The 1996 Chevy Lumina is an extremely reliable car. We have had our Lumina for almost a year now and have had only minor problems. We drive from lower Michigan to Northern Michigan almost every weekend- even in the snow- and it has gotten us there and back many times now, safely. It is a great car for those who need something cheaper, but reliable transportation.
It's "heftiness". It is extremely reliable and comfortable. The huge trunk. Size- comfortably seats 5.
NEEDS CUP HOLDERS! It doesn't accelerate very quick, but it wasn't designed for that anyway.
