Mixed Feelings on the 2002 Z24

2002 Chevrolet Cavalier Z24 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Went from a '98 Ford Contour Sport to
a '02 Z24 Sedan. Right away the poor
quality of the interior was appearant.
It is really plain. Road noise is
pretty bad. Have had the car in the
shop 4 times in 6 months. 1st time
was the second week of ownership. The
car is peppy compared to the contour,
but the ride and handling pale in
comparison. Not sure how the car will
hold up over the long haul. Got the
ext warranty to 75,000 just in case.
The car has a nice sporty look from
the outside. Also, the gas milage
stinks for a 4 cyl!!! About 16-20
city & 23-26 hwy. I think the brakes
will need to be replaced soon, after
only 10k, they are getting soft.

Best Features

Nice Sporty look, nice 16" chrome wheels. Accelerates fairly well. Indigo Blue looks really sharp

Worst Features

Better quality is needed. Redesigned interior and dash. Better gas mileage. Less road noise would be nice. The dealer will not take my car to diagnose unless the factory radio is connected. It had to be mounted in the trunk. What a crock!!!
