1997 Chevrolet Cavalier 2dr Coupe


I purchased my mettalic green 2dr chevrolet cavalier base at 59,000 miles i was attracted to the value and reliability as well as mpg ratio, it is very smooth on smooth road and at high speeds it is quiet and tight feleling, however bumps are not its friend it handles well and can be parked easily from any angle, the coupe looks sharp when cleaned, the performance is decent its quick under 40mph anything above 40 wait a few seconds unless you want to dig your foot into the pedal, the interior mine being base with a black inerface is pretty nice with a coat of armor all. The rear seats fold down so larger things can be hauled in the trunk like a bicycle. im impressed it 15yrs old.

Best Features

Easy and cheap to fix if you want to do it yourself, Good engine seen the 2.2l go for 300,000 miles when tooken care of. the interior looks stylish and sporty the shape of the car is of a shark and looks great with tinted windows. Seats are comfy and heats up quick in the winter and ac blows cold. Saying this car is 15 years old its still well together im impressed.

Worst Features

headroom could be higher, bumpy ride overe bad roads, could use 20 more hp, but has more then its competion of 1997.
