My mom bought the Lumina(nicknamed
Hotmama by friends) new in 1992. It's
been an excellent car since then. It
has broken a few times(4 alternators)
and a few sets of brakes but only left
me stranded one time in all 12 years. I
would definitely suggest a Lumina to
anyone. They're great cars!
The big, mean V8 sound/exhaust rumble.
Factory sound system kicks! Been asked
what I got in the trunk.(Just junk, no
Maybe a cupholder, better outside
doorhandles, better fuel economy.
I have had to buy:struts,window motors,
fuel pump, blower motor, dimmer switch,
brake lines, rear rotors, front rotors,
along with break pads and a heater
core. My trunk leaks too, which makes
for a car that smells like a foot. I
can't use my cigarette lighter or my
car phone charger in it because it will
blow a fuse. My antilock breaks used to
go off when I was driving down the
road, pulled the fuse on that one. My
driver side seat doesn't recline
anymore. Than as of last week, air
doesn't come out of the vents anymore
and my cruise control decided it didn't
wanna work anymore.
