Review

Best Chevy product of the '90's. We had 220,000 miles until it finally died. Wish Chevy would reinstate this.

Review

Bought in November of 93 as a new 94 model. We had a black over silver two tone appearance and the upscale LS trim package. Had everything including the 3.8 liter engine and a sunroof. But in the summer of 96 on a family vacation we had a terrible head on collision. The police said the design of the van protected our family. So we went out and bought another one. Only this time we bought the fully loaded Oldsmobile silhouette, since we couldn't afford it back in 93. But anyway, these vans are safe, reliable and have served us well over 100,000 miles and 14 years with only very minor issues.

Review

I got this Lumina Van for $1 at the ripe old age of 13 with 194,000 miles on it from a family friend. It needed a Tie Rod End on the left because it had a shimmy and shake I couldn't take. I charged the air, changed the oil, oil filter and air filter. It needs a new headliner but living with it. The automatic ride leveling rear shocks are shot but my mechanic said I can save money and put regular shocks on it for between $200 & $300. Also I had a wizzing sound in the front that sounded like the alternator - I changed that and the belt for about $230 but that didn't solve the problem. Used a hose up to my ear and the other end to the pulleys - its the compressor - mechanic says don't worry.

A few repairs/runs forever

It’s had its share of repairs, but isn't at all bad for a car with 224,000 miles on it that still running great! Awesome power and the 3.8 liter motor has a cool little snarl when you get on it. By 30,000 miles these vans all had had the same problems; alternator (finally had to go with the bigger one after four replacements), a/c compressor (sensor leaked and also failed), tires (belts separated). Then it had few repairs for the next 100,000 miles or so. We’re thinking of trading it in while it’s still running well, but might just keep it another year.

Review

Bought with all the options. Great performance from 3.8L engine, unlike the 3.1L engine. Gets around 20MPG at home but 25MPG on a trip. Lots of people say the design resulted in to big of a dash, but it provides security, giving it a 5 star crash test rating for the driver, and makes it fun and easy to drive. Was the first to offer a power sliding door, and the door works great! 5 modular seats that come out individualy make up the back. The front has two perfectly contured bucket seats. Has front and rear A/C and heat. The A/C is colder than our new Suburban. Has a wonderful black over silver two tone paint. Has 146,000 trouble free miles. Just take care of it and it will take care of you.

Review

THIS IS MY SECOND LUMINA VAN AND WE HAVE LOVED THEM. ON THIS LAST ONE WE HAD TO REBUILD THE ENGINE AT 115,000 BUT IT ONLY COST $1500. WITH GOOD ANNUAL MAINTENANCE AND REGULAR OIL CHANGES AND TUNE UPS THESE CARS LAST A LONG TIME. UNFORTUNATLEY THEY DO NOT MAKE THEM ANY MORE AND I HAVE TO MOVE ON TO A NEW VAN.

Review

Purchased this minivan 2.5 yaers ago. Very reliable, did 30K miles in 2.5 years without repairs, just regular maintenance. Great minivan if comfort is NOT your first consideration. Great price for an excellent minivan. Extremely happy I bought it and not the foreign makes.
