My lumina has been so good to me over that past 8 months i've had it..i have had to put some money into it but i expected that because it was not on the road for 5 years.. when it wants to go its going to move! its good on gas and you dont see many '93 2 door luminas out there very much..i like that i have a unique car and a reliable one too. i love my Lumina
good steering, good on gas, nice exterior design, big front seats, huge trunk!
there is always something braking on it... on clunking
I bought the car used of course in 2001. When I first got it the car made weird noises going over small bumps, and the dealership said they didn't know what it was. Turned out to be the rear shock strut. I repaired it myself, it was pretty easy. After owning the car about 3 years the ignition coils went bad. You can buy a upgraded coil pack now at your local auto parts store. I've done all the work to my car, it's pretty easy to work on, but the spark plugs are always a pain in the but to change. Other than that it's been a great car, never any oil leaks or anything major wrong with it..
Reliability. All wheel disc brakes. Cruise control, responsive throttle and excelleration. Quite, smooth highway driving.
Make the spark plugs easier to reach. Better shock struts.
I loved the style and the handling was beautiful. It was fun to drive and the feel of the wind flow through the car. You gotta love it. I totalled it in a bad collision with 3 consecutive trees after going sideways over a bank but escaped unharmed. I loved this car, but better it then me.
Automatic on the floor! Huge trunk! Great driving experience!
A common plroblem with this model seems to be that after accelerating it doesn't want to slow down and when you do, the service engine light comes on and it either stalls out or looses power. I thought it was just mine but I've heard from friends and blogs that the same thing happens w/ many others.
Still have it after 10yrs so I must
like it. Have aways liked looks and
handling. Brakes are terrible. Gotta
use parking brake always else cylinders
seize (another $400 bucks twice over).
Metal pipes in cooling system all rot
and leak. $400 for the one at the
intake manifold (broke off during
repair). Spliced a hose onto the lower
one coming out of the radiator. Really
dumb engineering. Needed a new computer
at 65K. Also trunk leaks and can't find
source. It's red and still looks like
new. Very comfortable to ride in.
Prefer over my Honda Accord to drive.I
must like it...I still have it! 17 and
25-30 mpg, not bad for 3.1 v6.
Nice riding car and I like the body
style on the 2 dr. and it handles
great. ABS has saved me 3 times from
getting creamed in the snow by morons.
she's been good to me.....bought her
last august....no problems until
recently...the rear brakes started to
grind horribly. got those replaced,
and then the fuel pump went just out
today. i still see a lot of these
cars on the road and i think that mone
will be around for years to come.
