2003 Chevrolet Cavalier Coupe 2dr Coupe (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Purchased the car in 2004 and got a good deal since it was an left over 2003. I was satisfied for the first several months then problems started occuring. I took it in for service several times and these problems still exist. Love the acceleration and the Getrag shifter is nice, but the crafstmanship that went into it stinks. My biggest complaints are with the heating unit since it makes strange noises, starting problems, the passenger seat moves when vehicle is in motion and NOISE. Whenever I go over bumps or train tracks the dashboard squeaks and rattles. It is a little embarrasing sometimes.


Best Features

Engine power, styling, remote keyless entry with panic button, fun to drive when on a flat surface, seat fabric.


Worst Features

PLEASE do something about all the noise! Add more insulation! Make the interior a little more appealing by adding some chrome accents and bezels. It looks very plain. The cup holders are shallow and need to have a slot for cups with a handle. Also they are placed in a terrible location.

2003 Chevrolet Cavalier Coupe 2dr Coupe (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I've had very few issues with this car. It looks nice, holds its value and runs well. I have the 5 speed manual and it has a lot of pep for a 4- cylinder engine.


Best Features

There is actually room in the back seat to sit up (for me at 5'8"). When the back seat is folded down there is an amazing amount of cargo room for this petit car.


Worst Features

Cup holders in the way of the AC, but I suppose there is no where else to put them...

Review

the car is fun to drive. it handles
surprisingly good with minimal body
roll it feels glued to the ground,
accelleration is peppy but not a
traffic light warrior. the exterior
looks great the interior is cheap
looking but ok.all in all the best
cavalier ever made.

2003 Chevrolet Cavalier Coupe 2dr Coupe (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Initially loved the cheap price I
paid, but soon discovered it was a
cheap car. No major problems, but a
few things have broken including the
a/c vent, seat, a few wheel covers,
and the accumulator assembly had to be
replaced. The CD player tends to skip
if an entire CD is played, no matter
how new the CD is. There is a lot of
wind noise, you have to turn the radio
way up when driving on the highway.
Get up speed is good. The car is light
and can be pushed around by the wind
on the interstate. The car looks
sporty, but you can't tell the year of
the car by the outside unless you're
looking at the front or the back.
Inside looks like my old Corsica.


Best Features

Spoiler, ice cold a/c, price, black color


Worst Features

I know the car has been discontinued, but I don't like that the cupholders can't hold water bottles without them flying away as soon as you turn. The cupholders make drinks get in the way of the a/c controls.
