1994 Chevrolet Lumina Coupe 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.


Best 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.


Best Features

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


Worst Features

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).
