1998 Chevrolet Cavalier Z24 2dr Convertible


This is my first convertible and my
first Chevy, and I love it. Some
people complain about the engine noise
from inside the car; I think it's got a
great purr. Not too loud, but not dead
silent like a Honda. Acceleration is
great for a four-banger with a four
speed auto, and handling is smooth.
The ride is nice, but still sporty,
allowing you to feel the road. Riding
up front with the top down, it's
remarkably quiet and not too windy. I
replaced the factory stereo with a
Rockford, which sounds great even with
the original speakers. I've driven
from Utah to California and back a
couple of times and never had a
problem. Just a fun car!

Best Features

2.4 liter; fold down rear seat; auto window buttons on center console (just like the old stingrays). Z-24 front bumper spoiler w/ fog lamps is much better looking than the standard bumper.

Worst Features

rear windows should go up and down independent of the top.
