the white lemon
By adam210 on


2000 Chevrolet Cavalier Z24 2dr Coupe


i hope for chevy's sake that i just
got a lemon, but this thing is a hunk
of junk. not long after the warranty
was up it started to fall apart. wind
noise is VERY loud, as are the
creeking and squeeking sound that seem
to come from every sq in of the car.
at 55000 miles i have a rod knocking.
my mechanic said that he noticed this
happening alot in the ld9 "2.4l dohc"
engine; and a friend of his at the
dealership said that gm knows about
the problem, but it seems to happen
after the warranty is up, so they do

Best Features


Worst Features

i found out the engine "ld9 aka 2.4l dohc" is nothing more then a quad4 with balance shafts and a longer stroke. if you don't know, the quad4 was 1 of the worst engines gm ever made; known to crack heads at around 35000 miles. i read a editorial where gm apologized for building it.
