I bought the lumina Euro of Craigslist for $500. It has over 211,000 mi. I don't know if this car has the original motor in it. I run and drives great. The motor is so in tune it sounds like the 97 olds cutlass 3100 sfi. The is my 3rd lumina I had a 93 Euro and 91 z34.
My parents bought this car in 1996 with 40000 miles on it. They gave it to me last year with 276000 miles, and still running strong. It now has 304000 and the motor is still running strong. They had to replace the altenator several times, thats about it other than regular maintenance.
Just a good car! (3.1 V6 is the best engine ever made!)
While the car has had the problems of any used car, it is a rather enjoyable car. One of my best friends had the Z34 as his first so we spend alot of time talking about the cars. While not what I had thought I would own for a first car all in all it is not bad for something I had to buy to get to a job. The car is American made which makes all the diffrence to me.
Power of the engine. Growing up a muscle car nut, this is going to be the one.
Not a lot of place to work in engine bay without a lift. I like to work on the car with my father who used to be a mechanic, and while I like working on cars, the lack of space makes it hard to do.
i've had my 94 euro 3.4 sedan for 2
years now and it has been nothing but
reliable. all i do is routine
maintenance. great lookin lines, very
happy with the quality of the car, and i
can knock 28mpg down on the highway.
only thing i dont like is the radio and
heater controls are kinda far reach from
the drivers seat
3.4 engine is a blast to drive, very
quick and powerful for a "family car"
3.4 is a tight fit in engine bay, wish
there was a little more room to change
the rear spark plugs.
I purchased this automobile originally
as a get around car. After having
driven it for 5 years mostly back and
forth to work, shopping, and
ocassionally sightseeing, I have found
that this car was a real find. I have
only had to have one expensive service
done, that was a brake job. Otherwise,
the car is a comfortable ride, has real
class, and everyone who has ridden in
it has nothing but good to say about it.
I particularly like the color of this
car. It is kind of a gold/champagne
color exterior and the same interior.
I enjoy the electrical features the
most. Power windows and air condition.
I am also amazed at the smooth ride for
the year of this car.
The only thing I would improve on is
the front windshield view. Either side
where it meets the side windows gives a
blank spot and makes it difficult to
see. I would also improve on the front
grill. Something better than plastic.
