2002 Chevrolet Cavalier Coupe FWDReview

Overall:

Reliable And Easy To Maintain — Car performs well, especially for what they cost. Handles as well as can be expected, accelerates well, and brakes well. Build quality is excellent for what it is. Sure there's some cheap plastic in parts of the interior and the glove box rattles, but it's not a luxury car. I like the exterior styling and mine has the "Sport Appearance" package. It doesn't go faster, but it looks much less boring than stock. Gas mileage is good, maintenance is easy. The only hard part is they stuck the oil filter behind the engine and above the exhaust so you have to take off the passenger wheel to get to it and then spill oil onto the exhaust to get burned off. Get a set of sticky tires and it's very fun to drive.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Everything not a con

Cons: Glovebox rattle, stupid oil filter location.
