    I'll Stick With Z24s For A While — Pretty good car, has a good motor, not too fast at stock though, needs mods like cai/sri, intake manifold, cams, bigger throttle body, etc. Doesn't look too bad stock, but can look a lot better with aftermarket paint, spoilers, effects, aftermarket hoods or bodykits.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: One of the best tuner potential cars Chevy's come out with

    Cons: Needs a lot of work to become fast

    Get It As A Cheap A To B Car, Nothing Else — It was a 4 cylinder so it got fairly decent gas mileage, but it still wasn't much to gloat about. It also got up and moved decently, still nothing very special. These things don't last very long though, so be wary when you buy one.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Cheap to buy fix and own

    Cons: They go bad very easily

    '97 Chevy Cavalier — brakes are touchy and can be squeaky after it has rained, it has needed new spark plugs, randomly the key won't turn over at times, its a loud car going down the highway, like the appearance but nothing fancy, this car was cheap for how many miles it had to begin with, it gets good gas mileage

    Pros: it's small, good gas mileage

    Cons: brakes are touchy, loud
