i don't see why it's not a LS Sport... they came out in the last half of 02 when the ecotec engine was put in. replaced the Z24 in the US.

although, i don't think i'd buy that car... 3 years old and 78k miles on it... and there's no way in hell he's gonna get $10k for that car.

First thing I noticed was the lack of fog lights.

Sorry, had to do it...

Here's the "ask the seller a question" I just sent him

Quote:

I have 2 questions for you about your 2002 Chevrolet Cavalier LS Sport that you are selling...

1) What happened to the fog lights? They were standard equipment on the LS sport.

2) What engine is in there? The 8th character of the VIN on all GM vehicles is the engine code. The VIN you listed for the car has a "4" for the engine code, which means that car has the 2.2L 2200 engine. The LS sport came with either the the 2.4l twin cam, which has a VIN character of "T" or the 2.2l Ecotec, which is VIN character "F" Could you please clear this up for me...


Lets see what happens

Yeah, me too. As well the mirrors are black, should be red.

You can opt out of the fogs, but the engine code is definately a dead give away.
And you can get a brand new cavalier for under $9,000...

Not an LS Sport.. but perhaps an LS Sport appearance package?

In Canada, that car would be a "VL Sport"... looks like a Z24, except for the lack of fog lights and painted pieces.. only on 2002 models... in 2003, it became the Z-Type.

(Think Z22)

definately an LS or base model w/ the sport appearance package. i believe the ls sport had a 'sport' badge on the fenders

other than that, no fogs, mirrors are black, etc etc

karo- im nto too sure if youre right about the J/F

if i remember correctly, i thought the fourth character of a VIN was the chassis. every f-body (camaro/firebird) ive seen has F as the fourth character. every jbody ive seen has J as the fourth.

i may be wrong though......

its a common base sport model , the 8th digit of the VIN is 4 which is the 2200

no driving lights , no painted mirros , and no 2.4 or no eco

and the reply

Quote:

As far as i know the car has never had foglights? As for the engine, it is the 2.2l 2200 so I'm not sure about that one? i'm selling the car for my g/f and she said it was the sport. however, based off what your saying, i believe she may have a cavalier ls with the sport appearance pkg. she is the orig owner so maybe it was a mistake at the dealership? sorry for the mix-up!

SWEET! Too bad he didn't correct the e-bay ad though...
great jobs busting him!!! HAHAHA
Re: LS Sport on eBay - or is it?

least he was cool about it, he needs to change the ad though.

Well, this guy is desperate to sell the car... he E-mailed me again offering free delivery if I was within 200 miles of his house. He's also lowered the reserve (to what I don't know), and said he will take any reasonable offer. I think that may be for me since I busted him...

Also, i don't know how much you can change on an Ebay ad once bids have been placed.

None the less, NADA says the car is worth $6,100 trade in... unfortunately I don't think he's going to get that much from Ebay.

On Jun-12-05 at 09:55:15 PDT, seller added the following information:

Please note: This is a 2002 Cavalier LS with the Sport Appearance Pkg (front fascia, side skirts, revised rear bumper cover, spoiler and sunroof***)
Re: LS Sport on eBay - or is it?

An honest mistake I'm sure. Most of us are enthusiasts so we tend to pick at the details. Many of you would probably be quite surprised at how little the general public knows or cares about their cars.

Your a big Cobalt fan. But not a Cavalier fan?

They actually came with more than a lip kit. (16" wheels and tires for starters).

It is an LS & LS Sport. The difference is
1. 2200 vs Eco (Vin shows that)
2. Fog Lights
3. Painted Mirrors
4. different side moldings (LS Sports were tapered)
5 Crome OEM wheels. (not shown)

As for an apperence package, I was under the impression that it was part of an LS kit.

Later in the production year some of the LS, LS Sports did not come with the front lip. I don't know why?

02 was the change over but the 02 Z24s only hade badges on the fenders in the US. There were not sport badges on it except for on the trunk saying LS Sport.

How do you tell an 02 eco from an 03+ eco, if lets say they have done a front end swap ( Just looking at the motor)?

"The base Coupe and Sedan are also available with a Sport Package that includes everything on the LS Sport Coupe and Sport Sedan except the new EcoTec engine, fog lamps, body color power exterior mirrors and leather wrapped transmission shift knob. Additionally, the 16-inch aluminum wheels included in the base model sport package are machine face wheels. "



Research indicates there were two sport packages planned, though they may not have both been released:

1. Sport Package

Tires: P205/55R16 Performance BW

Wheels: 16" Aluminum w/Machine Face

Rear Deck Spoiler

Fascia Extensions

Rocker Moldings

Body-Color Door Handles


2. Value Sport Package
LIMITED AVAILABILITY.

Rear Deck Spoiler

Fascia Extensions

Rocker Moldings

Body-Color Door Handles

Chrome Exhaust Outlet

The side moldings are for door digs and in the pick above that is the perfect example of the LS (except the machined wheels). Looking Good!

Look at the molding half way up the door(side molding). See how it is straight across. Now look at a real LS Sport and you'll see the difference.
