Review
I loved this van, but the temperature gauge started going up, so I brought it to a reputable garage, and they told me there were metal filings and antifreeze in the oil and that it needed a new engine. It only had 117,000 miles on it. Because of the design, which makes access to the engine very difficult, it would cost $3000 to repair.

I had the same problem with mine too, except I only had 78,000 miles on mine. Kept it in mint shape in and out, but couldn't get a quote under $3500 whether I rebuilt or replaced. Had to junk it. Had always liked luminas before that - even owned two others before it which each got well over 150,000miles before reselling - thought I had another gem... guess it was a lemon.
