OK this car has been pretty good to me. I got very lucky on the whole mileage thing. The person kept it in their driveway for years. That's where the problems started. This car wasn't used to being used every day. Very very costly for everything. Most people can't work on it without special equipment meaning you have to take it to the dealer to get anything fixed. The air alone cost me major dolars not to mention the timing belt.

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!

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.

I absolutely love these cars - I've had
over 20 different cars and the Red Hot
Z has to be one of my favorites.
The "marriage" between the engine &
trans is flawless -the performance is
unmatched in a mid-size category for
the cash. The brakes suffer a bit -
changed out every 6 months - but GM is
to send out some $$$ to offset. I'm
buying another one in a few days -
212,000 miles on my last one! Recommend
highly for the teenager or old dude
that needs some cheap thrills. Don't
let the price fool ya - Oh, & make sure
the you get the front bearings checked
around 80K-150K. used cars always need
some preventative maintanence! Have

150,000 miles and going strong. Has
carried me through snow storms,
getting married, having our first kid.
Every time I get behind the wheel and
drive on the hiway it feels like a
race horse wanting to go faster and
faster. It's low to the ground, wide
wheel base makes it a joy to drive.
The speedometer says up to 85mph , but
who are they kidding.

This is a great first car! Very nice,
sporty, and fun to drive. No major
flaws, no rust, or broken parts or
excessive wear and tear. Gets you
where you need to go. Roomy for a
coupe yet can get you in and out of
those busy shoping parking lots. The
color is flame red, which turns heads.
Great for all ages!
