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!
Dependable transportation with lots of
room for the family. Seating was very
Brake and alternator designs could have
been better. Other than that, I
wouldn't have changed a thing.
