2004 Chevrolet Cavalier Coupe 2dr Coupe (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This car has made amazing mileage. On a trip across SD got 35 miles to the gallon and in normal traffic around 30 miles per gallon. It runs well and the air conditioning is excellent it keeps the entire car cool.


Best Features

This car has an amazing sound system and can clearly play anything in it, and the interior could not be better it is soft but durable


Worst Features

None

2004 Chevrolet Cavalier Coupe LS Sport 2dr Coupe (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I bought my car in Nov of 2006, about to trade it in for something different. The suspension is really bad (every bump or hole in the road makes my car sound like it's dying, when any other car I've been in will go over the same ones very smoothly). I wouldn't recommend it for anyone with babies (small back seat), it's not very safe (car would crumble in an accident), the front bumper is removable, it kind of "clips" on, the turn signal lights and tag light have been replaced many times, gas mileage is not that great! There is no way it's 30MPG. I'd say more like 20. It's not a bad car, overall I enjoyed having it.


Best Features

Mine was very sporty looking (black w/ silver racing stripes), spoiler, sunroof, its pretty small and easy to drive!


Worst Features

They don't make these anymore so what's the point. This car was just your average car, nothing special, nothing bad. Just simple and affordable.

2004 Chevrolet Cavalier Coupe 2dr Coupe (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Bought this car new in 2004. Love the economy and performance-even for a 4 cyl. Never had a problem until about 5 months ago, the ignition coil went out suddenly. Other than that, no problems, no complaints. Love my Chevy!


Best Features

Love the 5 speed. Extremely fun to drive. The engine will spin the wheels in second gear if you know how to drive it.


Worst Features

Better finish on the interior. Even though it is an economy car, Chevy could have done better.

2004 Chevrolet Cavalier Coupe LS Sport 2dr Coupe (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I bought this car for the fuel economy and a manual transmission. I'm a college student who commutes to class every day, so the good gas mileage helps (~25-30 MPG city depending on traffic).


Best Features

The sport trim is nice and the moonroof is a nice feature.


Worst Features

The plastic interior needs to go and the seats are horrible. They're not good at all for road trips and the side bolsters are a joke. The front bench in an Olds Eighty-Eight is more supportive than these things.

2004 Chevrolet Cavalier Coupe 2dr Coupe (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This is the third Cavalier we've had in the family. It is a great car, economical, comfortable, with all the features I need. You can buy them at a great price, too. So far, like my other Cavaliers, this one has been reliable and has returned a steady 31 MPG driving about 70% highway miles. Too bad Chevy doesn't make them anymore. The Cobalt is a nice car but costs more.


Best Features

Good gas mileage, reliable, easy to maintain. Comfortable seats, handles good, easy and fun to drive. Warms up fast on cold winter mornings. Plenty of passing power. I could buy two of these for what the dealers want for one Honda Civic!


Worst Features

Start making them again!
