1996 Chevrolet Lumina LS 4dr Sedan


Review

Only had this car for 8 months and bought it with only 118,000 on it. It now only has 134,000. I replaced radiator, head gaskets, water pump, thermostat and it is completely dead and no one knows whats going on in with it. I am very disappointed and would not recommend anyone buying one.

Review

This car is great, love the 16 inch tires and rims, it's roomy, v6 bullet proof engine, 6 passenger seating, power Windows, and power locks, its very useful you can put a lot of things on it, I traveled far away and never put me off the road, regular maintenance, cheap to have, very quiet car, its not heavy so you can make it faster with additional modifications.


Favorite Features

v6 sound, power windows, power locks, remote trunk release, keyless, tachometer, auto trans.


Suggested Improvements

Additional gauges, oil, volts, trans temp. V8 engine. Fog lamps, cup holders in back seat, as the montecarlo slipbench in the back. Storage compartment in the top of the dash. 6 speakers.

Review

I bought this car new in feb 1996. Still own the car and still driving. It now has 211,100 miles. The only problems have been minor until last year. We had to get a rebuilt transmission installed. Love this car and will keep until it no longer can be fixed. Purchased a Pontiac Bonneville in 2002 because of on the interstate driving, but I still drive the lumina from time to time to work. As a matter of fact I drove it to work today. This is a 75 mile trip. Very reliable car and was a great price.


Favorite Features

Reliability and comfort.


Suggested Improvements

Make more of them

Review

Have had one for ten years. Fast, good gas, reliable overall. 188,867 miles - and going. Items replaced - Water pump, Throttle sensor, rear wheel hub & anti-lock brake sensor, front linkage (rough roads.) 2 or three window motors (smoker though - window always going up and down.) Handles well, better than it feels. LS model - pretty sporty for a sedan. I drive aggresively, but the tires wear well.


Favorite Features

Gas, power, steering, headlights.


Suggested Improvements

Better seat material. Better window motors
