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


I love my cavalier it amazes me how i can drive around town all day and use almost no gas. I am amazed by all the power I am getting out of the little ecotech 4 banger. my cavalier is mostly stock (no engine mods) I have a AEM cold air intake and a GReddy evo 2 exhaust and i can lay rubber in first shift to second and lay some more and get 30+mpg on the ride home, hard to do without switching cars. I don't know how well the car handles stock because mine was dropped probably 3 in before i got it but it handles like a race car i can turn a corner doing 30 in town:) i bought it and drove it back to KS from MO couple hours and was comfortable the whole way

Best Features

5 speed that shifts smooth as butter with aftermarket exhaust it doesn't sound like a civic or other ricer it has very deep and menacing sound reliable and cheap to drive its not a ford:) its a beast in snow mines droped and has less than 1/2 tread and can still get down snowy gravel roads

Worst Features

the stupid pull straps to drop down the back seat are in the trunk. on my dads 99 sunfire (basically the same car) the pull straps inside (but his seat isnt a 60/40 split) needs gauges not idiot lights but most cars don't have gauges anymore
