled at by a couple of young guys in traffic one day. I had very little money and needed a car, spotted this treasure, had been in the same family since new, well maintained. Bright Chevy Red paint adds to all over sporty feeling. I'm like old, over 60 yrs. and dig driving this car as much as any I've owned in the last 47 years. Chevrolet at its best.

1994 Chevrolet Cavalier RS 2dr Convertible


Review

I'm 5' 6" and weigh 150 lbs. the sporty little run about is a bit of squeeze for me. I'm an old man and like lots of cushioned comfort. Best suited to a younger person who is never in the same place for longer than 5 (?) maybe 10 minutes at the most. Lots of fun to drive, convertible top makes sunny and/or warm days loads of fun. At nearly 25 years old, you'd never expect it, still tight, well aligned, plenty of power, {talking about the car not me!, I'm 63} GREAT CAR FOR YOUNG PERSON! Tons of fun! Needed a car right away and this fit my budget, bought it from the original family--passed along from nephew to daughter, etc. The family was the original purchaser, stayed in the family for whomever was needing a daily driver. I got whistled at when driving it around a corner--that was welcomed surprised!

1994 Chevrolet Cavalier VL 4dr Sedan


Review

I just sold my 94' cavalier but it was my first car ever. I got it for 3k with 74,000 miles on it. It now has 104,000 miles after four years of having it. It has been an amazing car and is still running strong. It is so reliable and just plain fun to drive. Noting major has gone wrong. Replaced brakes once, head lights, 1 battery, 1 tire. The great gas mileage was one of my most valued things about this car. These make great cars, especially for town driving.


Best Features

comfort, exterior design, gas mileage

Review

i bought the car in march with only 66000 miles one it for 1500$ cash. but got ripped off cuz the next week the tranny dropped, got a new one for 2000$ and it drove fine with plenty of power for a 2.2 liter. breaks went out a couple weeks ago got new ones.. mechanic ripped us off 700$ but they work fine now. this week blew a tire and the tranny dropped while driving to jensen tire .. but its on a warranty so im getting a new one for free. engine still runs strong though. but its a death trap for me


Best Features

Worst Features

the exhaust pipe hangs low on just about ever car i've seen and the door hinges rust out easily

Review

I got this car in "05" with about 100k on it and I drive it about 130 miles aday. Im a Young kid I'm 21. I have the 2.2 its rusted and has a lil rodded but I have a perfect tac in it also I put a turbo on it only running 8psi a better cam and a 2 3/4 inch piping its still my daily driver never left me on the side of the road a beat on it all the time great car as long as u keep up with everything. Do an oil change with royal purple! All the time it helps the car out and protects it the best. The car has on the dash right now with the oem block rods and pistons it has 291k and still going strong. I love my teal civi killa
