Review

I bought the Z34 Lumina 2 years ago and and was told that the timing belt had been replaced and would need to be done at 111000 miles. I have only driven 5000 miles since I bought it. Had not a single problem until just after it passed inspection 2 years after I purchase it, in one day it needed a water pump new serpetine belt, oil pan gasket, oil pump.and water pump. If I did not keep in garage and drive it so little these problems would have shown up in a month or two, most likely. I hear that the timing belt replacement every 60k is a must. The ABS brakes never worked and the ABS dash light came on right after 2 yr inspection. I understand that in NJ that is not cause to fail. Great otherwise


Favorite Features

Handling, comfort, looks, power, comfortable seats and overall features.


Suggested Improvements

Brakes, timing belt, cup holder

Review

I traded in an '89 S10 Baja for this car and I have to say it was an excellent trade. This is a truly memorable car and if I ever get the chance to purchase another, I will do it. I never had any repairs except a power steering pump which was only 40 bucks. I bought the car shortly after I graduated high school, and I kept it for over 2 years. Then I traded it to a '97 Grand Cherokee limited, but I missed it so much i had to purchase the car back from the dealer. I truly enjoyed this car. It has plenty of HP. I highly suggest if you see one of these for sale to buy it. You will not be dissapointed.


Favorite Features

Powerful and extremely fast. Handles great. Sporty. Rides like a dream.


Suggested Improvements

Easier to work on. More space under the hood. Better braking system.

Review

Since purchasing my Lumina I have had many mixed experiences. First of all, its a blast to drive and is put together quite well. But its like Murphy's Law, "if it can go wrong, it will"...I bought the car for $2000 cash and have put in almost $3000 in parts, and 99% of that is done by myself. If you're not mechanically inclined, it may not be a wise choice. I hope this could help, and happy motoring.


Favorite Features

Standard power, options, and exterior styling.


Suggested Improvements

More reliable componients, ie: radiator\cooling system, front & rear dash, brakes, O2 sensor, and other small internal engine components

Review

I remember the first time I saw a Z34 back in 96'when I was looking for a used car. I thought it was the hottest car ever. I couldn't wait to get one. I found one that had only 20,000 miles on it and was in good shape for a three year old car. I took it for a ride and that was it mine forever.


Favorite Features

I like the looks of this car and it is very comfortable to drive.


Suggested Improvements

It should have had bigger size disc brakes to back up the horsepower.
