I just bought my 91 Lumina Euro sedan
w/ the sport package. I pretty much
just use it to get to work and it seems
to be a decent buy so far. It has a
nice ride, is roomy enough and has
plenty of torque. Some negatives, the
build quality is not all that great.
The interior door panels feel like they
will come off any day now. It is loud
from the exhaust and also road/wind
noise is a bit excessive. I have read
that the rear brakes should be checked
often and that the charging system is
weak. Overall, this is a good car that
you wont be embarrased to drive and can
actually be fun to drive if you don't
mind some fairly minor quality issues.
Looks good w/ Alloys and Sport package
poor fuel pumps should be recalled
common problem. Interior falls apart
easily. Bad injectors and a feww
others bad. Otherwise when it runs
good and everything is fine very good
car lots of interior room. Recall door
handels mine also broke twice!!!
stereo bose and handeling
tinted windows better fuel pumps and
better door handels
I love my car however it has been
nothing but problems since I bought it.
I had to put new calipers on it, my
seat belt doesn't work and the hood
release broke as well plus it didn't
have heat. My door handles broke off
and it cost me 50.00 a piece for them.
I had to put a new belt on it plus I
have a few hole in my transmission line
and my pan gasket keeps leaking.
It is very comfortable and easy to drive
no more door handles that are located
on the window side of the car. Very
expensive to fix. wish a recall would
be reissued for the seat belts.
I bought this for $300 from a junkyard, who sold cars as trade-ins for other cars. Bought it with a broken engine mount, and after a 1200 mile trip the entire suspension is destroyed, but that's because of the normal wear and tear. This is still going strong at 179k miles, and I would rather pay to have this entire car fixed than actually buy another one. Even if I don't, i'm keeping the body to toss a 305 in, just to take it to the strip, thats how much i love this car!
I bought this car 3 years ago and have
had several problems. First, the rear
brakes have had to be fixed numerous
times, and still aren't right. But
that's common for this car. I had to
replace radiator when power steering
pump blew up. It had a coolant system
leak twice, had to replace intake
manifold, and replace fuel pump and
lines all in 3 years. But handles
great with the 3.1L, has great
visibility, and the AC and heating
systems are the best I've ever
experienced. AC will freeze you to
death in 2 minutes!
AC, heater, visibility.
Needs to be quieter, smoother, and a
more comfortable seat. Brakes need
massive improvements, and engine needs
to be more reliable.
