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


This car seems to have been designed
to be basic transportation with a few
extra features to make you forget
that. While the Cavalier may be a bit
higher priced than its rivals in the
same catagory, you can't find a better
mode of basic transportation. The
automatic transmission is a charm,
seemlessly gliding through gears, and
the 140HP engine pops when you need it
to. The ECOTEC engine also sips fuel,
my highway mileage is easily 38-40
MPG. How we ever got by without 60/40
fold down seats I'll never know, this
feature is the bridge in utility that
hatchbacks always had, and traditional
coupes could only dream of...until now.

Best Features

60/40 fold dowwn rear seats, increasing the utility of the car. Great automatic transmission. Good instrument layout. Fuel economy is better than the published EPA numbers. A/C is standard. Responsive drive.

Worst Features

Larger trunk opening. Better seat design, both front and rear needs more ergonomic engineering. Increased head room, and 6-way adjustable front seats. 4 wheel disk brakes instead of forward disk and rear drum brakes. Bring back the standard ABS on all models.
