It was 10 yrs old with 93K when I bought it. It was fully loaded with an awesome GM Bose sound system. The 3.1 V6 was quick and powerful, yet with the overdrive, it got great gas mileage, 22 mpg city/38-40 hwy at 70+mph with cruise control on several long trips from Pa. to Fl. and Tx. The floating caliper was a faulty design and I had to replace the brake pads every 6 months. The r/r outer pad would be all wore out, yet the rest still looked new. Got smart and changed only the outer pad if the others had no wear. After 16 yrs, minimal body rust, but the salt did a number on the undercarriage, brake lines and any bolts. I'd still be driving it, but a truck hit me and totaled it. Still ran great at 216K.

Bought the car with intentions of fixing the rust and moding the car with Z34 model parts. Did some of this. The car is very reliable and quick, I recently took a newer model Trans Am off the line at a red light. Unfortunatly I'm now buying a newer car because I'll be out of college and looking to move. The engine is still great. The Buffalo winters just took its toll and there is body and frame rust, and the rack is leaking power steering fluid. If I didn't need a car to move south I'd be keeping this. Unfortunatly now my stereo system in the car is worth more than the car is. She handles great in the winter! I treated her well and she only got the best. Full synthetic oil and 93 octane gas

This thing won't die. It now has
174,000 miles and runs great. The few
negatives are the ABS, which quit
working at about 50,000 miles, and the
placement of the battery. At 12 years
old, the car just now starting to show
a little rust.

car, very dependable, sometimes way

I bought my Lumina in 1992. It had 13,000 miles on it. It now has 230,000
miles, beleive it or not. It has been a wonderful little car. Even today, it runs
like a top. It constantly amazes me at how dependable this car has been. I
drive it every day. It still looks pretty good. My original plan was to drive it
for a year or two, but it just keeps going and going and going. I am now in
the market for another one, but will hold on to this little 1992. If any one
happens to be looking at Luminas, I could never sing their praises enough.
This is one car that has met all my expectations.
