Great car that is stylish and fun to drive
There is a popping noise coming from the front end when you turn left or right onto a transition. Mainly occurs in wet weather conditions.
There was a problem where the rear heat shield would scrape the rear axle when you hit bumps. Modification of the heat shield fixed that problem.
I love this car. It is the most expensive, and most equipped cavalier they make. The sport suspension put on this car makes it handle great. The bigger tires help it hold the road, and the chrome wheels add more style. The interior is a bit plain, pretty much the same as any other year cavalier. The standard equipment that comes with this car is OK. The engine really has some power to it, with dual overhead cams pushing 16 valves, and cranking out 140 horsepower, and 150 ft. lbs. of torque. It gets up and goes pretty quick. Although if you are in for speed, the car shuts off at 107 mph., not fast at all. The sport bucket seats are a bit uncomfortable at times, no big deal. The stock cd/tape receiver with 6 speakers sounds great. At some points it sounds like aftermarket sub-woofers. The cavalier also has plenty of capabilities to improve performance and style, which I am already in the process of. This makes the car even more enjoyable to drive. I would recommend this car to anyone looking for performance and style at not so "sports car" price.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
