1994 Chevrolet Lumina Z34 2dr Coupe


Review

We bought this car used in 99 with 60,000 miles. We now have 160,000 miles and it has been incredibly dependant. What the 94 Lumina lacks in style it makes up for in dependability. We have only made typical upkeep trips to the shop (battery, new brake pads once, oil changes etc). We have been on 10+ trips longer than 1000 miles and the car has been excellent in comfort and reliability. We are ready for a new car, but I hate the idea of trading this one in.


Favorite Features

Reliability, low maintainence. Great insurance rates.

Review

Bought w/ 30K miles 7 years ago. 100K miles now. A blast to drive. From 3K on the tach, feels like a V8. Curvy roads are fun. Rearward visibility is poor. No electrical problems. The tranny just blew. Repair costs are $2700. "Bye Bye Z34" An oil seal cost $1K to fix. The intake leaked and a computer chip went bad - about $1K. Hidden rust cost several hundred dollars. Timing BELTS must be replaced every 50K miles. Alternator went out. No leaks, but needs half a quart of oil a month. Turning radius is poor. Possibly the most fun I've had in a car. Would not buy another one and I'm a bit leery of Chevy now after 20 years of loyalty.


Favorite Features

210 horsepower - not enough, but darn nearly so! Mostly reliable. Roomier than the Camaro.


Suggested Improvements

Reliability/Quality overall. A tranny that lasts 200K miles. Timing chain instead of belt. Easier/cheaper to maintain. Tighter turning radius. More power (New Monte Carlos get a supercharger).
