My dad found this for me while I was car shopping. It was meant to be a temporary car but I fell in love. The lumina never failed to start throughout the entire first Maine winter I put it through, though the doors did have a tendency to freeze open, but as soon as the car warmed up they'd thaw and I could shut them properly. I lived in this car for the summer of 2008 and the bench seats are like sleeping on a couch. I've seriously never been in a more comfortable car. I've never had a Major problem with this car, always routine maintenance done a little too late. Had the car for almost two years and she's in rough shape, but I've put her through hell. I love my lumina and highly recommend!

Bought this car in '98 and it's been one of the best things I ever did. I don't know if I just got lucky with it or what, but it's been great. Early problem with alternators, 3 in 2 years. Since then, just keeps going and going. 240,000 on it now. Starting to show some wear this past year. Struts, water pump, rotors had to be replaced. Starting to have other problems show up too, leaking oil, transmission fluid and water. My fault though, I think, I have not really taken very good care of the car. Never changed trans fluid, plugs, oil about every 7500 and never changed coolant, still, it just keeps going! My gas mileage is great for a car this size too,28 mpg. Love another this good!

Mine died at around 75K miles. The transmission slipped, the heads warpped, and boom, the whole thing froze. All in all, it was a basic car, nothing ever troubled me except the brakes, which were entirely replaced 4 times. The rotor design was so poor that I managed to break the rotor from the spindle and that is very rare.

I wish Chevy still made Luminas because
I would buy another if possible! This
has been a great vehicle and we intend
to keep it until it just won't go no
more but that could be when it has
400,000 miles on it! I would advise
anyone if they can get a 1993/1994
Lumina, with low miles, to buy it and
keep it. We have the original engine
in it but did have our trans rebuilt
this year. Our's has over 285,000
miles on it and we bought it 1 year old
with 21,000 miles on it. The only
repairs we have done to it is normal
repairs such as water pumps, fuel pump,
batteries, brakes & mufflers. Good cold
weather start ups too. Change your

I bought the car in 07/02 with 104,000
miles. It's a very roomy car. I get
about 23 mpg. The air conditioner and
heat are awful, not much blowing
power. The brakes could be better,
hard to stop the car quick. But what
more can I expect for a used car.

My family purchased the car used in
1994. Since then, the Lumina has been a
pretty good car. It now has around
75000 miles. The 3.1 engine is still
strong. The speedometer only goes to
85, but it can probably do 105-110. We
have recently had to replace: struts, a
computer chip, part of the torque
converter, etc. The drivers seatbelt
recently broke, but I was amazed to
hear that it would be under warranty.
I really like the car because of its
