Fun car - I was unlucky

1996 Chevrolet Cavalier Z24 2dr Coupe


This was my first car out of school. For a 4 cylinder, it was fast and fun, great in the Arizona mountains. The seats folded down to allow transport of a bike, hockey goals, etc. I enjoyed the car, but would have liked a bit more pep. I opted for the 5spd manual. After 2 years and 36k miles, the clutch went out. Could have been me, but I've been driving a manual since 1989 and have never burned out another clutch. Sounds like my experience is the exception rather than the rule.

Best Features

Storage capacity, low profile, zippy engine.

Worst Features

Own up when you ship with faulty parts. Would have liked better stock sound system, but I've rarely been satisfied with stock audio.
