Review

My lumina is not in the best shape... when I bought it everything was great... however I never really took care of it. The 3.1L engine is very easy to fix. I got into a car accident, and totaled the other car, my Lumina started up, and drove away. I aslo had an experience with water, the water was all the way up to the bottom of the doors, and engine was partly submerged, it started JUST GREAT!!!! And ran awesome! However I have a transmission leak, and have heard that it is pretty common for my model Lumina.


Favorite Features

The dependablity of my Lumina, no matter what it goes through it still runs fine! I put a after-market cd player... the speakers sound great... they sound like brand new speakers... great soung quality!Roomy & comfy!


Suggested Improvements

Review

The Lumina was the first car I owned. I purchased it in 97 w125K Miles We drove this car everywhere. From NY to Canada to the South you name it. Great car great performance. Brakes wear is a trend of Lumina but not a big deal. Gas Mileage is decent for a used car. We sadly retire the Car at 276K Miles !! Original engine and trany. GM did a good job with this car and I will forever remember that.


Favorite Features

Engine, comfort, performance, reliability


Suggested Improvements

Breaks tend to go faster, more gauges on the dashboard mine did not have a temp. gauge even.

Review

I wanted a Lumina for almost 2 years before I could afford to buy mine used. I bought it 3 years old, with 102,000 miles on it. It had been well maintained and I kept that trend. When my daughter got hit by another driver, the car had over 264,000 miles. Still the original engine and transmission. Normal expected maintainence and upkeep, but no major machanical problems. The brakes wore out a little faster than other cars I've had, but that was a characteristic of this model. I had to replace the alternator about every 2 years; thank goodness for Pep Boys lifetime warrenty. I had only paid $4,000 for the car...I definately got my money's worth!


Favorite Features

Dependable transportation with lots of room for the family. Seating was very comfortable.


Suggested Improvements

Brake and alternator designs could have been better. Other than that, I wouldn't have changed a thing.
