Review

I have had this car for 2 years it had 63,000 miles on it when I bought it for my mail route. It runs great. The only thing I have had to replace was tires, brakes and alternator. I have done routine maintenance on it [shocks plugs and wires] but that is about it. It now has 105,000 miles on it and still runs great. If this car can make it on a mail route with all the stopping and running when it is really hot with no problems I recomend this car to anyone.


Best Features

I put XM radio in it. Love the music.


Worst Features

The hubcaps. They keep falling off!

Review

I have had this car for a year. It is
my work car and I drive it five days a
week. Also driven on a few trips to
keep miles low on other cars. It has
been a really good car. It has almost
162K miles. Has been well maintained.
I have only had to install new fuel
pump, water pump and brakes the entire
year I had it. Still does not use or
leak any oil. For what I paid, it is
excellent. Drives very good. Too bad
Chevrolet does not make the Lumina any
longer.


Best Features

Anti-lock brakes, auto door locks, powerful engine, good economy, good visibility, excellent handling, confortable, decent to good build quality.


Worst Features

Power windows and tachometer should have been standard. No airbags even on the 1994 models, styling is plain and dull, standard hubcaps fall off, dashboards tend to curl around defroster on these cars, rear suspension rattles.

Review

We put 225000 miles on the car in 5
years' time and only had one major
problem (the transmission required an
overhaul) at 201000 miles.
Unfortunately, the rebuild wasn't
nerarly as good as the original. If
you buy one of these, expect to change
an alternator every 75000, a water pump
every 100000, and a heater core every
125000 miles. The engine has only had
valve cover gaskets. The car almost
has 300000 miles on it now, so we're
planning on replacing it because the
body isn't quite as rigid as it used to
be.


Best Features

Roominess and good mileage (26 mpg mixed overall). Also, very goood engineering on powertrain and suspension.


Worst Features

Our most trouble=prone area was brakes, especially the rear calipers. Interior is not up to high-quality standards, and has squeaks andf rattles.
