2002 Chevrolet Cavalier LS 4dr Sedan (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


Bought this car for my wife against my better judgment. (cars reputation) I was told that they had improved build quality. They have not!! The car only has 55000 km on it and something breaks every week. All new brakes at 40k, fan speed switch, lower control arm bushings, broken rear defrost switch that required a complete heater control unit because you can't just change switch!! etc, etc! Everything squeaks! Not even close to being is the same league as my last Toyota or current Subaru. Can't wait to get rid of this car. I will never buy another GM!!!!

Best Features

Gets OK gas mileage. Still looks OK.

Worst Features

Build quality! Better engineering. Should be able to change out a button without having to put in a whole new unit. 2.2 ecotec very buzzy.
