1999 Chevrolet Cavalier Z24 2dr Convertible


Review

This car really has some zip to it and nothing beats riding with the top down. If you find one without a crack in the dash, its a rare find. Seems that everyone has it. It also likes to leak water, but hey its a convertible. Also has a good deal of wind noise, but again its a convertible. Great car for the money


Best Features

Convertible top, good gas mileage, fun to drive


Worst Features

Crack in the dash, make it more water tight. Make the weather stripping cheaper to replace to stop leaks

1999 Chevrolet Cavalier 2dr Coupe


Review

This is my second Cavalier. The first one was a lemon. This one has been great. I have 204,900 miles and it is still going strong. The only maintenance is oil, tires and plugs. The mileage is great 29-31 mpg. The only problem with the car is a wind noise that comes through the windshield at high speeds with the right wind direction and high wind speed.


Best Features

The interior trunk release


Worst Features

I wish the car came with driving lights as an option. I put my own on and it helps with seeing at night.

Review

When I got this car it already had 80,000 miles on it. That was 18 months ago and I've put on about 50,000 of my own. I think this car will last forever as long a its taken car of. I've had only minor problems with it. It needed a new coolant cap because it was leaking. Also had a rusted coil, but was very cheap to fix. Gets great gas mileage but its a manual shift so that helps. Its much more fun to drive as a stick shift. I just going to drive it till it dies considering how much i have to drive for work each year. The moon roof works great and all the interior features still work too. No problems as of yet.


Best Features

My favorite feature would have to be how easy basic maintanence is; oil filter and spark plugs are easy to get to and easy to change.


Worst Features

Next time dont put the oil filter directly over the exhaust 'cause when you change the oil its gets all over it and then you smell burning oil for a few days. Other than that... GREAT CAR.

1999 Chevrolet Cavalier Z24 2dr Convertible


Review

I really like how the car drives the
only thing i would have liked to see
that was different on the car was a
better seal for water. it leaks like
crazy but all and all, a very nice car


Best Features

the fact that there are a lot of aftermarket products to make it look more intimidating to other drivers. the seats are very comfy the convertible works like a charm the engine is very fast


Worst Features

why is it that every cavalier has that problem with the crack in the dash. i wish that mine was a five speed. and for the love of God some nicer looking rims. better factory sound system would be nice

Review

I bought my used Cavalier in 2001 with
38,000 and since then have driven it to
hell and back (average 22,000/year
Total: 102,000 to-date). Hasen't died
on me yet! Only major problems was
with the ABS which was still covered
under warranty. But this car has taken
a lickin' and has kept on tickin' (been
in 2 fender benders and backed into by
SUV's about 4 times). This has been a
great second car (not as fun as my '89
Tracer Hatchback :), gets great gas
milage, and I hope it will last me
another 22,000 miles! *knocks on wood*


Best Features

Price (monthly payments are low), Gas Mileage, and the little spunkiness it has when accelerating.


Worst Features

Needs to be smaller. Wish it didn't point out in the front like it does.
